A romantic notion

    Not the rolling hills of Tuscany, or the lavendel fields in France - but their northern cousin comes close. Hyacinths for the flowerbulb trade, in the 'bollenstreek', where half the worlds flowers come from, apparently.

      Great colors.
      La composition est sympa... les pieds dans les fleurs, la maison du bonheur.
      (i try to translate : feet in the flowers, the house of hapiness)
      Nice shot.

      A well thought-out composition with wonderful colours. Derelict buildings are hard to come by in Holland I would imagine.

      Thanks for commenting!

      @fredlab: merci beaucoup! That's a nice saying.

      @mimivk: indeed, this is a very unusual house. Also because the two different diagonals are a rare sight here.

      The fragrance! !
      I imagine that seconds after taking this shot you were overcome, fainted and had to be rescued by parmedics wearing gasmasks.

      Just looking at it makes me swoon.
