Private collection, Wassenaar, Holland

No joke. This is really known as the smallest house in Delft. Historically this house is known to have been the residence of the private Doctor of Hollands first offical Political leader, Prince Willam Van Orange. Who by the way, was assassinated just about 80 meters down the street. (I guess the Dr. was out playing golf or posing for the statue of him which is shown on the pink wall, typical isn't it.) Back to serious business, I like the orchestration of all those angles on the facades of these buildings, and the way the light hits them, causing the reflections on the windows.
