40 years

Today it was the 40th wedding anniversary of my parents. They didn't want to make a big fuzz of this day. They don't like to be in the middle of the attention. So instead of a big party they took us (that's me, Noriko and my sister, brother in law and the kids) to the zoo. We had a lovely day. Here are a few pics of today.

Some new old pics

Had a busy week. I didn't had much time to add some new pics.

Today's pics are also from last year. They were taken during a daytrip with Noriko and my mother in law to the Keukenhof, the famous flower- and bulbpark.

P.s. by clicking on the pics a larger image will be shown.

A fun event

Yesterday Noriko and I went to Amsterdam Pride 2005, the biggest gay event in Holland and one of the three biggest outside events of Amsterdam. It's a series of events with the boatparade through the canals of Amsterdam as one of it's highlights.

It was a great fun, extravagant and colourful event and the atmosphere was very open and friendly. A real plea for tolerance.

Next you can see a few pics that gives an impression of the day and especially the boat parade. Noriko and I took more than 400 pics together. When we still would shoot on film I guess we wouldn't took so many pictures. Here and there I might add some short comment. Here are the pics. At the end of this post I add a link to an online photoalbum where you can check our complete selection.

This is Noriko getting prepared
Noriko one more time
It was not all fun. The first boat at the parade was a protest against the execution of two young gay Iranian teens a few weeks ago (see: link ) and a protest against homophobia in general.

What's next?

Had some trouble yesterday adding images but things seem to work okay today.

Haven't decided yet what kind of pics I want to add, but I guess most of them will be family/friends pics and landscape/sightseeing pics.

I'm going through my photofolders to pick out some nice ones. Later on I probably will post more in a chronological order.

I'm also working to figure things out concerning the lay-out. I'm not completely satisfied yet. So suggestions are always welcome.

Today's two pics were taken last year May 2004 during a walk with Noriko and my mother in law near Leerdam the city where my parents live.
