This month it is two years ago that we moved from Dordrecht (Netherlands) to Banyoles (Catalonia), but I still have lots of photographs of my former hometown to show you. So that is what I will do on Throwback Thursday.
Yesterday I was reading Eric Kim’s article on ‘Spot the Not’ about the difficulties of capturing multiple subjects and still getting clear what (or who) your main subject is. According to his article ““spotting the not” is the idea that one subject in the frame isn’t doing the same thing as the others, (…).”
Then this picture came to my mind. The occasion was a public holiday and a brass band had been playing on the main square of Dordrecht. The band had finished their program and was marching away. Everyone was watching their departure, except this mother and daughter.

In the Old Church of Dordrecht (Netherlands) many centuries’ old graves are still there. As you see, I am not the only one who tries to read the inscriptions and muse on the past.
Every second weekend of September thousands of Dutch monuments, public and private, open their doors for a free visit. A unique occasion to enter buildings you know from the outside, but never could visit.
This picture was taken last year at the Old Church of Dordrecht; I am already looking forward to this year’s event.
