22. Announcing Photo Exhibition 2020 ERICAMERA.

Announcing Photo Exhibition 2020 ERICAMERA

Photoclub Ericamera would like to announce their yearly exhibition.

Under the influence of the covid 19 pandemie all the members of the club have had to adjust to the new situation, the forum evenings and even the trips out together proved to be a challenge.

After adapting ways to get together, we were able to, by video chats combined with meeting together following the 1.5 metre guidelines, to look at and discuss all our photo’s.

We hoped to stimulate and create enthusiasm by finding assignments that would challenge our members to experiment in their own environment.

The assignments included “negative space”, selfportait( with some limitations), light,dark, sharp or not sharp and a few other things. The restrictions of the lockdown, and the use of this new way of working , has not caused a decline in quality that as been produced, on the contrary our knowledge and pleasure has only increased.

This year we will be holding our exhibition on 7th and 8th November 2020 and will be found in the community centre VTA  Blixems on the Ouverture 2, 5629PVEindhoven.

Entry is free.

The opening times are on Saturday 7th from 12.00 to 17.00 and on Sunday 8th 11.00 to 17.00.

Before you can take a look at our website for all the latest information over the exhibition.

Zorba’s Taverna

Zorba’s Taverna

For the regular visitors to the shopping centre on the Ouverture they will have seen that we have a new Greek Restaurant in our neighbourhood.

Unfortunately because of the corona outbreak the opening was delayed, but on the 6 of June the doors finally opened, with less festivities than originally planned.

Zorba’s Taverna is a family run business which is run by Georgia and her two daughters, Jamilla and Chelly and with help from both her parents.

Georgia was born in Eindhoven and her Greek father in the past has run restaurants in Nuenen and in the eindhoven’s neighbourhood Vaartbroek, from this came the inspiration to open her own restaurant.

Georgia has always been charmed by the Blixembosch neighbourhood and found the people friendly and accessible so when the former ice salon became available her dream came true, and after a time of renovation  the new restaurant became reality with authentic Greek meals and drinks.

Foremost is the guest’s experience in our restaurant together with the quality of the food and service, that applies to the restaurant as well as the takeaway.

Ibu Pitjit in our neighbourhood

Ibu Pitjit in our neighbourhood.

I would like to introduce you to my massage practice. My origin’s lay in Indonisia and growing up in an Indonisian family I am no stranger to massage, in my youth I enjoyed giving together with my mother and other family members intuitive Indonisian massage(Pitjit)

Later I learn’t that a soft hand or foot massage brings rest to demented people. All these experience’s made me want to know more about massage.

After I had successfully completed a course as Shiatsu and stool masseur I followed an extensieve course for Pitjit massage, after successful completion can I now call myself Ibu Pitjit.

A massage can not only bring you rest but also can bring other emotions free, this can be liberating. This liberation of emotions can bring relaxation in your body which in turn allows you to work on your balance bring you more energy.

I started my practice in Oss in 2005 and in 2019 I moved my practice to Agaat 11.

Are you interested or would you like to know moree than don’t hesitate to take a look at my website at .

Why not make use of my special offer and find out how relaxing a massage can be.

You are very welcome.
