Trumpet Straat est. 1246, North Holland

Feb 01, 1990

Chartered in 1246 it is sufficient to say the South Holland town of Delft is old. But to say it is also one of the most picturesque towns in the Low Countries might seem unexpected. But streets like Trompet Straat in the old town just ooze more charm than one can almost stand. It is clean, charming, friendly, young, energetic and incredibly photogenic. If Norman Rockwell had been Dutch, this is the town he would have modeled everything on. Trompet Straat merely exemplifies it all. And with the lovely soft open shade allowing light to bounce all around, the street is beautifully lit with solid highlights and warm soft shadows making for something out of a hundred years ago.
