Jolie architecture pour ce bâtiment, j'aime beaucoup.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. It's very Dutch with the stepped-gable fronts.

As usual, additions to your Windmill series are worth looking out for, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Ray. Thank you.
another fine shot, Ginnie. i like the treatment- gives me an 80s kind of impression
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. I've been doing that a lot lately, haven't I. smile
Lovely and subtle image, Ginnie! Some odd angles on those buildings... very "blocky"!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Those stepped-gable buildings form a cluster of new apartments, many of which are still for sale after several years.

This is a wonderful view from the 'Buiten de Waterpoort'. And yes may 'we' be spared from more devastating tornadoes and storms for a while...
Wonderful picture!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. This was on our way home from your Crazy River Run. It was such a beautiful day, with lowering skies!

I suppose that the hope is that the wind blows Ginnie. I would expect the Nederlands to be quite blessed with wind, being so close to the North Sea.
Ginnie Hart: OMG, Chad. As an Air sign (Gemini), the wind is one of my favorite things about this incredible country! And on that day, it was roaring!
Belle lumière et un graphisme urbain qui ne manque pas d'originalité.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Hihihi, non, Madame ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhhh, really! So sorry! That tells you how much I DON'T know French!!! But now I know, and that makes me smile!!! Merci, kind Lady!

Oh, my first thought was: We are in Nederland again. Your title is very fitting. Two days ago we had very strong autumnal storms in our country, perhaps remains from Irma hurricane?
I love this view!
Ginnie Hart: We have had storms the last few days, Philine, reminding me very much of low-grade hurricane winds. It's actually one of the things I LOVE about the Netherlands!
It has been a bit wet and windy here the last week or two. Nothing like Florida and the caribbean though
Ginnie Hart: Wet and windy here, too, Bill. It makes sense that such a HUGE hurricane would affect us this far east of it!

what a beautiful Friday it is!! i love the over all silvery blue tone to this picture!
Ginnie Hart: The sun is out today, Elaine, after several days of rain and wind. This was taken this past Sunday when we also had sun midst the storms. Thank you.

Très beau!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Anne.
I love the windmill tucked away behind the apartments, I wonder why they don't sell?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. I think they're way too expensive during a time that still isn't totally recovered economically here in Dutchland..
Yes, may there be brighter days in many ways!!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, so, Robin.

I think the mill is trying to hide behind the stepped gable. Enjoy your weekend.
Ginnie Hart: What's strange about this imate, Louis, is that the windmill appears to be right next door to the buildings, but in real life it's not. It's many meters away!

I think I (we) walked around here Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, you did, Chris!
Nice subdued colouring
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.
The gables look so Belgian to me smile I mean Flemish, right? wink
Ginnie Hart: I suppose so, LC. To me they look DUTCH, as in "more Dutch you cannot get." smile

Excellent
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP. [Sadly, there are still unwanted pop-ups every time I visit your site. The other day I was cautioned again by my new security manager. It really makes me hesitant to visit your site, which makes me very sorry.]
A lovely scene.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. It's one of my favorite places on our citadel walk here where we live.
