Photographer's Note

Mayhem @ the Arboretrum

On the second day, the third day for the people who arrived on Friday, the participants of the TE Meeting in Rotterdam, visited the Arboretrum Trompenburg. There was of course a lot of shooting, nice banter and beers in the tea-garden. A few members took it upon themselves to put some additional fun in the photography of the day and wandered of, shooting through holes, being stealthy or just pointing big lenses at people from very unusual positions and angles. Sometimes provoking questions and remarks, but always with a smile. This is one of the results: two gentlemen admiring the rhododendrons.

Thanx for coming to Rotterdam, folks and being such delightful guests!

This one is for Henk, the master of framing without looking through the viewfinder.
