Photographer's Note

Paying a visit to my old and former hometown Delft when Isabel was in the Netherlands.
Delft is a lovely old town, and houses, among many other old buildings, two really old churches, of which one is called "the New Church" and the other "the Old church". Both are big and have beautiful open spaces.
The first mentioning of the old church dates back from 1246, but they assume that there has been a wooden church on the same site in the year 1050. The church has a leaning tower of 75 meters high, and, if I'm correct, one and a half meter out of balance. That was already noticed while building, so they tried to correct that.

Saw this natural 'fisheye' on the floor and looking in it, I had to think of anamorphic art. Spend quite some time on google to find the right name, I had seen this form once long ago, but could not remember what it was called. There's a distorted drawing, and when you place a cylinder or a cone on it, you can see what is displayed. See what I mean here and here.
