Photographer's Note

The Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam is over 300 years old. First it was used to supply drugstores with healing herbs. Later on , the university used it as a testsite to grow exotic plants that were brought in by the sailingships. (like coffee, tea etc). It used to be sponsored by noblemen, it was much later on when the commons could buy a ticket to get in.
The dome on the photo is of the old part of the hortus - lot's of steel and brick. Very charming :)
