Photographer's Note

Here you see again a very special castle just outside Nijkerk: we call it the Hammetje, named after the man who built it mr.Ham.
He built this without any tools or drawings or knowledge of constructing such a building; this had to be a prostest to the city of Amersfoort that was expanding towards his land.
It is a pure fantasy like Gaudi in Barcelona, and built over several years. Nowadays the city of Amersfoort has conquered the area and the latest houses were built only 20 meters away from his house, castle, lake and territory.
The man himself died two years ago

At this site you can see more pictures of the terriotory.
