" ...ONLY IN ART DOES IT STILL HAPPEN THAT A MAN WHO IS CONSUMED BY DESIRES PERFORMS SOMETHING RESEMBLING THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THOSE DESIRES AND THAT WHAT HE DOES IN PLAY PRODUCES EMOTIONAL EFFECTS - THANKS TO ARTISTIC ILLUSION - JUST AS THOUGH IT WERE SOMETHING REAL. PEOPLE SPEAK WITH JUSTICE OF THE "MAGIC OF ART" AND COMPARE ARTISTS TO MAGICIANS. ..."

Roadwork deep in the forest


Roadwork deep in the forest, originally uploaded by B℮n.


In 1593 William Shakespeare wrote in Taming of the Shrew, Katerina tells off a gentleman to go jogging till his boots go green. The terms to jog and jogging, as a form of exercise, originated in England in the mid seventeenth century. In the United States jogging was also called "roadwork" when athletes in training, such as boxers, customarily ran several miles each day as part of their conditioning. In New Zealand during the 1960s or 1970s the word roadwork was mostly supplanted by the word "jogging" The idea of jogging as an organised activity was mooted in a sports page article in the New Zealand Herald in February 1962, which told of a group of former athletes and fitness enthusiasts who would meet once a week to run for "fitness and sociability". Since they would be jogging, the newspaper suggested that the club "may be called the Auckland Joggers Club"—which is thought to be the first use of the noun "jogger".

Photo of a jogger running in the Stulp at the end of day. The sun is shining his last rays of the day. The Stulp is a nature area in Soest, the Netherlands. I'm not a jogging type I do prefer walking.

Hardlopen kan men bijna bij elk weertype doen. Sommige lopers stellen zich tot doel gewoon lekker te blijven lopen. Anderen proberen hun prestaties te verbeteren door steeds snellere tijden neer te zetten op bijvoorbeeld de 5 km. Weer anderen trainen verder voor bijvoorbeeld de 10km, 10 mijl, halve marathon of natuurlijk de hele marathon. Veel hardlopers zeggen dat, wanneer je eenmaal de smaak van het hardlopen te pakken hebt, het een bezigheid is waar men niet meer zonder wil. Dit is niet vreemd als men zich bedenkt dat bij het lopen endorfines worden afgegeven aan het bloed. Deze stoffen zorgen ervoor dat je je goed voelt. Zelf hou ik niet zo van jogging, laat mij maar wandelen en genieten van de natuur in de Stulp. De Stulp is een natuurgebiedje tussen Baarn en Lage Vuursche. Het gebied maakte oorspronkelijk deel uit van de bezittingen van de Heer van Drakenburg, schout van Utrecht. Hij werd in 1346 zelfs tot ridder geslagen. Het gebied bestond in eerste instantie uit heidevelden, met hier en daar een verhoging ten behoeve van de jacht. Zo'n verhoging is bijvoorbeeld de Konijnenberg vlakbij Lage Vuursche. In de loop der jaren is de meeste hei door bos verdrongen. Zo gaat dat met heide wanneer de mens niet ingrijpt. De Stulp is heel heuvelachtig. Een gevolg uit de tijd dat het hier nog één grote zandverstuiving was. Die was ontstaan doordat schapen te veel weg graasden en de wind vrij spel kreeg. Staatsbosbeheer heeft de zandverstuiving tot staan gebracht.

But we danced, under wigs and between unfinished walls, through broken promises and around empty cupboards.

A mystical place, Iceland. Shot in June.

This image is shot standing on melting ice over Bræðravatn, Mjóafjarðarheiði. The locals tell me this is never to be done again. The name, Lake of Brothers, comes from two brothers who drowned in the extremely deep and cold water after the ice broke.

Ponemah Bog in Amherst, New Hampshire (Audubon Society land).

I should point out that these plants are known as "bog cotton" (shown in bloom in other pictures in my stream) and here they're sticking up through the frozen surface of the Ponemah Bog pond.
