This week I am trying to be Geebee...

My office is near Amsterdam's Schiphol airport, and from our smoking 
terrace on the roof we have a pretty nice view:

Some people have a pretty strange hobby: like birders, they watch and 
take notes, but what they watch is planes. There are special 
"spotterplaatsen" set up around the perimeter of the airport:

Then we shift gear...last Sunday morning I took a drive around my 
neighbourhood and came across this field with bales of hay:
I converted these two pictures to B&W using the method suggested by B.D. 
I am quite pleased with these, they are certainly better than my 
previous efforts in this area.

Near my house is a group of trees called "The Green Cathedral". It is 
really a piece of concept art, a bunch of trees planted in a church-like 
layout; according to the explanations on the info boards these trees 
only live about 10 years, so in a couple of years this work of art will 
presumably be gone since they were planted in '96:

Finally a view under a bridge less than 1 km from my house. I like this 
spot very much because of the always chaning light:

The complete PAW index is at:
and comments/critique are always welcome and appreciated.
