 Great video on how the school system is way behind all other inventions and new technology created since the industrial revolution. Well done, Prince Ea. In the Netherlands we also struggle to teach boys, as there are no male teachers anymore, nor do we allow learning by doing. I hope the future will changesoon by creating new ways of learning.

There was a Dutch tv show about Picasso on last month and I accidently stumbled upon the art contest Krabbé zoekt Picasso. I wanted to enter, but never finished the above photo collage in time. 

Anyway, this is my (unfinished) try.

#Eyespiration: backlight through bride's veil 
I am explaining how to See the Light coming through the bride's veil (top photo). Bottom photo shows a quick phone pic of the situation. The backlight is so beautiful, creating a light silhouette of the bride - white wedding dress and veil work very well.

I was leading a writers inspiration walk at the San Francisco Writers Conference, when we encounterd this wedding couple on the steps of St. Grace Catherdral on top of Nob Hill. With an open mind and perception you can really See the Beauty of the World.

#Eyespiration is mindfulness with your camera, using even phones to capture the beauty of the world around us. You can join my photo walks all over the world, or book me for private sessions and masterclasses.
