City Oasis: Photo Rehab #20

The Clinic – Photo101 Rehab is an event for everyone who loves photography, and wants join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with. All you need to bring is your passion. Just so you know, mine is to shoot portraits and street photography.

Some of you asked me if only photographers can join the Photo Rehab… Professionals, amateurs or just curious about photography, anyone is welcome. What are you waiting for? Check here how it works.


I crossed this small park today called Weteringsplantsoen in the city center of Amsterdam. I always pass there by car or biking.  Today I was walking to a place and decided to go through the park. It was a surprise, as I had never noticed these trees and how nice and peaceful this park is. It is in the middle of the city, like an oasis, where one can walk a bit, or sit and overlook the canal.

I shot these photos with an iPhone 5, and used and editor to make it monochrome on camera+.


Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

      1. Not really ok, but I’m not a complainer 🙂 I spent some days in the hospital but now that I’m home again it’s already a big improvement, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow 🙂 hope you’re fine?

      2. I’m so sorry I missed your reply. I had a tough last week, and blogged mostly scheduled posts. I’m taking time now to reply to comments.
        How’re doing this week? Im happy to hear you aren’t in hospital. I wholeheartdely wish you all the best.
        I’m ok. Just a bit anxious waiting for the diagnosis of someone and hoping it will be fine.
        Take good care of yourself and keep strong.
        Hugs from sis with love.
