On this Valentine’s Day I visited some courtyards of Dordrecht in the early morning.  A courtyard is usually a place with a number of most small houses around it. Originally the oldest courtyards were meant for sick, elderly or pilgrims. Sometimes it was courtyards for beguines. The later courtyards were only for the elderly and widows. I visited the oldest from 1755 and some other ones of the remaining seven courtyards. I like the early morning light because of the long shadows. This old town is recognizable by the many old houses with facades where time has passed. Even in the shade you will find ornaments that are worth keeping and being photographed.
