Schuldig landschap – Crime scenes

Schuldig landschap – Crime scenes

Wat is een schuldig landschap? Bestaat zoiets eigenlijk wel? Armando verklaart het landschap schuldig, niet omdat het de gruwelijkheden heeft laten passeren, maar omdat het getuigenis weigert. Het is schuldig aan het wissen van sporen. Een landschap negeert alles. Alles overkomt haar. Zij haalt haar schouders op gaat gewoon verder met … met niets. Aan niets is te zien wat er zich op die plek heeft afgespeeld. Slechts het ingrijpen van de mens maakt het mogelijk om het landschap zo te vervormen dat er een herinnering aan het verleden ontstaat. Een gedenksteen. Een monument of een bosje bloemen. Een hartje in de boomschors gekerfd. Het landschap zelf blijft ongewijzigd.

Vijf foto’s van schuldig landschap. Vijf drama’s zonder sporen. Vijf momenten die niet mogen worden vergeten.

Five pictures of crime scenes. For a split second five dangerous places. Five lives ended. No trace left. Landscapes have no memory.

These pictures are part of series on crime scenes in Europe

Tree of Peace

“I might cry tomorrow, but I may be smiling the day after. That’s enough. That’s the way life is. If I don’t lose hope – tomorrow will come. Tomorrow will come if we don’t lose hope… I learned that from Nana.But rainy days still make my cheeks wet with tears, even now. It was pouring, on that rainy day.” ― Ai Yazawa

The tree of peace in The Hague symbolizes hope. The hope of a future without war, violence or mistreatment.

Thursday Doors – Essential doors

Terminal The Hague Municipal Railway

My twenty-eighth entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Essential doors. That is to say if you are a railway carriage and want to enter the terminal.

The first lines in The Hague were horse drawn. In the first half of the 1880s steam trams appeared. These were rapidly replacing the horsedrawn lines, especially in the longer services such as the line between The Hague and Delft in July 1887, still in service today, but now extended to Scheveningen Noorderstrand. In 06-08-1904 the first electrified line went into service, being line 9 between Plein and Scheveingen Kurhaus. Most of this line is still part of the actual line between Vrederust and Scheveningen Noorderstrand. – bron wikipedia
