Black Cat

I love cats, they are arrogant and very self aware, this one is looking at me with a look, 'You can't do me anyting'. This cat was extreamly releaxed and hotaine.

The new food hype

The cupcake is out, the Macaron has arrived. It's the new food hype. Nice, but a little bit over-rated cookie by my opinion.

The end of the world

Funny, this building is called 'building the end of the world' Must have been named a hundred years ago. What do you think; is the end of the world is near?

I have to do it, this picture is nothing particular, but one thing, the sun is back!
Hurray, it is as if spring is starting, it has been dark and grey for so long that the coming of the sun is reason for wistheling :)

Love is the fundament

In the very old days, up to 1700, rough guess, it was the custom to give a house a plaque or commemorative stone. This stone had all kinds of motives, artifacts, the owner’s occupation, religious themes and so on. This one in particular wants to say that love is the fundament of life or family life.

There is a group which works to maintain and restore the surviving stones. Restoring is to paint them back into the original colors since they were always brightly painted. I have the evidence that they actually do this. In June 2009 I pictured this same stone.. See the difference.

The stone before..

Mind your head

Living in an old town can be lovely. The historic houses, scenes and the presence of the past everywhere around you. However in the past people used to be much smaller; notable at these stairs in a restaurant, the sign is a necessity.

Somebody did put out the flag yesterday. There are offical rules when you may flag or not. We may do it on days when somebody of the Royal Familie has their birthday. Or when there is a National day. It was neither of both, so somebody was probably just feeling patriotic...

Rubens exposition

Currently there is an exposition in the Hermitage of Amsterdam, Rubens, Van Eijk and Jordeans. It was a fabulous experience! I seen paintings which I seen before in the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg.

Discussing art...

An Ecco Homo as I have never seen before. This painting never been in a church but belonged to a private collection.

Inside the musuem, the Hermitage of Amsterdam is very big, but only a part is used for exhibtions.
