Baarn is a small town in The Netherlands. It is close to Soestdijk Palace that was the residence of Dutch Queen Juliana. Therefor it has a Royal waiting room that is not accessible for ordinary people to my knowledge but has an impressive entrance door (photo 2)
Measuring is Knowing
Just outside our meeting place of my previous post. The Music Theater probably will need more room than anticipated..and will leave no room for shopping ladies anymore…..
Almost every Wednesday morning you can find me in Cafe Van Beek in the City Hall of The Hague where a couple of Photographers who know each other from Flickr meet to have a Coffee and chat a bit about Photography and everything else. The first Wednesday of 2019 we toasted with a Dutch Gin or Genever to celebrate a Happy New Year for 2019.
Update: Hah and Anoek (The Boss) has borrowed this photo…..
Scheveningen Water Tower
The water tower in Scheveningen is located in the dunes near Scheveningen, near the Pompstationsweg, in the Oostduinen district. The tower has the state monument status. The water tower was designed by architects L. A. Brouwer and Thy. Bar in neoclassical style and built in 1874 by The Hague Dune Water Company (now called Dunea).
Due to its two reservoirs of 1000 and 1200 m³ respectively, this tower can store the most water from Zuid-Holland. It was built because one started winning water in the dunes. It has a height of 48.74 meters. The tower was restored at the end of the 20th century. It is still in use and is on the list of monuments.
Happy Moo Year
The second post in a series I started yesterday: Photo of the Day. The idea is to publish more of my photos, albeit fresh albeit from my huge digital archive. This photo dates from 2014 when I skied few days in Grossarl, a little town in Austria where they had a statue of a Horse and a statue of a Cow on the roof of the restaurant next to the mountain station of the cable car that brings you from Grossarl to the ski region above it.
