Erasmus in green

This green Erasmus is a faithful copy of the bronze statue of Desiderius Erasmus by Dutch sculptor Hendrick de Keyser, that first stood in the Grote Markt in 1622.

You can find him in the garden of the historic 17th century building, Schielandshuis, right next to Tourist Information.

      1. Ahh, so that was it. To be honest I don’t like cellphone photographers because they usually have to go close (as good as many cameras on the phone are these days many are either not good enough or the operators don’t know what they are doing). :-/ Yes, I’m a snob (although my camera is probably quite a bit cheaper than many of the cellphones intruding on my subjects).

        1. I usually give people a while to move out of shot, and if not I do my best to make a shot with them. As it happens she was very much orange-coordinated, though I didn’t really appreciate that at the time.
