Evidence in case my sister deletes it by accident again: I scored over 10 million on PinBot! Fortunately I had a witness as well; my father watched how my playing led to our dinner getting cold.



My home-made tarot cards. Decided to photograph them for my site.


My first sunflower!


Entrance for my second-favourite place in The Netherlands: De Efteling.


A flower in De Efteling. Funky, huh!


The haunted castle, shot through the gates prior to the park opening so that I could get a shot without buggys everywhere.


More Efteling: topiary dragon. Hmm.


A chandelier in the Middle-East themed dark-ride. It's a nice chandelier. I was about to make the picture I always wanted to have, so I switched on my camera...
And then the boats stalled. Probably some disabled people getting in.
So I made some random photos to prevent my camera from falling asleep: I didn't want to miss the djinn by switching off my camera and then failing to get it back on.


And here is the picture I always wanted: the Djinn. A very impressive evil spirit that guards the treasure. Not that you'll see the treasure 'cos you'll only watch the Djinn. He's HUGE, and he's right at the start of a room, so it's real hard to get a good shot.


Rainbow!


A very odd clock I found at the second-hand store. Also has a thermometer.


Slipover I knitted for my father. It's too small :( , but it looks good all the same. After a 1940's pattern.

A very interesting mix of photos. I wouldn't like to meet that Djinn guy in a dark alley.

Or a light alley. Or behind you in the queue at the post office.

Here are my GLOW-photos:

Disused building brought to life with eyes.




Monument for the incandescent bulb, at a monumental cemetery. First time I've been to a cemetery in the dark.


Town Hall. See video.



"Timing"


Chandelier in the GLOW-cafe


Light-drawings.

Is that haunted castle part of the story of the white ladies?

The White Women? No, they live in forests. It was just a memorial for the incandescent bulb (a tunnel of light in a coffin) at a cemetery. The path to it ran across the cemetery, starting with cool blue TL tubes and using "warmer" light types the further you progressed towards the memorial. The crucifix at the back lit up creepily too.

It's an actual graveyard. It may be considered disrespectful by some to use a cemetery as setting for it, but it worked perfectly. It was one of the best artworks of the festival.

I'm not very fond of memorial sites myself. Cemeteries always made me very scared as a child, and I was pleasantly surprised that I was at ease and relaxed in an old burial ground at nighttime.
I was also surprised that there actually WAS a monumental graveyard in Eindhoven. It's very pretty and I intend to have a look by day there!

We don't have Indian burial grounds around here.

Reminds me: during GLOW I noticed something we had for years, but which I hadn't noticed before. Our St Catherine church is a very old religious site, although the current church is 19th century. It has 500 to 1000 skeletons, dating back to the 1300s. When they started rebuilding the church square, they also started on an intensive research on the site, possibly finding a cure for AIDS. They reconstructed the faces of many of them.

That I knew. It was hard to overlook it at the time. But I didn't know the design of the square was based on the old church: the outline of the medieval building is made visible in the stones of the square.
Even more surprising are the two windows in the ground: you can still see leftovers of the old church foundation through these; and old skeletons of people who were buried there.

Pictures coming up!

Anyway, here's a peep through a window into the ground at the church steps:





And here, something more tasteful:

Some of my snow pictures:













And this is my clay statuette. It's modelled after those funny bouncing green heads that are servants of the witch.

This weekend there was a festival in Eindhoven. Actually, there were several, but the one I'm talking about is Step In The Arena.

Previously I have posted pictures of graffiti in the Berenkuil, which is a municipally appointed free-place to spray graffiti art. This gives beautiful results. There was an annual festival for artists, but that disappeared. Now it's back! And in full glory!

I couldn't limit myself to uploading 10 of the pictures I made.














A topical cartoon: the caption is "Meanwhile in New York
















Another topical one. Unfortunately this reference to sexual abuse within the Catholic Church is already defouled.

Why yes, it has crossed my mind! But wall is a tough canvas and paint is an expensive medium.

Anyway, here are my Madurodam pictures: lots of Dutch buildings in 1:25 scale.


[url=http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sint-Janskathedraal_('s-Hertogenbosch)]St John cathedral in 's-Hertogenbosch[/url]
In real life, this gothic church (finished around 1530) has just had extensive renovation.
(Link won't work for unknown reason)



Overview of the park.


Building of the Domtoren in Utrecht was completed in 1382. The church that goes with it became unattached when a tornado destroyed the middle 50 metres of the church. That building hasn't been depicted, and unlike the tower it was made in gothic style. The tower is in Dutch style. It is the tallest church tower in The Netherlands at 112 m high.
I love this tower as it's so massive and imposing, and a very good orientation point. I have often tried to make pictures of it, but it's very hard.



The Candydrum is very recent, it was originally built in The Hague in 1998. It always makes me hungry.


The Muiderslot, possibly built around 1280, was the residence of count Floris V. He was captured by two noblemen and locked in his own castle. Five days later, in June 1296, he tried to escape and was killed in the process.


Binnenhof is the Dutch political centre.



The most eye-catching building of Eindhoven: Evoluon


Maeslantkering was finished in 1997, it was visited by yours truly in the same year. In real life, this building consists of two arms on either side, each measuring 300m (one Eiffel tower) in length, and is to be closed whenever a flood is coming.
Since the closing down of the Dutch main waterway takes an hour and is very costly, it's only done once a year to test it and only used in case of emergency. These, however, close every few minutes.


The Nijenrode castle is home to a university: the one where DED graduated.

Glorious!!! Wish we had a miniature park like that. Thanks for the different explanations as well, the Domtoren in particular. Gives me a sense of the wealth of Utrecht for the time it was built. Same time as the Campanile in Florence that some would say was excellent Gothic and which bears some tri-partite similarity to the middle section of the Domtoren.
Yet you insist that this church tower in Utrecht is Dutch and not gothic, which I accept.
But it makes me think is that because of the top which appears octagonal here? Or the kind of design for the top? questions, trying to learn
