Photographer's Note

This is the southern pier of the entrance to the port of Scheveningen, near The Hague; Netherlands. Ships from the northsea come here to bring in their goods. See the link at the bottom for the exact location.

I come here once or twice a month for over a decade or so. In that time, this place has never changed. I like it here because its quiet: the waves and the wind make more noise than the people. The walk from the shore to the lighthouse is about 10 min. Its a good place to be lonely and to slow down for a while. I just sit on the dock of the bay, watch the fisherman and blend in. I've never taken anyone with me to this place. Its mine.

Last week the newspaper reported that they want to build skyscrapers and stores and restaurants here. If that happens, it will be the end to my visits. No more slowing down. No more loneliness.

Edit: I went a little overboard with the PP, see the workshop for the original.
