Fog and Rain

No snow or cold, but fog and rainy weather, nevertheless it does feel christmasy. This is a shot of the windmill (from 1718) of Goidschalxoord, a small village close to my work.

I have no idea what the name of the village stands for, except that it is hard to pronounce, it's an impossible combination of sounds and vowels.

Welcome in Gouda

Not really my territory... but nevertheless, this is a tile work at the train station of Gouda. I has always been there as long as I remember, the image of a man, advertising smoking.

Bakfiets in the snow. A very Dutch bike I think to transport your kids to school.

At the local radio station

At the local radio station. They have the freedom to address music which doesn't make it to the main stream radio. I love their programns!

I am currently working in Riel, almost part of Tilburg, not really my blogging territory ... I took a snapshot, while taking my lunch 'walk'. It looks very South Holland to me.

Awesome sky when I drove to work in Tilburg this morning. I have a lot of work to do now a days, the crisis does not count for my type of job. But something good coming up, the Daily City Bloggers meeting of Holland! A tradition which started last year in Tilburg :)

A site you don't see that often, the official portrait of our head of state, Queen Beatrix. I know that before her portrait would be present in state offices, official building etc. I saw this portrait close to the entrance of the St. Anthony hospital. I thought this to be a good photo moment.

Rainbow season

It appears to be the rainbow season... I counted six beautiful rainbows the past weeks. Bright, clear, shiny and very colorful rainbows. It almost seems like some kind of a message.

Basement of Winkel van Sinkel

The basement of the restaurant/pub Winkel van Sinkel is interesting to take a look at when you are in Utrecht. The old city has a lot of basements, cellar and vaults, some dating back very very long ago. This basement hosts the toilets, a seond bar, a night restaurant, dance places, the kitchen and what knows more..

Clogs for sale

At a market in Holland you usually have the option to buy wooden shoes. They usually only cost around 15 €. You might think that it is uncomfortable to wear them, the contrary is treu. It is surprisingly comfortable. You don't wear them at home or in the office, but outside, in the garden, when you are doing work. Here a  man needed new ones because they do become worn.

I have seen a beautiful bronze statue at the 'cow market' of Woerden. Very interesting but 350 Euro is a prize which I find too much.

A picture of an awesome stonework I seen at a church in Utrecht. It is from the middle-ages. It survived because it has been plastered behind a wall during the Reformation. It depicts the woman at the empty grave of Christ.

Sunny shot

A sunny shot of the church across the street, as you can see all the trees have been removed for a renovation of the park and cobble stones.

Wedding car at night

Last night when I came back from Utrecht there was a magnificent sight of the centre with a wedding car. I guess I noticed because the evenings are growing long again. Autumn and Winter are coming..

Cut down

That's a pitty, the tree's across the street are being cut down. It might create a more open space though.

I am looking to buy a house, just across the street is an interesting house, too expensive. This church is exactly opposite of the house.

Den Bosch city wall

Oeps, time to post a photo, I have been very occupied with studies and I actually forgot to renew my photo collection. This is a shot of a day out in the city Den Bosch. You see here the remains of the city defence of the 1600's something.
