The Dutch Pyramid

The pyramid of Austerlitz was build by one of the generals in the army of Napoleon, but was named after a Czech village. The general who build the pyramid had hopes it would be named after him, but history proved him wrong..

This time right on time for the coming Monochrome Madness at Leanne Cole’s site. Choose an image i took this weekend from the Jacobus Church in the centre of the town where i live. This part of the town is very pretty with old houses, a lovely park in the front and the church towering the landscape.

Travel – a Monochromed Madness Theme

This week is the first of the month, so it means that at Leanne Cole there is a themed Monochrome Madness. This month’s theme is Travel. For the image i choose, i didn’t choose to go through all my travel photos to pick the one i liked the most. Instead, i intuitively choose this picture i took a little over a week ago at the coast in Zeeland (a province in the south-west of the Netherlands, close to the sea as it’s name translates to Sea land). It’s one of my former roommates walking through the wet sand on our stroll on the beach. I personally like the simplicity of it. Not difficult to see what the image is about and yet the reflection creates a subtle extra dimension. Walking is such a wonderful way to travel. Just go where the legs will bring you

And as an extra i’d like to show the original colored version too, think the sand looks great in colors 🙂
