The new kids on the block are fully digital and move between hardware without any problems. Very interesting to see as I am very often still in the middle of old and new media where by far not everything is digital....The other observation is that the Nintendo DS is a fantastic category killer. Even though other kit such as PSP's, PS3 and iMac's are around, they are glued to their little screens... the latest big hit is the DS version of Guitar Hero on tour...

There are always nice things to do and to follow in the Vondelpark. In the open air theater today we had some singalong songs from Ricky and Leo. Apparently the theater is under threat of closure, which would be a pity...

I have put some of the pictures from my TPW Toscane workshop with Antonin Kratochvil online here at Flickr. Like in the good analog days, it is better to have some reflection time between shooting and seeing the end product. Looking back at a wonderful week, brings lots of great reflections!
