It's the day before Christmas and I should be posting a Christmas tree. But the mill looks good this morning. Another thing is that I don't see so many Xmas deco, I guess everybody takes it light this year.
Yesterday I just happen to pass a studio where there was some kind of arty exposition on food. This is a shot of a girl crowling on the floor munching rice papers. First she stayed on her square meter, but later on she was crawling over the floor of the whole studio. It felt arty, as I was chatting away, at each glans away from the conversation she was crowling somewhere else.
After visiting a customer I drove back via a small road in the country. While driving I noticed a funny looking building. I stopped to take a closer look. It could be a teahouse or a casket for a saint image or so. It appeared to be too small for a tea house and to be honest a casket for a saint satue is very unlikely. There was nothing inside and probably never have been, judging by the cleanness of it. So I figured the owner just made it for the fun of it.
This afternoon I took a walk with some friends on the grounds of a former estate. It was a big park with fields and a lot of forest. As you can see on the picture it will not take long before the winter is coming..
This wasn't at the cartoon section, but the art section. A man was selling all kinds of beautiful religious art. Of which one a statue of the Madonna. Very good quality. Only for 80 Euro's. It has always been at a church in France, that's why it was in perfect state and fine work. But I resisted the temptation again. It doesn't really fit in my house...
I have been with a friend to the collectors fair in Utrecht. I was amazed of what things are collected. The coming days an impression of the stuff I thought interesting enhough to photograph. My interest does is cartoons so plenty of pics of those.
An unbelievable amount of stuff which can be collected...
Last week there was an evening fair in town.. I was surprized that I could make a such a good picture with my iPhone. For the rest it was not interesting to stay, it would have been fun if I was 16 years of age. That was the age of the average visitor.
The yearly, so called cow market, has been last wednesday. The centre of town is then one big market. Lot's of food.. Here some shots to have an impression of the market stands.
The first stand is one with sausages. It's the time of the year for the sausage we eat traditionally in the winter seizon, called rookworst or smoked sausage. This stand owner has traditional made sausages.
Lot's of fish too, but that is not really my pick..
Cheese is traditionally round, but that doesn't needs to be like that.
Even more sausages, homemade...
And finaly, strawberries, actually too red for my iPhone camera..
It's the time of the year that we have fresh apples and pears again. This year has been a good year for these fruits, they are very juicy and tasty. The summer we had was perfect for them and there are many! On the country side you see the trees full with big tempting apples. But eating apples is a virtue I guess.
Note that the farm building is dating from late middle ages. You can see this from the type of stones.
