My first photo assignment as a mom and I chose Monomyth as subject, Paradiso as venue. The release show of their third album EXO, the final part of an epic trilogy, took me on a trip I was longing to take for some time. Forgetting my new status, my troubles, my thoughts. Enjoying the gentle trance of Monomyth's kraut-, (outer)space-, and stonerrock. The pictures have now been added to the band's album.
My life changed, on 30 November 2015, when I gave birth to our beautiful daughter Inlé Frith. Named after the Lapine terms for the moon and the sun in Watership Down. Now she is 2 months, and challenging me to take the best pictures of all her new and funny facial expressions. These are the last weeks of my maternity leave, and I am preparing for an active year in photography and palaeontology. So keep following my blog for old and new photography challenges to be published.
From 10 - 13 September 2015, I co-organised, as a Werkgroep Pleistocene Zoogdieren board member, and photographed the 21st International Cave Bear Symposium, held at Faculty of Archaeology - Leiden University, Museum Historyland and Natural History Museum Rotterdam (Netherlands). Almost 100 participants from all over the world gathered to present and discuss new research on fossils from cave bears and other large predators. The programme also included a field trip to those fishermen who find Pleistocene fossils in their fishing nets, and the beach to do some fossil searching ourselves.

It has been a while, but from 25 until 30 March this year I visited Budapest for the first time. The main goal of the trip was a project meeting for Discover Peace in Europe. This EU funded project developed peace trails in 7 European cities, focussing on less known peace historical sites. During my time here, I discovered the beautiful city of Budapest.

I also brought a lomo camera with me one this trip and took some analogue pictures. Check my lomography page for the result.
18 March, I went to Hague venue Paard van Troje to photograph Fiction Plane (yes, that band in which Sting's son sings and plays bass). Supporting them on this European tour are the Hague boys from Atlantic Attraction. Both indie rock bands surprised the audience with some solid good songs with intense guitar play.

Hague post-/kraut-/spacerockers Monomyth played the new Gebr. de Nobel venue in Leiden last Thursday, 12 February. It was chummy, but not sold out at the small stage. The band clearly enjoyed their tight show as much as the audience did. The photo report was published here.
