Photography and Short Stories

ZP001

Graphic designer with a passion for photography and addicted to ‘buchstaben’. Sailing instructor. Catlover. Writer and interim manager. Traveler. Student at the Academy of applied Photographic in Rotterdam.

Impossible combinations.

Some years ago I was surfing the web and came across a nice cartoon: an adorable Witch with a black cat on her broom. And since I consider myself as someone with an opinion, a view, the name for my blog was born:

witchwithaview

Witchwithaview.

I am Dutch. So please forgive me my mistakes in grammar.

My blog is a reflection of myself. Photo’s in combination with text, short stories and poems.  I am a Graphic Artist who worked in management positions for over 35 year. But that’s going to change. I have decided to pick up the old profession and do what I love to do.

Working with text and images. For a living. Starting March 2016.

Last but etc. etc. I am a qualified and professional sailing instructor, coaching other sailing instructors to become better. And learning on the fly that sometimes they are much, much better than I am. They only don’t know it. Yet.. So I show them.

  1. We visited the Netherlands in May this year and loved every minute of it. Now I have to ask – do you ride a bicycle or drive a car? We were in awe of everyone on their bikes. 🙂

      I am Dutch 🙂 I do ride a bike but not often. I mostly travel by car or by motorbike, depending on the weather. Most people in the Cities don’t even own car so they use a bike. I live in Gouda. Please take a look at https://witchwithaview.com/2014/03/29/weekly-photo-challenge-street-life-in-holland/ You see a lot of bikes in my hometown! And thanks for visiting The Netherlands!

    amaai, er zijn hier heel veel karakterkenmerken die ik in mijzelf herken. Het voelt goed om het door iemand anders opgesomt te horen.
