Queensday composition

Queensday here in The Netherlands was very dramatic this year, since a man ran into the crowd that was cheering on the royal family and killed seven people. It took a while to process what happened, and to actually post this picture that I love. I took it on Queensday, and it was one of those surreal compositions you cannot think of yourself, except maybe after consuming copious amounts of alcohol or drugs.

The headlessness, the humping of the computer screen, the leaves, the bikes turning their backs to the scene… I love it! What I loved even more is that I saw someone walking around with this puppet in her hands hours after I took the picture, truly happy with finding it abandoned on the streets. The screen must be so lonely now though…
