Week 45

This week was very special. On Saturday we held our yearly autumn fancy fair at the Rudolf Steiner school. Some of you might know this as a Waldorf school. My kids went to this school and my wife still works there.

I used to be in the organising committee of this fancy fair. But now that my youngest has left the school I was able to do my own activity. All revenues go to the school.

I set up a small photo studio. Borrowed an epson picturemate and offered portraits to take home right away. The picture mate performed flawless. Very good colours, picture in 20 seconds. I sold 36 portraits in 4 hours. I used my canon 20d with the Tokina 50-135/2.8. This lens is amazing.

Here are a few of the best portraits.

Ria and her adopted son. She is one of the most courageous women I Know

Iris. She went to the same school, had the same teachers as my daughters, babysitter of my daughters, dated the son of our neighbours. This is a portrait with her Mother Aukje.

We have the same puppet theatre at the fancy fair now for already 7 years. This is one of the puppet players with his grandson.
