De meeuwenbarrière


Vooraf gaat deze aflevering

Een van de vele beginnetjes van de zomerverhalen:

Op de parkeerplaats van ‘De Zeester’ is het een drukte van belang. Tussen een haag van belangstellenden banen oom Frits en tante Coby, begeleid door de politieagent, zich een weg naar hun autootje. Met een rood-wit lint is de grens bepaald: tot hier en niet verder. Het is een plagende barrière, alleen de af- en aanvliegende meeuwen krijgen vrij baan. En van die vrijheid wordt nadrukkelijk gebruik gemaakt. Het is prachtig om de natuur aan het werk te zien.

Alhoewel, oom en tante denken daar iets genuanceerder over, zeker nu ze een wandeling van een uur te wachten staat om hun pension te bereiken.

Opeens krijgt oom Frits pretlichtjes in zijn ogen en heeft hij een vette glimlach op zijn gezicht.

‘Wat heb jij nou?’ wil tante Coby weten.

‘Ik heb een idee!’ Triomfantelijk haalt oom Frits zijn mobiel tevoorschijn.

Digital art beginner: Lore Olympus Fan Art
A long time ago I made a first attempt at digital art. That was then just with my computer mouse drawn on paint and was rather basic and not really impressive, as you can see below. My first attempt at (some kind of) digital drawing. - Read more After this, I have long left the idea of digitally drawing. I had no idea which program I should use or what material I should buy. The way I saw it, it seemed like you needed very expensive software and expensive material to get a bit of a good result. Meanwhile, I know this isn't true.. In the end, your skill is the most important thing, which I (still?) not quite have, but the point is that the equipment must have some basic things, but beyond that it's just extras. Extras that probably can help, but if you just do it as a hobby for fun, those aren't really worth the money in my opinion. Meanwhile, I have practiced a little more with digital drawing, meanwhile with a sign tablet in hand. And I'd like to share one of my drawings with you. It's about Fan Art based on Lore Olympus, a comic that you can read on Webtoon. In the comic you follow the story of Hades and Persephone, but with a more modern twist. Many difficult but important topics are also addressed. I'm already a big fan! Hopefully you'll find my first attempt at Fan Art a little pleasant to watch!

How green can green be?
Spring has a bit of a slow start. It remains quite cold, even during the day, and although the sun occasionally shines exuberant, there is always that cold wind. The advantage ? Spring is greener than ever in my region. That's why a photo round with the theme: Fifty shades of... green ! In the morning the pool lies peacefully. Only the flute concert of the many birds break through the sound of the rustling of the wind in the trees. A rare croak complements the music. It's early May and I have a day off. In the middle of the working week. I feel like such a lucky guy. Although they predicted rain and clouds, a spring sun shines, although it is a little veiled. No wandering walkers, no crying and running children, just nature... and I. I feel completely in my element. A little further I can go into the forest. Embrace the trees and protect me. There are open grasslands, reed collars, meadows... Locks, Shrubs and Trees. Fifty shades. My surroundings, my flat land.. All pictures are taken on the territory of the province of West Flanders, where I live. All on the territory of Woumen, Diksmuide, 15 minutes' drive from where I live. #photography #nature #naturephotography #woumen #diksmuide #blancard #naturereserve #verdant
