De Naald van Waterloo / The Waterloo Needle, Baarn/The Netherlands

 

The Waterloo Needle was placed in honor of Willem Frederik, Prince of Orange, later King Willem II. He was the first to repulse the French attack at Brussels (Quatre Bras) in 1815 and held out so long that the Allies led by the English Commander-in-Chief Wellington arrived in time to defeat the French Emperor Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The memorial was established in 1820.

Thanks Dallas and Maurice. For photography late autumn and leafless trees do have their charm. I had to act quickly on this one as I wanted people in the distance for an extra element.

      My wife's sewing room, photographed as is. Lots of great stuff is made here, from fancy Anti-COVID mouth caps to gala dresses.

      On a bicycle ride I saw this great looking Ariel 350cc motorcycle from 1938. Of course, I had to stop and photograph this classic.

      After a few minutes the owner emerged and we talked a while about motorcycles and this one in particular. He told me it's from 1938, he bought it in 1973 from his first monthly salary of 600 Dutch guilders. A modest, very friendly man and a pleasure to talk with him. The engine started at the second kick and sounded great!

      Great looking car, looks original/unrestored. Maybe some damage repaired, notice the uneven gaps between the left front side panel and the door and headlight rim.
