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

Galleries

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.

Portfolio

Recently I added some Portfolios too.

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

Security

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.

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!

Happy New Year

I might be a little bit too late with my best wishes but it’s better late than never.
So here you go, Happy New Year!!

2022 passed by so extremely fast that I really have to sit down and think about what happened last year.
Feeling the same way?

Stormy and difficult year

For me, it was a very stormy and difficult year as well.
My brother passed away as you might have read in this post.
It was June 5th 2022.
Although he did not see it that way, he lost a battle he never could have won.

The website

Obviously, as you could read in my last post, I’d need to build up my website again. That’s what happened for sure!
It totally crashed and I still don’t know why.
On the other hand, it gives me the opportunity to start a new clean site in a bit different way.

What’s next?

First of all, I have a few days off this week. A good start of a Happy New Year, right?
Obviously restoring my online galleries and getting one special post back online.
I’d post that after the passing away of my brother last year.

After that, it’s time to get back to work and of course, grab my camera again.
So stay tuned and please follow me on my social media accounts!

On the left bottom of the menu, you’ll find the links to all of them.
One of them is Facebook.

Take care and again, Happy New Year and may all your wishes come through.

A new beginning

A new beginning

Well, maybe you noticed, maybe you didn’t but I’ve been out of order for a while.
It was time for a new beginning

For some reason, my site crashed and I was not able to post any photos or posts.
Together with my hosting provider, we tried everything and we still don’t know what happened the last few weeks.
I noticed they had quite some tickets going on. Due to all the hacker news lately, I guess it had something to do with that.
But they did an awesome job! Very happy with them.

A fresh start for my website

Anyways, it gave me the opportunity to set things straight and start over with the website.
Creating the Galleries and Portfolio in a new way.
Especially the naming of the photos, which actually was a mess. Nothing wrong with a new beginning.

A new beginning

The photo above was one of the photos which had to be published in December.
Unfortunately, this didn’t happen.

But keep an eye on my site again. I’m back online.
Galleries and Portfolio and what else will follow soon.

Posting on social media

As soon as possible I’ll start posting again on my social media platforms.
That has been my goal for the last 4 years and I like to continue doing so.

Holliday greetings

For now, I wish all of you happy holidays and an amazing 2023.
Make these days worth sharing with your friends and family.

You all take care!!

never forever a goodbye

This is a repost of a sad moment in 2022, the passing away of my brother Johan Sjoers.
The original post was published on July 22nd 2022.

never, forever, a goodbye

Never forever a goodbye,

Today it’s July 22nd. Your birthday.

We’ll celebrate this day, the day of your 53rd birthday.

You’re no longer with us. A few weeks ago we had to let you go. In the morning I’ll eat sunray.

I want to make the most of the day.

Giving, without wanting anything in return.

To live, because I’m not afraid.

“I have taken it, accepted it and made the most out of it.”

The disease

June 5th, 2022

We did visit you the day before in the afternoon. I helped you to get back in bed, upstairs, even though there was a bed in the living room.

You were fighting yourself, keeping control of everything. As always.

3 years ago you were diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

Boom….. The world is upside down for you and us.

Accordingly, surgery, chemotherapy, and a series of radiation treatments follow.

After a while, all seemed ok. Finally, recovery and picking up life again and the joy.

But no, fate decreed otherwise.

You felt it coming from afar. Something wasn’t right.

Again, visiting the hospitals, looking for solutions.

Surgery on the liver. Unfortunately, the disease had already spread too far.

No more options, other than chemotherapy and or radiation treatments.

You decided to go for quality instead of being sick of a treatment.

For another year and a half, You were with us.

You did everything that was possible, together with your family, children, grandchildren and friends.

Always stayed positive.

We have also learned a lot from that attitude ourselves.

Amazing how strong you have been.

It’s Sunday evening, the 5th of June when the phone rings.

We were getting ready for bed in our caravan.

It was 21.40 hrs.

The end

You died peacefully, surrounded by your dear girlfriend, your children, Twirre the dog, Tibbe and Jeske, the cats.

Due to your disease, you have been so tired the last few weeks.

As your big brother, and when I hugged you for the first time ever, you told me.

Your big brother who was always so far away.

Over the past year and a half, we have caught up with time.

Always too little time but intense moments when we were together.

Finally, you were able to let go.

It’s all right, little big man.

L’ultimo re lives on and will always have you in his heart.

You’ll not be forgotten. Never, forever, a goodbye.

I love you. I always have and always will.

I’ll see you on the other side.

⚔️
