Winter portraits by Jerry ZandwijkFebruary 14, 2012
Well, we can't say here in the Netherlands that it isn't a severe winter! Our land was covered with white snow the past few weeks, the ditches and lakes were frozen, and many little children were skating on ice for the very first time. My generation has never been able to skate on nature ice; the winters were just not strong enough! I am brave enough to tell you that I have never in my life skated on ice. I am at the age now that I won't even try it! I am too afraid to slip under the ice! Therefore, I am not at all a winter person. My wardrobe is almost never winter-steady with an exception for some garments here and there. Ofcourse, I love to sit inside with a blanket on the couch; warm at the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa and a book, watching snow fall down. Like a fairytale! But then, when you have to walk your dog at some certain points of the day - on the only kind of shoes you own: heels - that fairytale falls to pieces soon enough! And I look quite the joke.
