Just returned from an amazing holiday to Java and Bali. A complete different part of the world and yet still very recognizable given the partly joint history and lots of Indonesian influences in Dutch society. I love the art and craft skills Indonesians posses in creating beautiful materials and products. The full snapshot set from the V-Lux20 can be found here. I took my trusted MP and some containers of Porta VC400 and TX400 but those pictures will take some more time to be seen as those need to be developed... I am very curious how those will appear in the end...

Next to all the good news from football, nice weather, biking and business, there was also very sad news. Roy Avni, DJ at KinkFM and the man behind Electronation, passed away yesterday. We wish his friends, family, colleagues and listeners all the strength they need in these difficult days...
