Playground jump

Of all the pictures I took last week, there is this one that keeps coming back to me. Taken at Bertelmansplein in Amsterdam, van Eyck’s first playground, it shows my little girl jumping on one of the very few original ‘van Eyck’s’ . It has nice composition,  tells a story about van Eyck and about playgrounds today, also my personal angle is there because it is my little girl jumping from post to post. It is reasonably abstract, which I like, and is between perception (‘I’ position) and meta-perception (overview position). Since experimenting with the stuff at Tractie (see experiment no 005) I keep seeing things  ‘from above’ and the pictures I take are taking on that quality, too. Strange!

Will have this one printed fairly large and put in on the wall to see if it stays good.
