After digging into my Photo archives, and discovering some forgotten photos taken last summer, this is Family Kiwidutch continuing our wanderings in the Lange Voorhout (July 2010) where Spanish Sculptor Manolo Valdéz is exhibiting some of his massive sculpture pieces.
Yesterday’s posts saw the horsewomen and the curvy ladies with the heavy dresses and puffy sleeves, and in today’s post we see more figures… mostly sporting some rather creative headgear.
Yesterday’s curvy ladies were soft and gentile, todays first photos remind me more of someone running head first into a brick wall and coming off second best.
The second on sports the “Darth Vader” look and the last one is at best, a prickly customer.
Certainly none of them are smiling, or indeed look comfortable to have anything to smile about. Philistine that I probably am, I tried hard to appreciate these but could relate less to them, so for me, the best thing about lingering close to these, were the busking musicians …
(Please Note: Little Mr. ran inconveniently though my best clips, so I can’t show those here, so these lesser offerings are all I have to give you a taste of the ambiance…)
There is a steady breeze which is rather welcome as it was a very warm day by Dutch standards. The avenue of trees giving welcome shade.
Even more welcome was the sight of the Italian Ice-cream van ( the scoops are very small in size, but very good)
