This is Ulaf

Ulaf’s dream is to build engines for a top Formula One team.

Ulaf is currently operating a windmill in Haarlem. He takes his time when showing me how it works, telling me in great detail how the oak cogs were carved. He doesn’t get many visitors and he is excited that I want to know about all the machinery.

Quaint Netherlands

Here are two interesting shots from Holland. I don’t really have much to say about them, other than they are two of my favorites.

Angry German Tourists

While I was looking at these angry German tourists in Amsterdam, I could not help but think they look like most German tourists.

After watching these two for a moment, it occured to me that it is difficult to know the difference between an angry, severe German tourist and a regular German tourist.

Reflections of the Excelsior

Here is one of the Amsterdam canals by night.

Thanks to Andrew Sullivan

Thanks Andrew for the mention on your cool blog… I’m honored. I offered to let him use the picture I took in his upcoming book, but I think it has already gone to print. I guess we just met too late.

Anyway, here is another trippy picture of Holland for Andrew; I know he had too many space cakes, and perhaps this is the passed-out-view he saw every morning when he awoke.

Holland on a Sunday Afternoon

I arrived to Haarlem early in the morning and managed to capture the Grote Markt empty before Sunday services began. This is the same church where Mozart once played the famous pipe organ inside as a child.

Sunday Afternoon in the Netherlands

And here is a shot of the inside.

This is Eva

Eva’s dream is to finish business school and then figure out what to do with her life.

Eva is currently in Amsterdam on a dinner cruise with her boyfriend. She wants to get married and have a little girl. Her boyfriend smiles and nods.

Evening Falls in Holland

This was shot about 8:30 PM as evening fell in a pastoral and quaint area of the Netherlands. The farmhouse and windmills were painted with bright pastels, made even more potent by the setting sun.

Red Velvet

The famous Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam has been temporarily converted into an art show all about fashion. They draped red velvet all over the place to make it look more artsy and less churchy. Although I don’t think it really worked, but at least it made for an interesting photograph.

Dutch Windmills from Across the Lake

Some people in Flickr did not like this one… but I do. I think it is nice and sort of a mix between a photograph and a painting.
