Week 08: Piano and trains

Filed under: — Administrator @ 11:58

Week 8 was a bit slow, photographically speaking. But this is the challenge of the PAW: to come up with something to show, even in a slow week–even if it means photographing shopping carts outside a supermarket!


The alternates

My children are forced to take piano lessons. Usually my wife takes them to the teacher, but this week I had to do it and so of course I availed myself of the photo opportunities. In the first picture, the teacher is pointing out something in the notes to my daughter; in the second, he has to show her how to play the relevant notes.

My son has gone to ski in Val d’Isere with friends for the week. Besides financing the whole thing, I had to bring him and a couple of his friends to Amsterdam Central station to catch a train to Bourg St. Maurice at 5.36 a.m. on Saturday morning. Here are the boys, goofing around a bit before getting into the train:

And now the train is on its away:

The train station is not the world’s most attractive place at 6 a.m. on a Saturday:

The final alternate is from Saturday afternoon in Almere. One sometimes hears that a football game has been cancelled because of a “waterlogged pitch.” Well, here is one such very waterlogged neighbourhood football field in one of the less desireable parts of town:

  1. Dear Nathan:
    I have always been a crazy parent- somehow, your pictures conjure up feelings I had when sending my kids off someplace on a holiday. The sadness at any small goodbye even when they are having a good time, comes through to me- in these images. (The personality results of the children of Holocaust survivors). The images are very effective. Bests: Roger
