The previous day we had been told to wait until the next morning to see Delft’s ‘Old’ Church because sunlight streaming through its many stained glass windows made it extra special.
But the morning dawned with a dark sky making the prospects for sun streaming through the windows seem bleak. Fortunately, by the time we had breakfast and made it to the church the sun was shining lighting up the interior of the church with glowing colours.
I took a mass of photos of the ‘oude’ church – not entirely sure what I’m going to do with them all.
The tomb of an important woman, her marble robe catching the morning light. A grave stone marker from 1598.This is probably the most important grave marker in the church, that of the Dutch painter Vermeer.
