Alone on

This is an old one I found in the archives of 2017. The text "Alone on" refers to the death of the Mayor of Amsterdam "Eberhard Van der Laan" at the left and the boy who wears the coat of arms of Amsterdam symbolizes  the Amsterdam people that have to find a new balance without him. Linking to:

 At the fashion exhibition  in Amsterdam  an replica of  an Amsterdam Orphan girl's dress made of wool, cotton and metal made in 1996 after an  original from 1900.

 On a walk in the surroundings last Sunday I saw a big bird high up in a tree. It happened to be a heron.

Never knew they sit in trees I only see them flying in the air or walking along the water. Linking to

Maison Amsterdam (2)

The Wedding Dress of our Queen Maxima designed by Valentino from 2002 was also exhibited .

It was a rather simple dress with not much details and a long train.

That was a bit difficult to pothograph as it was surrounded by glass.

Maison Amsterdam

 At last we could visit an exhibition after more than a year of cancelling everything due to the Corona Pandemic. This was a fashion exhibition in the New Church in Amsterdam.

It was fun to see the extravagance.

Monday Mural

 I once saw this at the back of a car in The USA in 2008. I agree with all of them, only not the last one. Our country takes good care of most of the eldery people. Linking to "Monday Mural"
