From large to small

I like to stop for a moment when I am in a new place and focus on the small. There is usually too much large to take in but a detail can stick in the mind and put the overwhelming large into perspective. An example is when I walked through the Binnenhof, a large historic courtyard in The Hague (

This is one of the entrances.

This is the vista of the courtyard with interior chapel and lots of interesting detail.

And this is a gilt fountain that caught my eye.

And finally one detail from the fountain.

The unfortunate golden dog sticks in my mind and brings the whole scene to life.
