I can’t yet get enough from the annual “living statues festival” in the tiny city of Lommel in Belgium. Tiny as it is, somewhere in the middle of nowhere, artists from all over the world do their performance here. World first prize winners among them.

This time I was focussed on portraits in Black&White, trying to catch some of the artists concentrating expressions. By way of contrast to these somewhat serious portraits, I added some funny festival street pictures in colour. Emotion and fun, it’s all there in this festival in the month of june.

For photography the Fuji XE2 is used, with the zoomlenses 55-200/3.5-4.8 for portraiture and the 18-55/2.8-4.0 for street shots. Being there in late evening under a very clouded sky, ISO was set between 400 and 1000.

medieval cathedral statues

A once in a lifetime opportunity got me outside on the high roof of the St. John’s cathedral in Den Bosch (The Netherlands).
