Wandering aimlessly around the various Grachts, shot a few photos. This seemed to catch the aimless part, so time to upload!
It's fun to edit the building photos into terrain maps, and then build the rest of the town with Bryce primitives. The first step is to roatate and distort against a rectangular grid to make the bricks and walls lose the perspective. It helps to start with a clean shot. The two buildings I made were not next to each other as shown, so don't try to find the same spot! :-)
[ Later, and Ed. note ... I should mention that I spent the most time exploring Leiden, Noordvijk, Haarlem, and the Rijksmuseum, and successfully seeking the best Dutch and Indonesian food! I always remember the food, but you might like the rijksmuseum's website.]
Thanks for viewing and comments! Or should I say, "Dank voor het bekijken en commentaren."

Saw the picture before I realised it was yours and thought "looks like jim's" and it was. You have a unique style. Intersting picture. Holland but not quite. Maybe what Holland looks like after partaking of the number one past-time in the Netherlands. I like it!

Ziet er goed uit! Erg hollandse lucht en natuurlijk de architectuur. Petje af ook voor het zelf maken van de huisjes.

Oh, man, looks like a dream-image of Netherlands, taken from the netherworlds. Almost more real than a photo: Hyperreal! But that sky looks a bit Californicated, nicht wahr?

Man this is cool. The camera perspective is cool, makes it look like you used some fancy camera work, but I read it was 1/2 Bryce and 1/2 your clever imagination.
