Mosaic and blue Monday.

Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary of "The little red House"

While we stayed in the park in Spain these two doves came visiting every day and they were always fighting. That day they were so angry that they didn't see me making these photo's.

      Blue Monday is hosted by Sally of "Smiling Sally"

      These photo's I made in Amsterdam. A real Amsterdam sight:  An advertising pillar and bikes locked together.

Then these next photo's I made in Spain  in the butterfly and bird park. The bird is the pet of this young lady who works in the entrance of the park. She talks to him  and he talks back. When she  miauws he does that too. He goes where she goes and sits  at her desk all the time. Takes your money and gives it to her. LOL. I had to stay a while and take photo's. It was so funny.

Alphabe Thursday.

Anything autumn for Alphabe Thursday so here I go.
Last year, also in October, we visited  friends who live in a beautiful farmhouse in the middle of the country. I made lots of photo´s then and I thought it was  a good idea to put some of them in collages.The weather was  still very nice but the fallen leaves show that winter was coming.  For more Alphabe.

Shadow Shot Sunday.

Through Maggie from "Normandy Life" I found this new (for me) meme  Shadow shot Sunday which is hosted by  Hey Harriet.

Thought I would give it a try.

 These photo's I made when we stayed in the Ardeche in the south of France a few weeks ago.

       I made this photo in a little medieval village called Loriol.

      Our hotel was here at the foot of the mountain in the village  Le Pouzin. Beautiful.

This evening while having dinner with our grandchildren we saw these different skies in about 45 minutes times.
First the rainbow , one very clear and there is a very soft one next to it. A bit later, sunset with dark clouds and the last one our 12 year old granddaughter made when it was dark.

Outdoor Wednesday.

Amsterdam part 2.

Today I am showing you more photo's of Amsterdam, today not the canals round the centre where later  the rich lived but more of the old centre where Amsterdam was founded round the 13th century. It started its existance as a little fishing village and draws  its name from the river Amstel. There are not many houses left of that time  because houses were built of wood  and easily got burnt until it was forbidden to do so.

                Lovely facades on those narrow houses. Little boats in every canal in Amsterdam.


Did I mention bycicles?

café near the market

for sale.

All for sale on the Nieuwmarkt.

On the back  is the St Nicolaaschurch.St Nicolaas is the patron of the men at sea and many churches are called after him.

It was a beautiful sunny day so everywhere the terraces in front iof the café's and restaurants were full with relaxing people  drinking a beer or a glass of wine.

'Look at the facades.

Aren't the facades of these houses beautiful?

It was a busy day in Amsterdam. There was a marathon going on so many visitors.

Our world Tuesday.

Yesterday we visited the city of Amsterdam with very good friends. They both have lived here in their youth and come here to shop at least once a month .I am sure everybody knows of Amsterdam. I will show you what I saw.
So we walked a lot, rested a lot and made lots of photo's. We only visited the old centre of the city because that was all we could do on  one  day.There is so much to see in  beautiful Amsterdam. I am going to show you a few  of the  photo's I made now and will show more in  the coming days. These are all made round the world famous canals with their beautiful houses.

You will notice that it is a very busy city and that there are thousands of bikes around as everybody in Holland owns one so also in Amsterdam with its many students. I will show more bikes next time.

This is the famous Westerkerk (Westerchurch) in Amsterdam.

Pink Saturday

Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly of "How sweet the sound" Thank you Beverly.

I had to look good to find some pink pictures for today. But I found some and made a collage. All flowersin Spain  and that one very old street in that very old town in Spain where I saw that pink house. Look how narrow those old streets often are , a truck can hardly go through it  and when you walk in the street and the truck comes around you better get your back to the walls or your feet are not safe. :)))

PLease click once or twice on photo to enlarge.
