Let me introduce you to the part of my neighborhood that is the Westerpark. Part park, part cultural center, with plenty of options for leisure (former and restored gas factory buildings). A sanctuary to fall back on, for your quiet place in the middle of town.

After leaving the supermarket this evening, I felt it was just too nice outside to go straight home. Quickly I turned myself around and pedaled two blocks to ooze into the park. I sat my ass in the grass, then fell asleep for half an hour. That helped.

Upon leaving, I stopped to have a look at a few installations of the public outdoor art exhibition “Homo Urbanus – Homo Sapiens?” by Lithuanian artists. So, standing there, I couldn’t help but take out my camera. However intruiging the art was, soon enough my lens was catching other subjects (surprise, surprise):

I’m sure you’ll forgive me for this display of live bike art ;-).
