Way back in the nineties… [Living in Holland]

In 1990 I was living in Utrecht in my very own little room in a house with three other people. It was supposed to be a students home, but only two of us were actually students. The two others worked. I lived there for four years starting in 1989. Yes, that long ago!!! This is me reminiscing… Way back when I was younger so much younger than today. I never needed anybody’s help in anyway (sorry, just remembered a song…) πŸ˜‰

It was my first time living on my own in a different city. Away from my parents, enjoying my freedom. And I really did enjoy myself and explored the city on my own.

I lived in a very small room with a view. Not quite the view you want looking outside, but it was my own independend view. I will show you some pictures of my view.

Oh, and when you start looking at these photos. These were made by me when I was taking photoclass (or lessons; I don’t know how to say it. Sorry!) I wanted to take black & white pictures back then. It’s not that there wasn’t colour photography. No, it’s not that long ago!!!
