Today (Tuesday) I walked to work through Jerusalem; not the city in the Middle-East, but the neighbourhood in the Watergraafsmeer. All streets here are named for scientists. Why they call it Jerusalem I don't know. It has that typical 1950s suburbian feel to it. Dead quiet, though.
Another quiet place is the Nieuwe Oosterbegraafplaats, the cemetary. The trees here are growing like mad. Must be all the nutrients in the soil…
A dead quiet day at work, too. I walked home from work through Sumatrastraat and spied a hardware shop which hasn't understood yet that it is summer.
The Turkish side winning their matches in the European Football Championship had brought out the flags on Javastraat. In the photo you can count at least six flags and there were more behind me.
In the evening Jaap picked me up to go to the range in Hoofddorp.
I had arranged to meet Mic there. He's just bought a new camera and new lenses, and was selling his old 70-300mm. I bought it off of him. Nice piece of glass. At the range it was also dead quiet. A lot of people stayed away because Holland was playing footie tonight.
Home early, and a full moon outside. When it passes my window I'll try to take a shot with the new 70-300mm. On my DSLR this lens works as a 450mm at maximum zoom, so maybe I'll get to see some craters.
