'' WIE KANT MAEKEN DAT PERFECT IS
WANT ELCK VOGEL SINGT SOT GEBECT IS ''

Treklens we are in Dordrecht again, and in front of one of the ''richer class houses '' Anno Domino 1625

Being of certain status in those days(even still today)
it was custom to decorate your house acording..like this fragment we see here on the wall , an *adornment*
or*Ornament*
Written in Old Dutch ( and also our South African friends ..like Afrikaans) we read here :
'' WIE KANT MAEKEN DAT PERFECT IS
WANT ELCK VOGEL SINGT SOT GEBECT IS ''
*Wie kan maken wat perfect is
Want elke vogel zingt zo als 't gebekt is*
meaning ..roughly translated in English:
*Who can make what is perfect..Every bird sings his own song to its ability *

Second line on the ornament:

*DIT HVYS IS VAN OVTS BEFEAMT
OP DE HOECK VAN S JOOST IS HET GENEAMT*

Dutch/Afr:
* Dit huis is van ouds befaamd
op de hoek van St Joost is het genaamd*
Eng:
*This house is famous for years
under the name St Joost on the corner*

And all this done in 1625
(Anno Domino - in the year of the Lord)

PP? PS CS3 .. nothing much realy

Thanks for viewing a little part of Dutch history Folks

Regards

John T

I love the detail of the ornament against the brick. My personal choice would be to either include the full streetlamp, or not include it at all. Perhaps just the ornament with the brick creating a border leavning the bottom half of the image as brick.

hi John
exelent crop,composition and details, my compliments
Regards from Serbia, Bane

Hello Johnny,
Its simple and detailed shot of typical Dutch architecture.
Its sharp and well composed shot.
Seems Dordrecht is beautiful and historical place to visit :-)
Well done again dear.

ps: TL is pathetically slow at my end today. Don't know why.

This is a very interesting picture and note. Amazing detail!! Nice to see this part of your history. TFS

Hi John
The contrast and texture of the bricks is most impressive. Very pleasing composition - the lamp post is an extra treat adding to the time history of the image.

Wonderful clarity and sharpness here Johnny! LOVE the bricks! The details are stunning here! Love the stonework! It adds so much to a building!

John I love this one
The text so sharp and clear to read,
How nice this old Dutch is
I notice that they must have used the V for U .. right ?
The half landpost is a good choice , it underlines the main subject
perfectly.
Nice view back in our history

Bonjour John,
Very interesting ornamentica and Dutch history.
I like it.Good symmetric photo. Good sharpness. Superb photo. Bravo !!
Best regards, Zsú

hi john, neat shot with very informative notes, yes every bird is so true, thats why i believe if someone tries hard at something no matter how good or bad the results we must praise them, and if one does get really good stay humble as there are so many more than you who are probably better!
take care,
scott

Very well done John. I like this a lot. Hi John. tfs. Steve

Well organized image and detail here John,
just enough to get the whole picture.
Another original and finely chosen scene.

Hi John,
En ik maar denken dat mijn moeder dat spreekwoord had verzonnen! Ik hoorde dat als kind al.De foto van dit "ornament"is mooi en je bent goed met spreekwoorden die "Irish Proverb"is ook mijn idee!
Bedankt voor deze foto en notities.
groetjes,Frieda.

Very nice decoration.

Hello John,
Clear details and interesting texture, an impression of 3d. The standard lamp is pilot of all and I find a good choice to have included it, my opinion :) Good job my friend. Have a great day

Die teksten in muren zijn altijd geweldig.
Leuk dat de oude lantaarn er aan de zijkant ook bij staat.
1625..... Waar blijft de tijd

Hello John,
Fantastic composition and nice point of view, superb sharpness and very nioce details, very lovely textures and light.

Hi John,

Great timing capturing it with light from right side, and still seeing the detail of the parts are in shadow . .
It's a double brick wall, I've seen this kind of structure by putting combination double bricks and single crossing brick after one layer to another . .
Great design of the ornament . .
Beautifully composed with partial stret lamp to show how old is this environment . . and must be beautiful seeing this ornament with light from this lamp . .
Great shot my friend

Tfs,

Hi frere, this is very nice, sharp, and well cropped. I like the placement of each of the elements in your comp.
Simple and very effective.

Happy Easter :)

Hai John,
Mooie spreuk en het is een waarheid als een koe dat elk vogeltje zingt zoals hij gebekt is,
Mooi bewaarde gevelsteen,
Gr, Jacqueline

Hi John,

Ik heb even over die lamp zitten nadenken, ben tot de conclusie gekomen, dat het precies goed is zo - een beetje extra oude sfeer, maar waar het om gaat is de gevelsteen.

Heel prettige opname en leuk verhaal.

I like this one John, a nice adornment in the brick home. I like the lamp post to the right too, well done. Sorry haven't been in much, thanks for comments on my Nancy photos. She would say as I did she has put up with this clown for 42 years :} ! Don

Great shot, John,
It demonstrates that is easy to take a good minimalist photo, beeing John Tulip.
Superb DOF
