Of course I have to share a windmill...

I started to try to mitigate that snaky line down the path but left it alone. You'll tell me what I should do with it, I'm sure.

I find it a funny addition to a shot that would otherwise be a bit of a cliché (it doesn't get more Dutch-archetypical-scenery than Kinderdijk...)

What that shaky line reminds me of, is a Dutch farmer driving home on his high and rigid black bicycle (with back-pedal brake and straight frame), after a cosy afternoon after church.  But the Old Bols (matured grain jenever) has flowed with abundance and consequently, the tracks of his bike path are a bit less straight than they normally would be.

In other words : that shaky paths adds a possibility for imagination and narrative.
