Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Please click here to see the photograph in greater detail.

Our first impression of Delft, was to stop at a crossing, whilst a huge barge, almost touching the sides, slid through.

There were some alterations underway which meant that all road traffic came to a halt whenever a barge wished to pass.

The halt did give me a chance to get a close-up of the barge as it moved rapidly down the canal. (I just wished the lighting had been better but I won't complain, for the whole experience at Delft was very enjoyable.)

I will add a couple of workshops showing how we were stopped and another of the barge, passing closer.

For your information,the city of Delft came into being beside a canal, the 'Delf', which comes from the word delven, meaning to delve or dig, and this led to the name Delft. I found this so interesting for in English, we have the term 'to delve' meaning to dig into something.

I hope you enjoyed the photographs, Bev :-)
