Handicapped Sign

One day while at elementary school, Da Beat entered the classroom and was stopped by some non-specific classmate. Non-specific as in neither specifically bully, nor specifically victim. This person was pretending to give everyone entering the classroom a rabies shot. So Da Beat, like a f***ing meek sheep, just went along with the gig. Da Beat thinks that’s one of those problems with schools: they … Continue reading Handicapped Sign


As mentioned previously, Da Beat likes the idea of a sustainable future. Part of that future is, without doubt, hydrogen. Da Beat likes hydrogen. He likes hydrogen a lot. He likes hydrogen because it epitomises minimalism. It’s the smalles atom possible, and yet, precisely because of its minimal make up, it packs such extreme potential. And that of course is exactly what minimalism in visual … Continue reading Hydrogen


The sign reads “For Sale”. Da Beat happens to think this kind of represents the completely muddled, even — dare he say it? — hopeless situation that the Brexit stalemate really is, and with that the dire state that an utterly ineffective EU finds itself in. Everything is boxed-in, both mentally as well as physically, almost like imprisonment, and the mix of cultures, even within … Continue reading Brexit

Da Beat has had a passing interest in alternative energy. He likes the idea of sustainable resources. We do have an obligation to implement these new technologies, not necessarily because of environmental concerns, but because we owe it to our intellect and intelligence. It’s the smart thing to do. He’s therefore saddened by what he sees happening in the new energy revolution. Clearly, we need … Continue reading A picture a day… #13

An uneventful day. Life is all about contrasts, and therefore, Da Beat firmly believes that solid photography is also all about contrasts. Contrasts in light and color, but also, perhaps more importantly, contrasts in content. A solid narrative is obtained when depicting contrasts, and the best shots are those that manage contrasts in both form and content. This is not one of those shots, but … Continue reading A picture a day… #12

Da Beat goes Street: Rembrandt

This site is subtitled Da Beat goes Street, because every now and then, Da Beat does streetphotography. He realises this is a laden, almost controversial term, therefore he will share his personal idea about the term. It should merely be taken as an indication of how he will apply the label on this site. Not as a genre definition. First of all, streetphotography should be … Continue reading Da Beat goes Street: Rembrandt

More Boxification

It’s odd with Da Beat’s mindset and boxification. Clearly, boxification is about the change in the industrial landscape to highly functional but extremely unappetising boxes. This obviously suggests that wider views need to be captured in order to depict the actual landscape, and not singular units that usually result in almost abstract studies. Yet somehow currently in its infant state, this project seems to trigger … Continue reading More Boxification

Really, Da Beat could seriously do these all day long. Although, here he was perhaps a little quick on the draw. Passing the building at the side, he thought it was just another box, but it ain’t so. It’s a large box with a curved/waved front. He didn’t have time for the curved front, nor is he sure when the light is right either being … Continue reading A picture a day… #6
