Slowing down on my daily photo posts

Slowing down on my daily photo posts.

In a world where everything seems to be moving at a rapid pace, I have decided to take a step back and slow down on my daily photo posts. As a passionate photographer, capturing moments has always been a joyful pursuit for me. However, recently, I have come to realize that in my quest to share the beauty of the world with others, I have neglected to fully immerse myself in the experiences that lie beyond the lens. So, with a cheerful heart, I have made the decision to embrace a new rhythm and savour each photographic adventure to its fullest.

Yes, I’m slowing down on my daily posts

Gone are the days of hastily snapping a photo just for the sake of meeting a self-imposed deadline. I have come to appreciate that photography is not just about the end result, but also about the journey that unfolds before me. By slowing down on my daily posts, I now have the opportunity to truly connect with my surroundings and find beauty in the simplest of moments.
I think this is important. In my last post, I’d welcome the summer. It’s finally here but staying behind the laptop, scheduling the posting of photos, is not showing the world around you.

I had a beautiful week in Drenthe last week with a photoshoot of bee-eaters and more birdies

Last week, I embarked on a captivating adventure to Drenthe, where I was greeted by the enchanting world of bee-eaters and other magnificent bird species. The vibrant colours of these feathered creatures, harmonizing with the lush green backdrop, were truly a sight to behold. With each click of my camera, I not only captured their exquisite beauty but also felt a profound sense of gratitude for being able to witness these magical beings in their natural habitat.
It was also amazing to see the Waxwing, Penduline Tit, Wryneck, Red-fronted Serin and the Beach lark. Just to name some of the species I saw.

Next 2 weeks I’ll have the rest of my Holiday before going back to work

As I scroll through the photos from my recent adventure, I can’t help but feel a sense of excitement for the next two weeks of my holiday. With no work commitments looming over me, I have the luxury of devoting myself entirely to my passion for photography. Whether it’s exploring hidden gems in my local area or venturing further afield, I am eager to let my lens guide me through moments of awe and wonder. These precious weeks offer the perfect opportunity to recharge, reconnect with my creativity, and find inspiration in the world around me.

But, it will not be photography alone.
I planned 2 visits to the cinema and, this will be very exciting for my son, skydiving!

Taking photos is still going strong

Although I may be slowing down in my daily posts, my love for photography remains as strong as ever. In fact, this decision has allowed me to approach each photo shoot with renewed enthusiasm and a fresh perspective. By taking the time to immerse myself in the art of capturing moments fully, I have discovered a whole new level of joy and fulfilment. Whether it’s the gentle rays of daylight filtering through the trees or the candid smiles of strangers, I am reminded that life’s most extraordinary moments are often found in the simplest of frames.

Embracing a slower pace in the world of daily photo posts has proven to be a delightful journey of self-discovery. By loving the experiences behind the lens, I have learned to appreciate the beauty that unfolds in front of it. So, as I embark on the next phase of my photographic adventure, I invite you to join me in savouring each moment and finding joy in the art of slowing down. After all, we indeed come alive in these moments of stillness and that’s why I’m slowing down on my daily photo posts. (for now).

Y’all take care and enjoy my site and the galleries!

ShiftyNL Photography getting shape

It takes time. A lot of time.
But slowly is ShiftyNL Photography getting shape again.

I mentioned what happened to my website in this post and this one


I republished quite a lot in the last couple of weeks:

I tried to sort the galleries in the same way I posted them on my social media channels.
Quite a job to do that ;-), but Tumbler has been a good help so far to do so.


Recently I added some Portfolios too.

Please follow the links to have a look or just follow the menu on the left.


Another, still continuing process, is the security of the website.
I mean, you can read a lot of hackers messing up a lot, lately. Really, I do not understand what the fun is in doing that.
Together with my provider and a lot of self-study, I think I’m getting there.
Obviously, it is all part of ShiftyNL Photography getting shape again.

Home, ShiftyNL photography getting shape
What is next?

Correct, keep working on my content and find the time to add new photos.
With regard to my 2023 planning, I have some work to do as well.

Obviously, if there are some, I’ll visit some airshows again.
Aviation is one of my biggest hobbies. Always has been.

Nature, wildlife and their secrets and beautiful creatures are, of course, very good runner-ups.

So, plenty for ShiftyNL Photography getting in shape, again.

And if you find that some photos, not my own, should be removed please send me an email!
