Hi, my name is Mek. I live in The Netherlands, Rotterdam to be precise, and I think it's fun looking at the world with a different view for some time!

Capturing dramatic effects using my iPhone-Hipstamatic-app gives me the most satisfaction. Comments on my pictures being nicely edited are therefore not entirely justified :-) Most captures are auto-edited by the software. Then again, choice of subject and framing is all mine!

I like objects mostly. In the pictures that is. Thanks to 365 I already know a lot more about many of the subjects photographed in my album. If not stealing your identity Google is your friend!
Of course the project will be a kind of diary. To some extend my everyday life will be exposed and occasionally our 'fratelli gemelli' will turn up in this album too, as well as our other pet companions!

Thanks for taking the time reading this bit about myself. And perhaps in advance for your lovely comments or the follow.

Was gonna update my profile. Don't think I have too. It's still topical. There is a new album though: re-do. Can be anything from a new photo of the same subject to a completely different shot from the same day. And sometimes it will be a retake from a fellow 365'er. There will always be a link to the counterpart so you will see for yourself.

New album added. Why not. The re-do album was for un-posted shots from last year but I find myself re-doing the originals instead! Since I cannot get rid of my old second best pictures I'll be dropping them here.

September 2013
The new albums are long gone. Still going strong on the daily upload though. 365 is supposed to learn you a lot about photography so you can be a better photographer in time. Looking back at my first year I noticed the quality hasn't become much better. Haha. I learned it's not about taking better picture at all. It's not the beauty of the pictures. It's not about the PP. It's not about comments either. It's about a story. My story. That's what I think I learned these past two and a half year... So that's what my pictures are all about now.

January 2014
And still nailing down everyday life. Happily it goes without saying, and I do not really have to think about it. The commuter route is now pretty much covered and you will find a lot more incomprehensible details in my album. The first year has been collected in a real album and is almost ready for production now (update: see http://www.blurb.com/b/5147209-366 ). The number of active followers still posting has been reduced to nearly zero. So, no stress about comments and commenting anymore.

March 2015
Time for a little update although I doubt it will ever be read. No matter. I've been away for 3 months but the snapping has continued tirelessly and the main album is up-to-date again. A relief for the 'outside-followers' who undoubtedly are in the majority at the moment. I cannot stop now. I must go on. The nothingness around me just must be captured.

April 2015
I contributed to Project-X on Saturdays. The profile is long gone now.

September 2015
Hipstamatic delivered a new major update. I now have some control over the final results. Also I'm using a new phone with better camera for two months now. I doubt if you see the difference though. ProjectX is a real good focus point for my actual editing skills. Go have a look.

It's just about a year after I stopped posting. I'm especially very sorry for my fellow companions at ProjectX. I couldn't get it done anymore. Unlike other moments of despare I didn't take much photo's during the six-month absence. Somehow I came back and I have now desided to fill all the gaps of last year in the coming period. Perhaps I will even renew my ace membership. Who knows.

March 26, 2019
I need to get hold of a new camera. I'm struggling to get pictures out there because the results are crap...

July 8, 2021
A lot happend in the past 2 years since March 2019. I turned 50, Covid became part of our lives, vaccins have been developed and I posted photo no. 5000 a few weeks ago. It's year 10 now. 365 became 3650! I guess you guys are still a part of my everyday life even though there's not much commenting going on from my side. Sorry about that.
There are a few collection I made since the beginning without mentioning them before.
