Inspired by WestOkid's NYC Bridge Hunt I decided to pick themes to document my home town, a project that is circling in my head for some time now. Is my home town spectacular? Far from it, but when scanning my 30 years old slides it occurred to me that old pictures show a remarkable image of the time, especially when they show mundane subject matter like cars and shops. So my 2 themes for now are Shopping areas and Churches. Both are doomed to disappear in due time or at least to drastically change. Other ideas are Clocks and Old and New, the latter showing older houses against the background of modern buildings. My preferred way of doing it is just to grab my camera bag and ride or walk around, hoping to be struck by a subject in nice lighting. I limit planning in advance to a minimum because I simply don't like that. These are made while taking a detour during my bicycle ride to work. The shopping area where I usually pick up my lunch, that same day. A very ordinary, every-day scene but there's a tremendous amount of detail in the picture which almost screams to be printed 1m wide. Only later I saw I got one of my colleagues in the picture .
