Montelbaanstoren, Amsterdam by Bettie Klomp…


Montelbaanstoren, Amsterdam by Bettie Klomp…, originally uploaded by Leighton Cooke.

…as, once again, I spend a lovely Friday afternoon in Bettie’s Atelier Galilea in the heart of the Jordaan, on the Eerste Leliedwaarstraat. I’m going to take a picture of this tower to see how it looks now. Bettie is a classic Dutch landscape artist with an eye for the beauty of Amsterdam. The summer has finally arrived here and some Swabian friends brought a very tasty Riesling from Baden, so I’m having a chilled out evening on the balcony. As good as it gets again, listening to Leonard Cohen’s Songs from a Room, my favourite sixties album. All in all a timeless moment.
