Is this suggesting The Dutch are thoughtful folks who weigh everything carefully, Bill?
Bill Phillips: They seem very sensible people who are secretly quite mad
This is a superb composition Bill....petersmile

Ray is so right, we don't have 'cups and spoons' like in the USA, we use scales for measuring food.
I love this shot, love the light.
Bill Phillips: We are the same although my grandmother never weighed ingredients she just knew!

Ah the Moody Blues - fine photo too. Both of their time but I think the Dutch artifacts have weathered slightly better.
Bill Phillips: I played an old vinyl album the other day and it does sound very dated and a touch pretentious. Still, I enjoyed it and then noticed it came out in 1971!

Bill Phillips: Loevestein Philine and I found a nice bits and doings picture grin

I still enjoy listening to the Moody Blues ... the ceramics are aesthetic as well.
Bill Phillips: As I said to Mike, I dug one of my old vinyl albums out and had a listen. It is aa bit dated and a tad pretentious but still listenable
That's great, Bill. It makes you think of an haunted cottage just waiting for something to happen.
Bill Phillips: A shadow falls across the wall, you turn............
Nice bit of B&W still life.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Tom, that's what I thought
Love those Moody Blues. Saw them in 95. Nice picture too.
Bill Phillips: They came originally from Birmingham. Never got to see them live so lucky you

The Dutch are very frugal. They never throw anything away.
Bill Phillips: A good trait in this disposable world Louis

A fine collection of bits and pieces. I like the scales. I like the Moody Blues.
Bill Phillips: I seem to have flushed out a few Moody Blues fans. They were huge in their day
I like how you've caught the light from the window on the plates & scale, Bill. Very nice in B&W too.
Bill Phillips: Tha nks Beverly, pleased you like it
Plenty of 'life' in this B&W Bill....nice one! Good track, too smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martin. They were Birmingham's finest!
They are a very fine set of old scales and bowls.
Bill Phillips: Indeed they are Brian
superbe cette lumière
Bill Phillips: je vous remercie de votre aimable commentaire. Je l'apprécie beaucoup
A back street cafe , a place to weigh out the Coke and sniff a few lines.What next , the Red light district.
Bill Phillips: You are clearly not taking your medication.
Nice shot Bill, I always preferred American psychedelia, the lyrics seemed less naff than a lot of the efforts of British bands. Love's 'Forever Changes' still sounds good to me.
Bill Phillips: I used to like the Moody Blues but it sounds rather dated and a bit pretentious now. The Brummie accent on this track still makes me smile!
Simply superb Bill, one to be proud of.
Simply superb Bill, one to be proud of.
