Photographer's Note


Today a very special photo from the old days. A photo that I took in 2005 with my first digital camera.
On the photo you can see Jip and Janneke and their dog Takkie. They are characters from the short children's stories about these next door children by Annie M.G. Schmidt. (1911-1995)
The sublime illustrations to these stories are from Fiep Westendorp.
Annie is a household name in Dutch children's literature. Almost every child was read from her many books in his youth and later read the stories herself. In addition to children's literature, Annie also wrote verses, songs, plays, musicals, and radio and television drama.

On October 10, 1992, this statue of Jip and Janneke and Takkie was unveiled in Zaltbommel by Annie M.G. Schmidt and Fiep Westendorp, who was born in Zaltbommel. The statue was made by Ton Koops

This photo is especially for Joanne and Craig and their new-born son Oakley Wen
