Delft

The Netherlands, Delft – June 2021

The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #152 is ‘Shadows and Shades’. Delft was the first city I visited since we went into the pandemic. It is a beautiful old town, famous for pottery (Delft’s Blauw/Delft Blue), the painter Johannes Vermeer and the fact that here William of Orange was murdered. The light was stunning on this warm and sunny day, it reminded me of the South of France.
