An opportunity taken

Of course, when one lives closeby a beautiful place like Delft, one hardly ever visits with touristic intentions.

I had a business appointment and decided to use the rest of the afternoon for a sunfilled stroll through Delft.

Sadly for pieter_jan_v, I didn't know what to buy at the many record stalls that were on the Markt square. And that he would've been delighted to combine his music hobby with a VT meeting here.
Maybe another time!

Delf Blue Pottery with a twist

Every time I have to think of that one intro photo that sums up a place. Should it be something recognisable or a detail ?

This time I'll choose for a detail. But a famous one. Delft Blue pottery is renowned the world over.
Here's a modern interpretation.

Google in Delft

While I was enjoying lunch today (Sept. 21, 2010) I saw the Google Earth camera pass by... on a bike!

    Delft is indeed a pearl and I visited it specially as it was Vermeer's hometown. I am very impressed with your thorough tips for so many places - my hat for you :-) Mary

    Beautiful page with lots of good tips. I liked your favourite picture of Delft, it is my favorite too (although all pictures are great but this was the one I liked the most). The view from the tower of Nieuwe Kerk is very nice you should try it next time.
