Interesting series. What I'd personally like to see though, is more shots from shorter focal lengths, to give a more intimate feeling to the shots.

Good luck with lasting though a whole year

Getting better and better, Rense. I really like the morning mail and the shot of your neighbour cleaning his car. They really have stories to tell and the car-washer has great energy and movement. I agree with pop4; if you can do it without getting your head kicked in, try shoving your camera right up someon'es nose (politely, of course!). If you explain what you're doing and offer to email them a copy, you'll probably find most people will accomodate you. Go to it, my friend.

Here one more intimate image, of my colleques at the institute. Not so much of an action photo (do you see his right middle finger move however ), but that's our work.....

#25 Founding

This man was working half way to the top of a large ground drill, which is used to make foundations of buildings. What he did exactely remained totally obscure to me... I captured him at the moment he was shouting to the drill driver....

#27 Cutting asphalt

I know the background is somewhat distracting in this one... The man is cutting the street asphalt with an diamont saw.

Some really top shots there Rense. I particularly like your B&W conversions. They seem to suit work environments very well, Well done.

I will happily second the Family of Man collection. It was one of the first photography collections I was privileged to own. Very inspiring, and now I will have to see if I still have it.

BTW, have you come across the catalogue to the Family of Man exhibition from the 1950s? You might find this and some of Magnum's publications inspiring for your project. You might be able to get hold of them through your library or a rare/fine bookshop. Well worth a look for picking up ideas on photographing ordinary people in ordinary settings. Also, check out Magnum's website: Redirection.

Bruce, thank you for your kind words!
Speedoo (and, delayed, Wombat): I'm not familiar with the mentioned catalogue, but I will try to find one somewhere.

Redpigeons, thank you! I still do love it too, but, as someone said as a reaction on my 25th one: you have to go only 340....
