Experimental Skies 2

The weekly theme is ‘experimental’.

During a short holiday in the South of Spain we had an apartment with a breath taking view over the Mediterranean Sea. Using a long lens made the view even more fun. The effects of light, water and sky were quite surprising.

Chaos: Sky Blue

This weekly theme is ‘chaos’.

Chaos in the end results into an order of something new in a different form or shape. It is about flow and freedom to play and create and destroy. For me clouds fit that picture especially when they tower over us as giants looking down on our flat land.
Or race it on the wind in Autumn, or slowly hover lazily as in Summer. In my head I can always hear this song looking at clouds in a blue sky: Sky Blue by Peter Gabriel.

Cherry on Top (Clouds)

This weekly theme is ‘cherry on top’.

The Netherlands are a flat country. Horizons are low. Sometimes you have the luck to cover up a scenic photo with a beautiful cloudy sky. Especially when your are driven in a just purchased new car. No cherries here though.

Pure (White)

This weekly theme is ‘pure’.

Robben Island is a small island, a few miles south of Cape Town in Table Bay. The island was used for a number of purposes. But it is most ‘famous’ for its use as a prison. The Dutch Colonists were the first to use this island for that purpose. But during Apartheid in South Africa it was a facility to isolate and banish political prisoners. Among them Nelson Mandela.

Now the island is a museum and a World Heritage Site. But not simply a museum that tells and shows how things were. A visit to the museum shows how transformation of a shared history can result in a new start of a shared future. The tour guides of the museum are former guards and prisoners. They show people around, telling about the past, adding their own experience and stories. But they also emphasize the prize of human rights, freedom, equality and the necessity of critical debate and dialogue.
