One of old the empty cheese stores of Woerden. There are a lot of them in town. Woerden is part of the Gouda cheese zone. Now adays there are stored in huge storages. I would love to buy it and turn it into a home. But I don't have the money nor the skills. So it is just a pleasant day dream...
During a late night walk in the centre of Woerden I was struck by the trees. They look strong, dark, scary and evil. But that was just my perception of the moment. In summer they look much different :)
An exhibition on the ‘affected body’, I haven’t been to the exhibit but it might be interesting. The exhibit shows pictures of the affected body by deceases and it’s social effect on the person by pictures of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Hand colored pictures of hands with skin deceases from 1868, the horrors of the first WW. The affection, the vulnerable fascinates..
This weekend is the last weekend so I might just hop on the train and have a look this Saturday.
This is the frost on my car window this morning when I went to work. It's freezing cold these days, sometimes - 10 degrees. The shapes of the frost is one of these small wonders of nature which captured my attention, amazingly beautiful shapes…
Winter and medieval shot.. Wat you see are the buildings of the formar Catherine monastery which has been closed somewhere around 1580. Amazing that the medieval atmosphere has survived the past 500 years!
I noticed this interesting gate a few days ago. It looks like a new gate, well kept, but.... in front of the entrance is a big old tree, it would even not be possible to open the gate.. Fascinating, I wonder what the story is of this gate. The tree must be a 150 years old so the gate must have been deliberately situated in front of the tree...
Ah Thursday morning and it is freezing! I am working from home so I don't need to go and join the traffic jams. Soon we will be able to ice skate at the canal, that will create some awesome pictures :)
