Photography Class in Thorn, The Netherlands

I had such a fun Photography Adventure trip to the white town of Thorn, famous for their delicious pancakes! The picturesque cobble stoned streets with flower boxes, flags and whitewashed houses makes it a photographer's dream.

The history of Thorn dates back to the late 10th century. In times past Thorn was a miniature principality with its own jurisprudence and currency. In 1794, the aristocrats fled with the arrival of the French. The French claimed a tax based on the size of the windows, which the poor population, often living in large houses formerly belonging to wealthy people, could not afford. So they bricked up many windows and tried to cover up their poverty by whitewashing their houses.

Here are some of my favourites from the morning... of course we finsihed with some delicios pancakes, we ate them all up so quickly we ALL forgot to get a photograph!! It just means we will have to go back again.... :)
