 A door I photographed in 2015 in Amsterdam because I just liked it. Made out of wood in "Amsterdam School" style. A style of architecture that arose from 1910 through about 1930 in the Netherlands. Watch the link for more information.

 "Turn on your light!" says this message on the asphalt at the cycling path in our neighbourhood. It is a fact that many cyclists have no proper lights on their bikes and at some places the lighting on the paths is also not very well. So it is a good warning I think. Linking to "Signs 2"

 A photo from last year with the festive decorations of Saint Nicolas presents eve at a bookstore in Amsterdam. Haven't been for months in Amsterdam now. The last time was in May when the lockdown started, and I don't think I am going very soon. But at least we have the photos to get in the mood. Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

I had my birthday last week without visitors this year. Limited visitors allowed I decided to cancel all of them and had a quiet day. But I received a beautiful bouquet of my daughter, and she sent me a chocolate bar  of Tony Chocolonely by mail!

Sofietje celebrated  my "party" with a dance on the table.

Got caught

 I have a husband who always has a camera in his hands. At a walk in our neighbourhood I met a former collegue of the public library and we had a chat.

I have no idea what we were talking about because the photo dates from 2017. Watch the dog, he is bored and lying down until we have finished at last.

But hubby had secretly approached us slowly before we noticed him. Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

 A few shots from 2014 of the daily Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam. We used to live close by and walked every day over de market. When we had  left Amsterdam and moved to the middle of nowhere in a polder, we both missed it  very much. 

In the weekends we returned often to our "Cuypie" where you always can find something special .

Wonderful cakes.

And a warm sheepskin.
