Moo Challenge #25

The theme for the Make a Moo or Two challenge this week? European Cities. When I think of places I’d like to visit in Europe, Florence, London, Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona immediately come to mind. But I choose Haarlem in The Netherlands instead. Why? Well, for one thing, it gave me an excuse to play with some vintage photos of the city I’d scanned a few months ago. And for another, Haarlem is known as the flower city, which is what Brampton—the city where I live in Canada— calls itself, too ...although anyone checking out my garden would understand immediately that I’m not keeping up with my civic duty.
I don’t know how these moos will look on your monitor because they have a lot of black. But hopefully I’ve done Haarlem justice. The moo on the right shows The Grote Kerk (Great Church), and the one on the left, Groot Heiligland, a street in Haarlem that has buildings dating from the fifteenth century.
