Photographer's Note

Some time ago Lars showed you a picture of the “Holländisches Viertel” (Dutch Quarter) in Potsdam. Built around 1740, this neighbourhood was designed by the Dutch architect Jan Bouman.
The “Clock Gables” are indeed a clear reference to the Dutch architecture as it can be found on the Amsterdam canals. Still, I didn't think this tourist attraction really had a Dutch appearance. It was an attractive and pleasant neighborhood where it was a pity that too many cars were in the way. (See the photo of Lars:

It will not surprise you that I have also paid close attention to the details here and I think that with the first two photos I am doing the TE lovers of doors and windows a pleasure.
The first photo shows in detail the lock on the front door of one of the very well maintained houses.
I chose this photo because of its beautiful sleek geometric composition.

The second photo zooms out and shows a combination of the open door, a shutter and part of the window.

I chose the third photo because it shows a typical Dutch scene. The bicycle is from the Dutch model “Opoe-fiets” - grandmother-bicycle, or Ladies' roadster.
The apple green colour and the basket with flowers can also be regarded as typically Dutch.
