Boring Street

One of the more interesting Internet initiatives is Boring Street  where everyday street photos from all over this planet prove to be far from boring.

Have a look at my Boring Street profile here.

kogal girls in Tokyo, Shinjuku

Like almost everybody else at, I was more interested in posting my own photos and getting hits than that I spent time enjoying photos posted by fellow photographers. I couldn't get anybody to look at my photos until I posted the above photo of some kogals and in the few weeks this photo has been up, it has already generated more hits than all of the 199 other photos combined. ^_^;; On, on the other hand, I get about 2000 hits a week but then again, this photo has been up there for a couple of years now. I'm not really sure what conclusion to draw. ^_^.
Nowadays I prefer to post at and enjoy the often to the point feedback.

Cathedral in Troyes

Having lived in the UK for a couple of years now, I still find it a bit claustrophobic that you have to reserve ferries, trains or planes to get to and from the "continent" as the Brits call it. The Brits probably don't even think about it, but if I were living in Holland or so and returning from a holiday in the South of France, I would just push through and return home in the evening or early night, or a day early if the weather were bad. But with a ferry reservation to meet, it is a different story. This bring me to Troyes; we had occasionally seen a GB car on the campings south, but the Camping Municipal in Troyes was packed with the English and all returning home. We had stayed in Troyes before and loved the city and on our way back I had picked Troyes because it was a mere four or five hours drive from Calais. Funny that so many had come to the same conclusion ^_^
