Many photographers will only have one type of camera in their bags or around their necks. We always see the “pros” with two or more cameras, changing between them as they see fit.

When you have a point ‘n’ shoot camera, this is all the possibilities you get, either have one and do everything with it or have many and do the same with all of them. The need for multiple P&S cameras is inexistent. The DSLRs of today have the distinct possibility to change between lenses. So let’s explore this a bit …

Photography is all about the image. We all know that. Some people think this is not enough and step to the moving images. They buy new cameras and record everything they see in their lives. Contrary to the photo people, they will need some more material to show their results to the world.

Photographs can still be presented in the “old fashioned” way of paper. However, sometimes it is interesting to add a little extra in the form of a sound byte to the picture to enhance the atmosphere that was there when the picture was taken.

That’s what photography is all about. One of the reasons I don’t “photoshop” my pictures is that I like the memories of the particular moments the pictures were taken.

On the other hand, I do photoshop pictures if they don’t come out the way I remember the original moment. HDR or High Dynamic Range treatment of a picture is ok with me, if done properly. Photoshopping the colours from green to blue and back is not. Perhaps I’m just an old fashioned photographer. Memories, however, are priceless even if the moments are not far behind us.

Or should I say Fall Colors? For some people it is clear that the word Fall is typically used in North America and Autumn typically in Britain. Here in Canada we mix and match. Not easy to learn.

I guess that learning English in Canada will “colour” your language in an unmistakable way. Here are some colours that we have here in Canada when fall comes…

A city like Leeuwarden is very interesting on the historical point of view. However, when you go somewhere, you want to see more of the country than a few old buildings in a single city.

So we went out of the city, different places, different things to see… You don’t want to miss the sea if you’re going to Holland, right?
