Jekyll en Hyde


Photo Caption: A speedy exercise today, since the text was wordier and I still had to cram it inside a minute.
The more harder words of these lines are:
droge = dry
vorst = frost (the same word is also used for monarch)
schoon = clean (in Belgium it also means “beautiful”) onbewogen = unmoved (“ongeschokt” (unshaken) is being undisturbed by something shocking)
tekenen = to draw
gelijkmatig = regular / even
Hope this helps!
