The Story Of The Streets…

The central city area of Zierikzee is full of small winding streets. Houses often date back centuries and some lean in different directions, telling the story of slow subsidence and master builders who managed to keep buildings upright for hundreds of years in spite of it. I took photographs of the streets as I passed through them or passed them by, they make for a colourful, characterful story of a place that has been built up with serious history in it’s bones.

De Blauwe Fee”  in the photograph below translates as “The Blue Fairy”… No obvious reason why, maybe living here is magical?

Loving the contrast between the different coloured tiles and the stone frontage…
