Tweede Kamer

Here some photos of the Tweede Kamer (parliament) that I took last December. This is the place where I worked for almost three years.

Lomo Saturday

I made this picture with a disposable camera, during my lunchbreak a couple of months ago. It’s a typical ‘The Hague scene’.

The road to succes

After a long summer, it’s finally getting busy at work. A good moment to post a picture of this funny card. Stijn’s sister Mariska bought it for me (somewhere) in the USA. It was probably used as propaganda material during the sixties by American feminists.
