How the view of my bedroom window ended on the cover of two newspapers today
While having been on the road for this entire weekend photographing assignments, I thought I finally could enjoy the weather in my backyard.
No, Heavy storms passed over Belgium, with hail stones like easter eggs.
This hail didn’t fall over here, but I did see a sky I had never seen.
This sky looked like the sea in a heavy storm. It looked like an upside down painting of the ocean!
I took some snaps,
and while I thought it would be ok to send to our national newspapers through our photographers collective IMAGEDESK, I gave it a try.
The very next morning two national Newspapers had used the same image on their frontpage.
I don’t like assignments about the weather (meaning national) where the photoeditor asks you to do something with snow/rain/hail/storm or whatever.
But this way, just because I wanted to make this picture to help keep this moment, is a nice way to get my work published.
