I was born and raised in Holland. I have sailed on sea for about 15 years, I 've enjoyed that part of my life very much, also the ships i have sailed on, I look back to with pleasure. After I retired, I started to picture/spot,ships at the Oude Maas te Barendrecht. Barendrecht is a small town, near to the large sea port of Rotterdam. Photographing ships became one of my favorite hobby's, which i enjoy very much. Feel free to look around on my website. www.brugbarendrecht.punt.nl Friendly Regards : Joop Klaasman.
