Delft Travel Photographs

You can travel from Rotterdam to Delft in less than 30 minutes. It is just 15km away and even on the underground map. Ever since seeing The Girl With A Pearl Earring I have been aiming to visit Delft – it didn’t disappoint. These Delft travel photographs are some of those taken in a morning there, once I had visited the Vermeer museum of course.

Every tourist shop features items with Vermeer’s famous image, my favourite gift was her face made of lego bricks.

The bird’s-eye photos were taken from a frightening narrow ledge at the top of the Oude Kerk, the Protestant church in the city centre.

All of the shots here were taken hand-held using available light.
