I got this windmill yesterday in a speedy train to the Hague from Almere and it had also a very dirty window only to make the photograph more like a painting. One for Skywatch Friday here.

For ages the windows in Amsterdam were cleaned with ladders until around 1990 the inspection for healthy work conditions forbade this method because it gave to much accidents and a so called high worker was mandatory. That gave a lot of commotion because ladders are simple, cheap and don't take to much place in the narrow amsterdam streets. Today you see them nearly not anymore so this is a real exception. Yes the sign of progression. One for Signs, Signs here.

Sitting behind the computer again (yes bills have to be paid) then also using the fun of such an apparatus. I made this one just before I became ill from the church canal here in Almere-Haven. A fine one for Weekend Reflections here.

This year the Style Art Movement exists 100 years. Famous artists like Piet Mondriaan, Theo van Doesburg and Bart v.d. Leck were part of it.
Architect Gerrit Rietveld was another member of this group and here you see his famous chair and a lamp for one of his designs. In a lot of musea in our country you can now find exhibitions about the Style to memorize its birth.
