Several of the buildings that we see in this view of Willemstad, Curacao are heritage buildings dating back to as early as the 17th century. They were built by the Dutch who were the colonial ruler of this island and the other islands known together as the Dutch Antilles. As we were told by our guide in Curacao, the Dutch Antilles have now been dismantled, and the individual islands have either already established are are in the process of establishing new relationships with the “mother country”. The core of Willemstad has been declared a heritage site by UNESCO because of its still standing Dutch colonial buildings. Shot with my Nikon D7000 and post processed in Adobe PS CS5.
