City Canals.1

Yes, a new series to illustrate a new home. Apparently about 15% of the area of the Netherlands is water (e.g., the above), and currently more than 25% of that is below sea level. More than 50% of it is less than 1 meter above sea level, according to our friend Wikipedia. What do the Dutch do with all this water? This series will show you, rather than telling you! Enjoy…and it’ll have a partner series at some point, Country Canals, once my bike rides start ranging further afield… 🙂 As usual, these photos will have names that tell you in direct words what it is, so you can look it up on a map finder if you wish. Amazing, that. They’ll also have tags and categories so you get a sense of the city or region, etc.

    Hi Paul! Another lovely pic! And in Rembrandt Part! How appropriate! Are those ducks in the shade of the tree?

  2. Wonderful, Paul! I really look forward to the new series, especially the country canals once you go farther afield!

    Love these photos. Especially the two Sphinx in the park. Wondering if they were the entrance to a royal palace?
    Great blog! 👍
