Week 52

We’ve spent the Christmas holidays in a small cottage in the North of Holland.

It is very basic. No running water, Light by candles, heating by wood fire, outside toilet, no current , no tv and no computer. But that is its charm and why we go.

It was dread full weather. Raining and cold. Great weather to sit by a wood fire and bake  potatoes.

All pictures are made with a Leica R6 35/2 and 19/2.8 on Fuji Provia 400

    reminds me of a tiny island in the middle of finland, but there with a sauna next to the “pond”.
