I didn’t video this b/c it would have been a long video to go through the cycle, but here you see most of the phases of this interesting piece.
We resume photos from my wintry walk to enjoy the light festival, this time with some videos if your bandwidth is sufficient. 🙂 There really was a bit of a party atmosphere, with both the steady stream of pedestrians, adults and kids, couples on dates and sad singles like me – along with the boats, one of which you do see passing directly through the animated light sculpture above. Look closely and you’ll see kayakers and paddleboarders out as well, in these or future photos.
Hi everyone – we’re back :-). We’ll kick off with more winter light photos, whether light as art and human ingenuity, or light as those rare blessed moments when the sun manages to cut through these cloudy, flat grey days here along the North Sea coast. You’ve seen these butterflies before, when I noticed them on a dawn bike to the office, shortly after the Amsterdam Light Festival opened for this year’s covid-affected version.
Having waited in hopes that some friend might want to walk the route with me, finally last Saturday I bought my online map and covered about 75% of these art installations on foot during a bloody cold walk for which I stupidly went under-dressed. Unlike many of the photographers I saw, I don’t have a tripod or a real camera…so pardon the poor quality. I hope the enjoyment I and the many other viewers clearly felt walking this route and taking in the many artistic celebrations of light will shine through nonetheless.
