These photographs were discovered in a camera chip that I accidently left in a camera that met it’s demise in the hands of Little Mr. in 2008.
To be fair he was an energetic and inquisitive toddler at the time, who upon the discovery of tablecloths and shiny silver gadgets must have thought all of his Christmases had come at once (although in our case it was actually Saint Nicolas, not Christmas).
In these photos I had gone for a wander in the Hague central city very close to the Binnenhof complex of old and new Parliament buildings.
The new Parliament building was added between the Binnenhof complex of the old Parliament buildings, and the old and highly ornamented Department of Justice building and the joining of old and new is a bit startling from some angles.
There is of course now a far larger Ministry of Justice building not too far away because this building is now far too small for all that is required for a modern day court system in The Netherlands but I have already resolved that this building deserves a closer look once I’m properly mobile again.
The last photo is of a large department shop called “Peek & Cloppenburg” and there are a few beautiful doorways thrown in for good measure.
