Photographer's Note

Weesp is a small historic town east of Amsterdam, on the river Vecht. It was once fortified, and several of the bastions, moats and forts still survive. In the Amsterdam region, Weesp is the nearest small town that has survived as an independent entity. It is only 3 km from the end of the Amsterdam metro, but the wide Amsterdam-Rhine Canal keeps it geographically separate. Weesp is a rail junction, and very easily accessible. The town is surrounded by open grassland and has a population of around 18, 000 inhabitants.
This is the towns 15th-century church, Laurenskerk, Nieuwstraat. The tower dates from the 13th-century.
