I take a lot of photos from windows; from my own window at home or the views from hotel rooms.

For this week’s challenge I have an old photo, taken from the hotel I worked as an intern in Milan (back in 2008). I loved to see the mountains from the hotel, as this is a view I do not have at home in The Netherlands.

When I was walking through Naarden Vesting some time ago I found this small surprise on the wall of one of the houses, a Dutch poem called ‘this is what the wall is telling’.

I’m not a translator, but I tried to translate the poem into English for the non Dutch followers:

If this wall could tell what he heard and saw
but he says: look up and read this poem
for a moment forget who and where you are, just become
as light that you will lose your weight, float
through space and see what I see: there
there you are, somewhere in between the people

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge

I have been offline for a while, but the weekly photo challenge Edge was the perfect subject to upload some photos again!

edge preikestolenA few weeks ago I was traveling in Norway for the first time and we could not skip the hike to Preikestolen, a steep cliff which rises 604 meters above the Lysefjorden. After a 2,5 hour hike we literally stood on the edge of this plateau to enjoy the breathtaking views.
