Last night I left my friend’s house just before the curfew of 9 pm, I had 15 mins to cycle from her quarter to mine. Easy, it’s not that far.
BUT! On my way to my parked bike I came across this poster: A call for entries for next year’s Amsterdam Light Festival: Let us know what you liked best and would like to see again next year. OK? Light art? Need I pay attention to light art? What light art exactly, I wondered. Ok, now I was interested, is there any light art, that I haven’t noticed? So I got my phone out, ready to take some pictures, while driving by – as there wasn’t much time, suddenly!
I took some snaps of contenders…
But one I really like – and would be my favorite: Close to home I passed the Tropenmuseum, a large building, partly lit, but with some dark corners as well. Pedaling my bike in a hurry (it was 9 o’clock now) from the corner of my eye I felt someone looking at me. I turned my head and – what was that??
I went back to take the picture.
Here can see the real works of art from the Amsterdam Light Festival – and YOU can vote which is best.

and thank you for stopping by, taking an interest in my blog.
I am the 'relentless hunter and
gatherer of soothing beauty, great and small' behind these pages, which for now means: Here you find the stuff that makes me think, that inspires me, that I envy and am passionate about.
Since 2013 I have written posts about many randomly chosen
topics and - being an obsessed
observer - I now log related notes and updates under "PS".
Enjoy your visit!
