    "Capturing images gives us a certain power to each capture, to freeze time and preserve moments by the focus of the lenses that will never be repeated in the same way.

    "Generally, I'll skip over black n whites, perhaps its wired into my way of thinking or whatever..... I almost put the delete on your stuff, but then curiosity got the best of me, so I checked out your photo stream. Thanks, thank you for opening up my mind to black and white photography. Your photos are a work of true art and I thoroughly enjoyed looking at them. I will put you on my follow list, not just because I'm in a reciprocating mood, no,...............It is because some of your works are truly my favorites now."

    "Koen, this work is fantastic! There isn't a piece here that I wouldn't be proud to hang on my wall, with the exception of the Liverpool Street Station. That isn't because of the photo, I just have a bad memory of taking a train out of there back in the later 80's when it was under repair. They put us on a train after delaying us for about an hour. I'm sure they knew that train wasn't going anywhere as they were working on the overhead wires. An hour later they put us all on another train already full. We ended up stading outside the loo (SP?) shoulder to shoulder for 4 hours. So, I'm sure you understand why that image makes me SHUTTER (no pun intended) :)"
