  • I started this site using a Nikon D3300 in 2014, my first DSLR.
    The oldest pictures are taken with the 18-105 Nikon kitt lens.

    In 2016 I purchased a Nikon 70-300 VR f/4,5 – 5,6G AF-S lens and a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 G lens.

    In juen 2017 I decided is was time to upgrade to a better camera, at first I had the new D7500 in mind,
    but when Nikon did a cashback action I went for the D500 .

    In june 2018 I sold the D500 because we where expecting a baby and a smaller camera would be much more usefull.
    I picked a Fujifilm X-T20 camera, with 2 lenses, the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 LM and a 18-55mm R LM OIS

    In july 2021 I sold the Fujfilm because I missed shooting with a ‘bigger’ camera.
    I didn’t liked the ‘smaller system camera’-feel and grip so I traded in the X-T20 for a new Nikon D7500.
    Combined with a Nikon DX AF-P 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3G ED VR and a SIGMA 17-50MM F/2.8 DC EX HSM OS.
    So I’m kinda back where I wanted to be in 2017 🙂

  • Mint is our male Pomeranian dog, born 15 august 2012.
    He’s our first dog and we adore him.
    He goes to doggy-school, is good in agility and fairly obedient.
    He loves to bark at everything.
    If he likes you, he’s a cuddle buddy.

  • Pictures of our cat Poes.
    She’s almost 11 years old now.
    We got here from an animal shelter. She was just a very young kitten abandoned there.
    Here actual name is Isis, named after the Egyptian goddess. But she only responds when you call here Poes (dutch for cat)

  • When we moved to our new home, we had some spare room in the garden for a chicken coop.

    Our Silkie Chickens are named:
    Snow (white chick nr1)
    White (white chick nr2)
    Nugget (the gold brown)
    Grey (a grey chick)
