Now, I'm not a huge fan of climbing things—my knees are too troublesome to enjoy it for long—but I do love a good aerial shot. This is of the Stadhuis (Town Hall) in Delft, the Netherlands. I'm guessing it's taken from the vantage of the top of the Nieuwe Kirk ("New Church"), "new" being a relative term as the building was finished in the late 15th century. The building is a hodgepodge of styles, as it was built and rebuilt over the years. I like the contrasting colors in the shot—the orange and grey roofs, the red shutters on the stone building. It makes for a nice pop of color on an otherwise colorless day, something you learn to appreciate after enough winters in Michigan.
