Being a Tourist in my Hometown

Eindelijk weer tijd gehad om foto's te maken! Afgelopen weer was druk en hectisch, maar nadat gisteravond een hele last van mijn schouders viel, wilde ik even met mijn camera de stad in om de kerstversiering te fotograferen.
Er is voor mij nog veel te leren in nachtfotografie en ik kan niet wachten om hier meer mee te oefenen zodra ik een statief heb! (Hiervoor moet ik Sinterklaas nog even lief aankijken).
Ik kan jullie allemaal aanraden om (met of zonder camera) een toerist te spelen in je eigen stad. Er is zoveel meer te zien dan alleen de lokale H&M! Vandaag staat dit niet op de foto, maar dat zou ik wel altijd nog eens willen doen.

I've finally had time to take pictures again! Last week I was very busy, but yesterday I just wanted to grab my camera and take pictures of the Christmas decorations in my hometown.
I have so much more to learn with night photography and I can't wait to experiment more once I have a tripod for my camera!
I can recommend you all to play tourist in your own hometown (with or without a camera). There is so much more to see than just your local H&M! Today this is not on the pictures, but I'd love to do this one day.

Eigenlijk ben ik niet eens zo'n hele grote fan van nachtfotografie, puur omdat ik het zo lastig vind! ;)

Have you ever been a tourist in your own hometown?

  1. Yes, I used to live in a big city. So whenever we had visitors, we went sight-seeing. It was quite interesting because we wouldn´t have done it other wise. So I agree, being a tourist in your home town makes you appreciate its beauty even more :)

    1. So true! When I was really young we had a tour in my hometown about all the historical spots. I seriously forgot almost all of them and that's such a shame because my hometown has so much history!

  10. Great photos! I just moved to the NYC area--- so obviously there has been so much for me to do and see! I am a tourist practically everyday!
    I love photography too! I try to work on my skills every chance I get!
    I saw that you mentioned that you have a tripod. I would recommend that you buy a monopod as well. I spoke about it here: https://classiccosmopolite.wordpress.com/2014/10/23/my-monopod-manifesto/a
    I think you would love it!
