The title says it all. This is a compilation of pictures worth publishing but not necessarily constituting a coherent series. The only thing in common is that here are pictures from people I like.
Pictures taken in the drawing class.
Feike Boschma is a remarkable man. He is over 80 years old and still performs (sometimes) with his puppet show. Only his show is meant for adults. He has no theatre proper, a bench will do or simply a chair or just nothing. He makes all puppets himself out of simple material and most is left to the immagination: a stick and a straw hat will stand for a man. My sister in law knows Feike very well and they had a joint performance in late 2008 in Amsterdam. Feike with a puppet show and my sister in law integrated her peintings in the show. My brother was responsible for the lighting and the music. I made the pictures.
We have lived in Malaysia between 1985 and 1991 and loved it. I often said that Malaysia was the next best place after paradise. After 1991 we returned about once per year and sometimes more often for a visit and we plan to stay for longer periods soon. Most people will take pictures from nice surroundings and impressive structures. I prefer to show the simple dayly life.
