Spring in the Netherlands means one thing – a visit to Lisse!
Lisse is a town in the Netherlands and is home to Keukenhof, also known as ‘The Garden of Europe’. Keukenhof is one of the largest flower gardens in the world, with roughly seven million flower bulbs planted there annually. Although it is open year-round for festivals and private events, it’s only open to the public for eight weeks in spring from mid-March to mid-May.
So, last weekend, my friend Emmie and I decided to spend an afternoon there.
I was deleting old pictures from my camera the other day, when I came across this picture that I'd taken a while ago. Even though I hadn't noticed it before, it stood out to me this time round. For the first time I noticed how - without meaning to - I'd managed to capture everything in the frame out of focus except the rear-view mirror.
As I was admiring my unintentional photography skills, I couldn't help but wonder why I had never noticed that about the picture when I looked at it before - or rather why I was only noticing it now. I suspected that it had something to do with something that had been recently weighing heavily on my mind...
