I made a short round to see what is interesting to shoot for Daily. I guessed that a lot of the scenes and things people are doing are similar all over the world.
In the supermarket I thought this must look the same everywhere, except maybe for this shot. Each supermarket, big or small sells flowers. Two ladies are looking for a nice bunch of flowers to put on the table, give to a friend or something(when you bring a small visit it is a custom to bring some tulips are whatever). Do you see this kind of flower stalls also at your supermarket?
I have been to the theater of Woerden to a performance of the Taksim Trio. Never heard of the people, the only thing I knew is that it was Turkish music. I enjoyed it a lot. I closed my eyes and completely drifted away..
I need to go into town and make some new shots. The autumn/winter is really starting, all the pictures I have are still of sunny warm days. But this one I still like to post. This old house is so interesting. It stands in the middle of town and it feels like it's an old old man who has seen a lot, but still going strong.
The tower of Nieuwkoop, build in 1672, used to be part of a 'High house' of a Lord. In 1816 the house itself was demolished. (this was a time when most of the medieval housed, castle, city walls and structures were demolished). The tower remained and is pretty high. Nieuwkoop is quite close to Woerden but I never new it existed..
I have had friends over for dinner and cooked a real Russian meal. The dessert was a real success. Buns stuffed with a mixture of boiled maw-seeds with honey, cinnamon, raisins, treacle and some other spices.
I have been on a holiday to Russia, for that reason I have not been posting images for a while. But I am back :), I have made 800 pictures so I decided not to post any of them but continue with Holland pictures. This picture is of several weeks ago. We are going into autumn so the landscape doesn't look like this anymore..
