Doesburg, Holland.

Again Doesburg, I have almost a weekly appointment
over there and it's good to visit a town so much, I discovered
We (the town and I) know each other better and better, and
surprisingly I now look at this town a whole lot different then
I first went to it. Much more intimate so to speak.

Anyway, today I had some more time (summertime) and
manege to do two pieces, the first was horrible because the
light went soo extremely fast, I never thought it would go
that fast, I even measured it somewhat before I started, but still,
I had to tweak it a little at home.
