Well, this would be one the best photos I've made that day, IF I had noticed that the skyfilter (lens) was dirty Twisted Evil

And here, you should switch on your loudspeakers and listen to that guy playing the guitar (like his daughter and I did) :wink:

Some more house, which might especially be of interest for those, who haven't been to a smaller town in the Netherlands before.
(I especially like that really small house :wink: )

That was my selction of photos from a day-out in Utrecht and Amersfoort.

On my way back I stopped short at a place I haven't been for about 40 years, in Buurse, a 'church village' in the municipality of Haaksbergen.

Friends of our family owned a big farmhouse there, used as a weekend/holiday cottage and for their horses. I really liked to stay there.

I didn't re-find many places I've been around in those days, bit there was still the old church with the waterpump.

And therefor, I post two photos of that ensemble here and now.
Thanks for listening :wink:

Thanks so much for the photos. Great water pump...

I liked that smallest house too - and the paving.

And your comments inspired me to look up online someone I knew years ago. He is a dutch american. At the time, he was our lab dishwasher, a senior premed student, very smart and involved in he politics of the time. Turns out, he's still a cutie in his recent photo, has a good med practice and was voted best professor at his med school. I knew he'd go far, and it's such a pleasure to see.
