Bakenesser Kerk
1024x768 2560x1920
This is the 15th century Bakenesser or Onze Lieve Vrouwe church. The tower of this church was origionally ment for the Grote or Sint Bavo church, but was to heavy for the pilars to support it. The tower was removed and rebuilt on this church. The Bakenesser church is hte most impressive church in Haarlem because of its construction, tower, decoration, art, and the chromatic carillon with 26 bells weighting 419kg. The Sint Bavo has 47 bells but the Bakenesser has u much richer and fuller sound. This because of the larger weight per bell and the tower being a stone instead of lead covered wood. This church can only be visited on appointment,

Shafts of light grase the corners of our rooms

The light shaft is comming through a hole in the ceiling and shines down over the stones of the hallway wall. The light can get down because one of the wall was opened up to get plumming on the first story of my home.
Sint Bavo
1024x768 2560x1920
This is the Sint Bavo or Grote kerk in Haarlem. As you can see the tower is almost identical to the one on the Bakenesser church. The main difference between them that this is the lighter version because the stone tower was too heavy, so it was replaced with a wooden tower covered with lead based on the same design.

A photograph of the Spaarne river when it was snowing. This shot was taken from behind the window at ITsec -- the company I work for -- from the second story. Because of the lighting settings of the camera the colours seem very hard to enhance the wintery feeling.

Wetbend
1024x768 2560x1920
To get running water upstairs the plumming needed to get from the hallway into the front room and from there on up. Inorder to get from the hallway to the front room it had to pass under the wall, through its foundation, around the sewage pipe, around a small under floor wall that support the floor, and finally get into the wall. To do this 12 bend where needed, can you spot all 12 off them?
