A Leiden Windmill
This week I'm doing a series of posts on Leiden
, a quaint city 25 miles (40km) SW of Amsterdam. It happens to be Rembrandt's birthplace (1606).
At the very beginning of our day's walk around the city, we saw this windmill from 1743. I told Donica it was worth the entire trip and I felt I could die and go to heaven right on the spot!
So now, if/when I can find them, I have something new to collect! Wait a few more days and I'll show you another one. :)
I added Photoshop's Mosaic Tiles Texture filter because Holland is so known for it's painted tiles of pretty windmills...and also to give it a bit of a Dutch Master's look on, perhaps, cracked canvas/leather?
Thanks to Wim for sending me a link to this mill called Molen de Valk (The Falcon). You can watch a short video that has an explanation of how flour is made.
