‘Going Dutch’

Mooie plaatjes van Nederland door Van Gogh en Monet.Ik heb besloten om toch maar in het Nederlands verder te gaan. Mijn Engels is natuurlijk niet perfect en in het Nederlands kan ik me beter uitdrukken. Ik krijg best wel wat internationale bezoekers, maar uiteindelijk zijn het toch de Hollanders (of de Belgen) die wat achter laten, en daar gaat het om! Mijn categorieën en andere dingen laat ik wel in het Engels. Ik ben te lui om het te veranderen :) Verder ben ik niet meer zo blij met mijn layout, dus als het de komende dagen er een beetje gek uit ziet dan weet je dat ik eraan het sleutelen ben ;)

Photography: sneak preview!

Yesterday I picked up my new photos. This roll of film has been stuck in my camera for a long time! A lot of the photos were shot in Maastricht, back in August! Anyways, I really like the photos. I wanted to scan them but apparently my dad's scanner sucks big time. So this is just a sneak preview with crappy scan quality. I'll scan them with my mom's scanner next week and then upload them on flickr. So there's more to come, but this is just a preview. Don't mind the bad quality and dark colors, that's because of the sanner. What do you think?

Music is very important to me, I listen to music almost everyday. I have a lot CD's because I still like actually having the CD instead of some downloads (but of course I do download most of my music, I can't afford to buy all the CD's I want ;)). Anyways, now and then I post some of my favorite songs on my Tumblr. And on this page you can find a whole playlist of all the songs posted on my Tumblr!
