Westermarkt

Dutch Word of the Day
zomer: summer
Het is zomer tijd!
It is summer time.

It was 78 degrees today. It’s really beautiful weather. We’re going to have a ten degree drop later this week, but when I look at New York and New England, I really don’t mind. Sometimes I just walk between around the Jordaan between the Herengracht, Keizergracht and Singel and just embrace the crooked canal house homogeneity. It’s even prettier when you’re not freezing.

The Westermarkt is finally out of it’s scaffolding. It’s so pretty. It’s hard to find a good angle to get a good shot. (click it and you’ll get a larger image) I think I would have to be either in a boat or a nearby building to capture it perfectly. I took this shot from the Keizergracht. The paint is really beautiful. I’m glad I got the flag mid-flap.

I still have to go inside.
