Side buildings of Fraelemaborg Manor, Groningen. Holland
Now a museum, built in the 17th century.
Sorry, I couldn’t come closer to get the doors in the capture.
Also, even though there was not a sign “forbidden to walk on the grass,”
grass is considered (almost) “sacred” in Holland.

For Makro-Tex was not sure what was meant with “Seasons” – to me this included more than one.  So the photo above is for Fall, the flowers for Summer, the deer display for winter.

A church window in a small town in Holland, Lunteren,  where we lived for one and a half years, and our first experience living in a forest.
It was a breath of fresh air, leaving a too busy life.
This reflection and the next image, remind me
some windows of time are so short, like a sizzle.
Grab it quickly before the window closes:)

  1. Hi, Jesh. I love that sizzle in the sky photo of yours. It has me thinking of the hind end of a dragon as it soars forward. 🙂 Love your deer photo, too. He looked like he was checking out his human neighbor.


  2. Great reflection and I love the deer photo!
    I lived in the appropriately named “Bucks” County Pennsylvania for years but I was never able to capture such a wonderful deer photo.


  3. Jesh – love your mid-December musings – an eclectic mix of photos. I am amused by the observation that grass is almost sacred in Holland. Then what is the point of the table and chairs on the lawn? That is quite a set of antlers on that buck! Enjoy your weekend!


  4. Wonderful photo of Fraelemaborg Manor and a beautiful sky shot. But your photo of the deer is my nr. one today.
    Actually I don’t know a lot of sacred grass fields overhere. I’m affraid I will have to consider that as ‘fake news’ …
    I hope you’ll have a wonderful weekend.


    1. Thank you – my brother lives close to Veendam – will come by later to see your skies, because I’m painting – there might be more signs where I lived – in cities like the Hague, etc.Of course “sacred” is heel erg overdreven:)
