A few months back I introduced you to my sister. Well, last weekend my brother came to visit. It had been almost 2 years that I had seen him and though I was prepared from facebook pictures, I was still shocked – he’s undoubtedly turning into a man. At just 15 he clearly gets his height from his mother’s side and not from our father’s as he towers over all of us, much to his entertainment!!
I remember wondering when he was about 5 as I had to intervene in a fight he had with Amy about a puzzle whether we’d find ourselves having a real sibling relationship or whether he’d always see me as “on the adult side”. As it turns out, it worked out naturally – I’m his sister, that’s it. We have a lovely bond and I’m very grateful for it. So when he asked if I could take a few photographs of him in the Scheveningen harbor, I was happy to oblige. I was requested to go “less dark than my usual stuff”, as he put it, since he very much likes vibrant colours – well, I tried, but with his built, I couldn’t resist doing a few moodier “badass” frames as well!!
