What I saw Easter Sunday, Amsterdam 2009
Christian Huygens was a Dutch physicist who
studied time pieces and optical devices. His accomplishments include discovering the first moon of Saturn, Titan. This commerative tile work honoring him is on Leidsestraat, usually in shadow but I got lucky this day. Since it's at the second-story level, it largely goes unnoticed by the shopping hordes passing below.
