Freya heeft haar fiets neergezet en doet de deur open.
Esther vraagt zich af of de tweelingkar erdoor past.
Ik maak een foto.
De Lessepbuurt in Zuilen (nu Utrecht), gebouwd in de jaren '10 voor de arbeiders van het Werkspoor. Destijds riante gezinswoningen, nu leuk voor alleenstaanden.
De wijk wordt grondig opgeknapt en begint er weer prachtig uit te zien. Zelfs al zijn de spijltjes op de ramen op de ruit geplakt en zijn de zijkanten van de dakkapellen van zink.


Freya parked her bike and she is opening the door.
Esther is wondering whether the twin pram will fit through.
And me. I am taking a picture.
De Lessepbuurt in Zuilen (now part of Utrecht) was built in the 1910s for factory workers. At the time they were great for families, nowadays the size is deemed more fit for single people. The neighborhood is thoroughly renovated and they're doing a great job, even though the old fashioned windows are really large panes with strips of wood glued on o them... and the sides of the dormers are inexplicably sink instead of wood.
This is the top floor - Freya's bedroom is the left one of the two windows.


I did quite a lot of tweaking in Photoshop to make all details stand out - I used Levels, Curves, Selective Colors, Unsharp Mask, Sharpen Edges, Sharpen More. But not all of those to all areas of the picture... I mostly duplicated layers and erased the bits I did (not) want changed.
