About

I’m (D)OCULAR,

I was born may 1985 in Ghent. At the moment I live in Antwerp.
The alias (D)OCULAR consists of two parts, the part ‘docu’ stands for documentary and ‘ocular’ refers to the human eye.

On this photoblog I try to post a selection of pictures I took during the last months.
shoot with a Nikon D5000 and a lot of old film and polaroid cameras.
The regulars (film): Yashica 635, Kiev 88, Nikon FG, Nikon N6006, Nikon F2, Isolette II.
The regulars (Polaroid): SX70, SX70 Sonar, Colorpack II, Big swinger 3000, Impulse, Supercolor 670 AF, Spectra and a Porst magic 500.

Feel free to check my daily post as well {ON HOLD}.

  1. (D)OCULAR, thanks for following Daytripper Sippers. I’m finding your site very interesting. I like the blog layout you have, uncluttered and it highlights your photos. It’s very interesting to me to see which cameras you use and how. I like seeing the world through your lens. CC

    • You’re welcome. It’s an interesting blog to follow, nice photos and especially your story / quest about your ancestors intrigues me. So I’ll be looking forward to your “My convicts” blog about them.

  5. Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog, you have some really nice pics here – I really like the details you pick out in your urban images – taking notice of the beautiful / interesting things we often miss living and working in a busy city – I appreciate this a lot 🙂 Tan

  7. Erg origineel jouw naam! Knappe foto’s, leuke details…kortom leuk vertoeven hier op jouw blog! Groetjes, Coccinella.

  8. ik heb je foto’s bekeken en ik ben onder de indruk! Bijzonder knappe fotografie, schitterende composities, oog voor detail, prachtig kleurenpallet… artistiek, simpelweg erg mooi! Je slaagt erin om eenvoudige zaken, waar velen waaronder ik zelf, zouden voorbij lopen, beklijvend in beeld te brengen. Proficiat!

    • Bedankt voor je super toffe comment,

      De eenvoudige kleine details of onopvallende zaken boeien mij. Ik probeer met mijn foto’s een eigen blik op de wereld om mij heen te geven, die eenvoudige zaken loop ik meestal spontaan tegen het lijf :D.

      Tof dat je de tijd genomen hebt om hier een rond te kijken. Hopelijk tot snel, hier of op jou blog.

  9. Hey there! Thanks for the visit and the like.
    I really like the header and how you have condensed the two words together. And your use of simple ideas like braces and bold text for the name is very ingenious.

    • Hey,

      Thanks for the nice comment. If you like the headers, check out the permanent pages (on the bottom of every post), the header changes with every page. I always use one photo to make a header with.

    • thanks,
      I first wanted something else (I can’t even remember what), but that was already taken. And then this popped up, I especially liked the brackets it breaks the word and makes it stand out more.

      Enjoy, And I’ll see you around, over here or @your blog.

    • I’m just an amateur to, I learn every day and get astonished by photos from real pro’s every day. But I’m glad you like them. Most of these pictures are taken with the same camera as you, because he’s ideal for taking with you on a trip or holiday.

        • At this moment none on this blog is taken with a DSLR, only my GE X5. Sometimes with a lot of frustration because I don’t get the desired effect, but most of the time it works. Thanks for the positive comment, that’ll keep me going again for a while ;).
