Countdown to New Year 2018

photo all rights reserved by B℮n

The countdown has started on several websites and in some parts of the world 2018 has already started. The Dutch New Year Celebrations would not be complete without eating typical Dutch oliebollen oily balls, deep-fried balls of dough covered with lots of icing sugar. At midnight we drink a good supply of Champagne or wine to wash them down. You can can buy them this time of year at the street vendors but do be prepared for a queue on New Year’s Eve. When the clocks strikes 00:00AM Dutch people toast on the "Happy New Year" with another quick drink and leaves their homes to go outside with large stocks of fireworks. The curtains are open tonight because we do not want to miss the fireworks. The oliebollen and fireworks are to ward off evil spirits. Outside it’s a madness around the streets and canals. New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam is frequently likened to a warzone by unsuspecting visitors and accidents do occur, so always proceed with caution. Many Amsterdammers will retreat to a house with a roof to enjoy the fireworks. The next morning the streets are very quiet and all you can see is a dark red carpet of burnt-out fireworks. On the 1st of January many brave swimmers will go for a short New Year’s dip in the freezing North Sea.

Last sunday afternoon I walk in my Jordaan neighbourhood and made some beautiful photos of the snow. The virgin white carpet of snow is crunching under my shoes. I began to remember why I love the winters so much. Photo taken at the Palmgracht from a snowy car roof. The curtains are open tonight because we do not want to miss the New Year’s fireworks. Wishing you much happiness today and throughout the New Year. Hopefully a year of photographic and new inspiration!

Het aftellen is begonnen op verschillende websites en in sommige delen van de wereld is 2018 al begonnen. Onze aftelling begint op oudejaarsavond. De gordijnen staan open vanavond want we willen het vuurwerk niet missen. Het national aftelmoment vond meestal plaats bij het Oosterdok in Amsterdam. Dit jaar zul je iets verder moeten lopen, naar de Kop van Java. Veel jongeren zullen de stad in gaan waar grote dans feesten zijn georganiseerd. Ze dansen al het ware het nieuwe jaar tegemoet. Andere zoeken juist thuis de gezelligheid op met vrienden en familie. Trakteer jezelf en andere op een lekkere oliebol en drink het weg met de bubbels van champagne of een wijntje. Oudejaarsvond is niet compleet zonder de oliebollen en appelflappen. Voor de vroege vogels en bikkels onder ons is er de traditionele nieuwjaarsduik terwijl de feestbeesten nog hun roes uit slapen. Op 1 januari kun je bij het strand Sloterplas in Amsterdam Nieuw-West het water in duiken. Het startschot is daar om 13:00 uur. Je kan natuurlijk ook met de trein naar Zandvoort rijden voor de oudste en bekendste nieuwjaarsduik van Nederland. Hier alvast mijn beste wensen voor het nieuwjaar en maak er een mooi fotografisch jaar van!

San Francisco, California – USA

Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral.

Old Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception is a proto-cathedral and parish of the Roman Catholic Church in San Francisco. The cathedral is located on the corner of Grant Avenue and California Street. The church is named for Mary, the Mother of Jesus, under the title of the Immaculate Conception.

Old Saint Mary’s was built in 1854 as the first cathedral of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. It is the first cathedral in California to be built for the express purpose of serving as a cathedral, although other churches in the state served as cathedrals before it was built. It was used from 1854 to 1891 as a cathedral and was replaced by the first Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption, as the archdiocese was in need of a larger space for the growing number of Catholics in the area. In 1891, Old Saint Mary’s became a parish church, still using the same name that it bore as a cathedral. The new St. Mary’s Cathedral was located at Van Ness Avenue and O’Farrell Street.

Under the clock face of Old St. Mary’s appears the words: "Son, Observe the Time and Fly from Evil" (Ecclesiasticus 4:23). This sentiment was aimed at the men who frequented the surrounding brothels in the 1850s.
It was in front of Old St.
Mary’s that Emperor Norton I collapsed in 1880, on his way to a lecture at the California Academy of Sciences.

Old St. Mary’s survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, only to be gutted a day later by the fires started by the earthquake. The fires were so hot that they melted the church bells and marble altar. All that was left was the exterior brick walls and the bell tower. The renovation of the church was completed in 1909.

The church further expanded and built an auditorium, a library and a lecture room and used that space in the future to host events for the servicemen and women of World War II.

Old St. Mary’s remains an active parish of the archdiocese, and serves the Chinatown and Nob Hill communities of San Francisco. Old St. Mary’s Church is a California Historical Landmark. The Paulist Fathers have served Old Saint Mary’s since 1901, and continue serving there today.

In 2011-2012, the church went through further renovations, during which time all the crosses on the roof were removed as it was restored. While the four crosses along the sides were put back up, as of September 2012 the cross in the middle has not returned.
