After 7 years of work on the new metro beneath, the Ferdinand Bol street is nearly finished.
Still some last measurements are made but the gadgets do it now on their own. Just put them on their place, check for no empty batteries and there they go.

To start the New Year hereby a mural from Manuel Zeeman, his self describing as a Portuguese-Dutch Hybrid. The following text is from his Instagram page
Cassiopeia & the Kingfisher" A personal take on life's unpredictabilities, twists and turns, its traps and its moments of glory. 3,5x2 meters, spray paint and house paint @ gravenstraat, Amsterdam. the poem is my own and reads: "The true tragedy of love is its irreplaceability. The touch that takes over, your physical self, which it owns. The memory where it lives and haunts, its touch that enlightens and to darkness returns, on a first breath of absence."
One for Monday Murals here.

Every person you see here is a reflection.
And now on to 2017. What will it bring. Not another reflection of history I hope but a real and happy future. Some big changes are inevitable but whether they are all good. Only time will tell.
One for Weekend Reflections here.

Here the Groenburgwal going into the Amstel river. Nice from winter is that by missing the tree leaves you have a better view of the houses along the canals. One for Skywatch Friday here .
