Amsterdam/design


I took this photograph in the oldest church in Amsterdam. This room truly made me swoon.  I might use this image as the place I go to in my head when the world’s just too much.

This church is in the red-light district—it was founded in 1213 and consecrated in 1306.  After the Reformation it became a Calvinist church.  Here’s a link with more information.

These globes and the plants were in the street front windows of an apartment.

One thought on “Amsterdam/design

  1. It is always surprising how the need to decorate and or express/present, cannot be suppressed. At least not for too long.
    Remarkably, a family statement on a small shop window created by a somewhat untrained eye, can offer a long lasting impression which goes beyond a professional contrivance.
