A creative cube


“What you see is a real mother-daughter moment. We were drawing at the table, while eating biscuits and drinking tea. When she showed me her latest work, a pencil drawing of lips, I couldn’t resist snapping a square to complete my Cuberace mission. It’s a perfect picture for a shapehunter like me, look at how the lines and forms come together!” (Annika from Oost-Souburg, the Netherlands)

Cycling circles


“To say my roommate Frank likes cycling would be an understatement. He is obsessed with every circle related to bikes. In a good way, though. Like other avid cyclists, Frank collects the caps worn under bike helmets. The black one represents his own crew. It might not be a surprise he’s part of a soon-to-be-opened bike-store in the city centre, called Meesterknecht.” (Frits from Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

Industrial dot


“I live on the KSNM-eiland, a neighborhood located in the old harbor of Amsterdam. A lot of steel structures and former building materials are still there, like cranes, shacks and sometimes even parts of industrial vessels. The dot I found was part of such a crane. For other people those big cranes out on the streets might look strange: for us it’s a sign of coming home.” (Barbara from Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

A dangerous circle


“While shooting a new Dutch series, called ’Zwarte Tulp’, I found this sign in a nursery garden dedicated to.. plants. Apparently the circle warns people for the potentially dangerous plants and pesticides you’ll find behind the glass. It makes sense, since we’re shooting the series in Lisse, at the heart of the Dutch flower bulb industry.” (Kaja from Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

Cannon Circles

“On the first day of our island-hopping trip in Greece, my boyfriend and I decided to visit a medieval castle. It had all kinds of treasures hidden everywhere, such as pillars and mosaics. We felt like time-travellers. We spotted the cannon balls there, too. They were casually lying around the historical area, as if the museum had too many of them and didn’t know what to do. Of course we couldn’t bring one home, but a circlistic photo of them works as a souvenir too.” (Karen from Zwolle, the Netherlands)
