I am not sure but on this place in the amsterdam nieuwmarkt area ( J.B.Sibbeleshof) were houses removed for the construction of the amsterdam metro. As a reminder are some keys from the front doors of the demolished houses put in the pavement. A nice one for signs, signs here.

The Water Gate in Sneek. Build in 1492 and rebuild in 1613 because it had lost its purpose as military defense in the wall. From the six original water gates this is the only one that exist today in Sneek. The other 5 were removed in the 19th century. One for weekend reflections here.

Sunlight falling through a 17th century window in the Portuguese Synagog Amsterdam.
Its a pity that blogger makes the picture lighter so that the original dark, light contrast is a bit blown away. On my original the white of the wall was not showing. Tried different solutions but until now without succes.

Thousands of Barnacle geese choose the sky bothered by foxes in the Oostvaardersplassen . They are wintering here from their nesting island Nova Zembla .
The above picture is a crop from this one. It was a mighty view. Every 10 minutes somewhere a flock was taking the air and landed again. Its a matter of days now before they go back to their breeding grounds. One for skywatch friday here.

In this little canal in Sneek lives a Great Crested Grebe.
He was so kind to catch a little perch before my eyes.
Water quality is really very good here in Sneek but I must admit that you see them also in the canals of Amsterdam or Almere. One for camera critters here and wild bird wednesday here.

Bridge No. 281 of the amsterdam list of bridges (named Pepper Bridge) connects the Peperstraat with the new Uilenburgerstraat. It blends so well in the street that you see it almost only when you are on it. On the moment the list contains 2888 bridges and is still growing. If you want to see more bridges you can go to the list and click on the links . Every bridge has at least one photo or go to sunday bridges here.

Friend of mine has a little kitchen garden not far from his home.
He also has some fresh eggs daily. For us city inhabitants its always a miracle to see where the stuff is coming from. I had such a garden also when I came to Almere because in 1980 was the habit that everybody had the possibility to rent a garden like this for say 50 dollars a year on walking distance of your home. After 10 years I quit with it because it was to much troubles then. Now the most gardens are transformed into buildings and apartments.
