A day spend visiting Haarlem

Anne in Haarlem

This lovely lady is my best friend. Last month we took a day to go to Haarlem to visit the Dolhuis museum. We really liked Haarlem when we went there in summer so we decided to return for the first of our ‘museum-days’. (Next up is Den Bosch, so if anybody knows of a nice museum for us to visit there let me know!)

The Dolhuis used to be a house where crazy people and lepers were put to remove them from general society, and now it’s a museum on the history of psychiatry. It’s interesting to see the mistreatment people suffered and how the science developed, it also has people explain in their own words (through recordings) how they experienced their disorders.

I had brought my Holga with the wide angle lens on it, and these photos are from the same film roll as the lens test shots I took. The weather was lovely sunny and terribly windy.
