Bob Daalder

About 3 years ago I seriously discovered the fun of photography. It started rather innocent but right now it's part of every-day's life.

My photo's are very basic. I like to keep it plain and simple although I prefer a wonderful blur...
I try to show you everyday stuff in a slightly different way. I think my 'blue-period' is coming to its end. This doesn't mean I don't like blue anymore but I guess you will see other colours too in my latest work.

About > Activities

Bob Daalder is now following Marion Tenbergen

1955 geboren im Ruhrgebiet,
Vor 10 Jahren entdeckte ich das Grafikprogramm Corel PaintShop.
Malen und Zeichnen spielte schon immer eine große Rolle in meinem Leben und Farben beeinflussen mein Leben sehr. Oft betrachte ich Dinge die sich später in meinen Grafiken wiederspiegeln. Ein wesentliches Element in meinen Bildern besteht aus dem Mix der Techniken wie Effekte, Masken, Brushes und Farbfilter. Meine Bilder sind nicht nicht nur schwarz oder weiß, rund oder eckig, nein sie sind BUNT.

Bob Daalder is now following Dominique Gwerder

ich lebe in der Schweiz. Ich bin Autodidakt und künstlerisches Schaffen wird mir immer wichtiger. Bei Artflakes bin ich neu und alles ist noch etwas verwirrend, aber kommt schon ;)... Alle Bilder mit englischen Titeln findet ihr auf Society6 unter demselben Namen.

Ich hab's nicht so mit Worten, darum lasse ich lieber meine Werke für mich sprechen. Ich hoffe, euch gefällt meine Seite! Auf jeden Fall freut mich jedes Like, auch wenn ich nicht jedes Mal dafür danke!

I live in Switzerland. I'm an autodidact and art and being creative has become very important for me. I'm new to this site and have to learn the customs here and how to navigate... All art with English titles can also be found on society6 under the same name. Enjoy my site!

Bob Daalder has uploaded Happy thing

"The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”
- Emily Dickinson

"Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?
- Neltje Blanchan

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
- Leo Buscaglia

"It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams."
- Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Bob Daalder has uploaded Lets Party!

"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!"
- Robin Williams

"No one lights a lamp in order to hide it behind the door: the purpose of light is to create more light, to open people's eyes, to reveal the marvels around."
- Paulo Coelho

"Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world."
- Anthon St. Maarten

Bob Daalder has uploaded Free

"I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
- Robert A. Heinlein

Bob Daalder has uploaded Enjoy

"An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind."
- Mahatma Gandhi

Bob Daalder has uploaded Happiness

"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own."
