The biker and the pedestrians.

_MG_2337_1024You know, The Netherlands… That flat country, paradise for bikers… and a nightmare for pedestrians!!!!!

After some days in The Netherlands, my family and myself found that Dutch people have transformed a simple vehicle into a silent weapon of massive destruction!!!!

Those bicycles… without brakes, without ring, to go unnoticed through the streets.

Nobody tells you that, without notice, behind you, two thin wheels are running against you.

You don’t notice anything, maybe a clatter and the whir of a badly oiled chain. But you don’t become aware as the noise of your chat is louder.

Suddenly, you feel a presence at your back. Too late!!!

The front wheel has crossed between your legs, the handlebar is hitting your kidneys and, if you are unlucky and the bicycle is new, the focus is stuck in your…

Unknowingly, you try to find what happened. But the wheel, the handlebar and the light have dissapeared in a sea of killer bikes flooding the streets.

In the image, a group of wrathful pedestrians cornered a cyclist who tried to escape. As far as I know, the cyclist was able to survive the killing gazes of the walkers.

Just a joke to go with the image. In fact, I love to use my bicycle (like Queen). But, it’s real that I felt besieged by the bicycles in The Netherlands. To all my Dutch friends.

Another day…

_MG_7332mar 30 2014_1Another day, another table, another client.

Being alone in the middle of a crowd.

Seeing faces but looking for nobody.

Hearing voices but not having a conversation.

Another client, another table, another day.

Huesca.

_MG_3486One of those small Spanish province capitals where the old and the new meet. A great place to walk and enjoy the city and landscape.

 

Wanderers.

_MG_2064-2All of us are fellows in the travel of life. Some carry a light bag and run from place to place, carefree, looking for new experiences. Others haul a heavy box full of memories and blows while moving slowly trying to find what they lost. Crossing stories, shared benches, lost gazes and silences. Crowded and noisy streets where people cross without noticing these stories, memories, dreams that all of us leave floating in the air.

From the other side.

_MG_2853-2Walls that house those that left us, walls that are only disturbed by the whistle of the wind. Do not forget the memories of those who lie at the other side of these walls.

Ukraine.

I usually post images around my world, taken by me. But this is also our world and there are images that cannot be hidden. I hope that freedom and peace will arrive soon to Ukraine. Please, see the video.
