Well, when I'm in italy, All I have to do is raised my camera hand and not flit it to one side or another.

Of course did a little of culture .... and visited the medieval Buurekerk or Minor St. Mary Church (one of the original four parochial churches of Utrecht.
And I made dozens of photos there, showing here only a few.


Stop, stop! Don't scroll this: in that church there's now the "Nationaal Museum van Speelklok tot Pierement" - the Dutch National Museum from Musical Clock to Street Organ :wink:

I had classes in the building on the left (or the building neighbouring that one, I forget), once. But the university has sold it since.

The shop on the right is a hairdressers, I went there for years. Called "Devillish". The main guy there was a character. Young guy, always with some new radical hairstyle or colour. Gruff type. Loud music, interesting clientele. Most just clubbers or other trendy youth, or people who wanna go to a hairdressers where trendy youths go. But I also once had my hair being washed while that hairdresser guy and another gruff-looking guy were talking about their heroin taking days.

At the end of this street (on the left of this pic) is the back entry of another university building where I had classes - nice building, that one.

Might be that it is sold - but a few students (= persons I identified by their outlook as students) went in .... and some came out (= normal university business Laughing )
