Postcard of my photos of Zoetermeer in The Netherlands

 Zootermeer is a new town constructed on top of an old farming village between Den Haag, Gouda, Leiden and Rotterdam in The Netherlands. It’s almost the definitive South Holland suburbia, typical in that much of the land on which the estates have been built is 5m or more below the level of the North Sea. This situation is maintained by continuously pumping water up to the canals and dykes.  The rectilinear style of late twentieth century urban architecture predominates in various configurations; circular features are extremely rare and just placing another square element at 45 degrees to the grid appears rebel!
