Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

My entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness as hosted by Leanne Cole. An image of the Maas river and a small part of the Rotterdam harbor industry, which is massive.

Tomorrow at http://leanecole.com.au/blog you can find all the entries for this week’s madness


Holland Amerika Lijn


Holland Amerika Lijn

As i promised yesterday, this post is the original for Abstract Sky. It is a picture of the old warf building for Dutch travelers going to America, hence the name Holland Amerika Lijn (lijn is Dutch for line). It now serves as a hotel and it is very nice indeed to see this old building in between the giant cruise ships and the two towers surrounding this famous building.

Can you recognize the pattern from Abstract Sky? I can’t actually, but it’s probably part of the sky hehe

In between the giants

A picture from the Kop van Zuid, a famous strip of land in Rotterdam. The building in the building is the former headquarters of the Holland-America line, a boat company which brought a lot of passengers from Holland to America. Now it serves as a hotel, while being surrounded by giants.

Southern Snow

Found some oldies from back in New Zealand in 2008. That year i left in the winter here in Holland, got in New Zealand at the end of summer and experienced a bit of winter at the end of my internship – these pictures were made back then – and i came back in Holland in the autumn. So in 2008 i lived through 3 winters. Most people would try and get 3 summers. Because i didnt think about it, i had 3 winters in one year. Oh well.. i come from a town which names literally translated into Winter’s District

Really love the way the snow and the wood interact, whether it’s alive or dead! Hopefully some snow here this winter 🙂
