When walking to the mountain last sunday (see post of tuesday) I noticed something moving in the grass, it was rather big and brown.
We have no wild animals here, so it happened to be a cat.
But a beautiful one. There are no houses around, only some farms not so close by. So he was a long way from home hunting in nature and had not time to come for a punch of me.

Last Sunday I climbed a mountain recently created in our village Almere Haven. When you live in a flat country as the Netherlands it is always exciting to see something that towers above the ground.
I started to walk up the 32 meters high mountain.
Together with a sheep.
On the top are some seats to enjoy the views around.
And a monument dedicated to the godfathers of our city Almere as the architects, designers and managers.
A view at the colouring autumn woods.
The sheep seem to enjoy the mountain very much too.

You probably think he, I saw this one already in another blog. Yes, you are right, the problem is when you photograph as a couple in a city you often see the same things. Mostly the photos are different but when we see a mural we both think "Monday Mural"! As we don't see so many murals here around we decided to post both the same object today.This one is in Eindhoven at the former Philips company area, where many artists use the production buildings to express their creativity.

Piet Hein Eek (1967) is a Dutch industrial designer. He graduated in 1990 at the Academy of Industrial Design in Eindhoven with a cabinet of scrab wood, which is now called the "Classic Box in Scrap Wood"
In a time of "excess" he chose for simple material and sober design.
I visited his showroom in Eindhoven and loves this coffee table with stools. But his fame has raised the prices to high for me.
The showroom is above the workshop where you can have a look in the production process.
The company moved into a former Philips factory in Eindhoven.
They even make wallpaper with scrap wood design!

Light and shadow along a canal in Amsterdam. We have had our first autumn storm but the leaves are still on the trees. The weather balances between rains and sunshine, so this is real autumn.

The area Almere Poort is an innovative part of Almere where people can built their own houses with their own ideas which provides a colourful different view.
The most bizar house is this one. From the outside it seems there are no windows because the facade is made of translucent material. The owners themselves call them the invisible windows. The light comes mainly from above through three openings. It was built in 2010 and I see it is for sale now since 2014. Maybe it is not so pretty to live in a black box....
