Photographer's Note

My grandfather was a pilot for KLM. As anyone at that time he was very proud to work for KLM (that's what makes my familys blood 'blue') and being a pilot was his life.

When I lived with my grandmother a few months ago I loved sitting in my grandfather's studyroom. I believe I inherited my love for (old) books from him. Sitting in that room where he spend a lot of his time reading and studying makes me feel at home. As for now, the study room is the only room that 100% reminds me of him as my grandmother barely comes here.
While sitting is in one of his reading-chairs his two uniform hats caught my attention. They were carefully placed on a pile of old books in front worldmap which fully covers one of the walls. I just had to take a shot (mostly because I had just received my 350D I bought on Ebay)

Because of the bad lighting conditions in the study (it really is such an old fashioned room with dark interior and nothing but a few lights to read) I had to upgrade this shot in Photoshop using curves, USM and adjusting the colours.
