Wilde Hazelnoten Uit Amersfoort! – Wild Hazelnuts From Amersfoort NL! – Gaia Son

Apparently while Gaia was harvesting almost five kilos of hazelnuts that are growing wild in her picturesque medieval town of Amersfoort in the Netherlands, the generally aloof Turkish immigrants were  eager to comment to her about the hazelnuts of Turkey. No wonder!

The top producer of hazelnuts, by a large margin, is Turkey, specifically Giresun Province and Ordu. Turkish hazelnut production of 625,000 tonnes accounts for approximately 75% of worldwide production. Nutella consumes 25% of global supply. – Wikipedia

Sandra Walker RI (Member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour) is an American watercolourist living in the UK and is regarded one of the world’s finest photorealists. I am honored to have caught Sandra’s artistic eye and to have had several of my photographs reproduced by her. Above is a recent watercolor of a street artist mural on Brick Lane in East London. Sandra was also kind enough to include her working photographs used to reproduce this street scene.

According to a Wikipedia article on Brick Lane, a street in East London, England:

It runs from Swanfield Street in the northern part of Bethnal Green, crosses Bethnal Green Road, passes through Spitalfields and is linked to Whitechapel High Street to the south by the short stretch of Osborn Street. Today, it is the heart of the city’s Bangladeshi-Sylheti community and is known to some as Banglatown. It is famous for its many curry houses.
