    See 'farmer' On Black

    I took this picture around 1975. An old farmer I used to know in the town of Veere, still wearing the traditional costume of the region. He was quite an important man in his time: landowner, many years serving as a councilman, advisor to many.

      I really love this picture. During WWII, my grandmother and her family helped hide Jewish people in their farmhouse in Heerlen. As thanks, one of the men gave her a portrait that looks just like that, he even is smoking the same kind of pipe.

      You are my new mentor.

      I am absolutely dumbfounded.
      Your Czech and People photos are... some of the best work I've ever seen in my life. And I mean that whole-heartedly.

      And what a cool story by bathorybunny. That was probably a very sacrificial gift, since they had very few photographs of themselves. He was giving her grandmother a weighty part of his own family history. What a treasure.

      I love the countryside. I love your pictures. Thanks for taking my mind off of Katrina for a spell. I was touring your country side instead of watching the horrors in my own country.
