zwart & wit. noir & blanc. black & white

this week  so far in a nutshell. 
many trips to our local beach, a mere 15 min. bike ride thru town and then along beautiful paths thru the dunes. the chalkboard menu/ drawing from a cafe nestled deep in the dunes - was so striking. so dutch.
H loves visiting a local farm with baby goats - here one of the curious moms. outside of his school - this funny ( very 70's era) sign in the pavement which traslates as : hound in gutter. 
we have had painters all week working on the exterior of our apt/townhouse. this is their cart. 
i think oranje  { orange!} might be next.

groen. vert. green

Ended up doing two photo collages for groen as the vintage Mercedes van was just too cool, it needed more attention. H's patagonia fleece & NB sneaks were serendipitously perfectly in sync with the color. plus he was just as excited about all the surf stickers as was his mom. this dutch surfer gets around. (i was just in SB working where  Channel Island Surfboards shop is located. plus Volcom  - our buddy bummy also happens to be sponsored by them) the astroturf step-seat at the back was perfect. the amount of wear & tear & rust reminded me of vehicles in maine.
in the top collage - the canal is right near our townhouse. i run or bike along it daily.
the tractor in the ocean was scooping up shells and dumping them in piles along the sandy beach. (why?) the bikes line the entrance to the beach, hundreds & hundreds of them on a weekend. the beautiful bushes & wall are right outside the entrance to my newly- found yoga studio - yogawise.
