Strange picture

The pictures I post on my blog are all made with my Iphone. Since I have an Iphone I hardly use my camera.  But this picture is weird: I never made this shot, yet it is in my photo folder... strange, I never seen this, it are Chinese dragons, I haven't been here.. That shoudn't be possible right?

A heron waiting for fish

Two guys are fishing in city-moat, patiently observed by a heron. In my perception most of the semi-wild animals who share our living space seem to be ignorant of human presence, but now the heron was focused on the hands of the fisherman. They did catch a pike, but they put it back in the moat. To the dismay of the heron I recon.

The greyhound mill in the snow

The snow will be gone for this year, I expect, so this will be my last picture of Woerden in the snow.

For Carneval

Woerden is not big on Carneval, I believe it is not celebrated, but in Harmelen they do, that is the town bordering Woerden. It's my home town so I have been down there so see how things were going.

Ad from one of our newspapers, it says Good People and what good people are supposed to do and think. Personally I find the add a bit cavil/ carp. It is soaked in political correct messages.

Old city

At the exhibition on Woerden in the .. I spotted a photo of the city of Woerden about 60 years ago. In those days the city was more or less still within the city-moat. Now a days the city has grown about 5 to 6 times it size. But the skyline has always remained the same though. I recognize it immediately.
