Surveillance

A picture paints a 'probably' Dutch lady of Moroccan decent rounding a corner on the left, camera in hand, cautious eyes with olive skinned beauty - bright in the sun. On the opposite side a Dutch couple of whiter decent stroll down a lane. He, with mobile in hand, glances intently through the cafĂ© window. It beacons cosyness or gezelligheid. Constantly searching for that gezelligheid is the great pursuit. 

Look upwards and you will catch a CCTV camera dangling from a lamp post, forever filming the tourists and skinny junkies that wander by. In Holland caution is a frequented manner of greeting, people should first be scanned. In conversation, eye contact is minimal but surveillance is practical. That's what I see.

Ah..pipe surveillance, Justin that's a Crown Series WO Larsen shape no. 148, its a typical danish style called 'acorn'. These were made about 1998-2000. You can still find them on ebay now and then.

I say, whatever it takes. to catch the bad guys.
As long as they don't put any camera's in my bedroom, I'm ok with it.
