Rotterdam contains an increasing amount of great architecture and tall buildings. Old and new blend in seemingly without effort. Last year when i visited friends i took quite a lot of pictures and i still enjoy strolling through these photos. This is one of them, which i ‘rediscovered’. It’s a photo of a reflecting window with less reflecting panels alongside of it. This is the result i got from it 🙂
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
The famous eyecatcher of Rotterdam, the Euromast, has an elevator which brings you up +200 meters in the air while spiraling along the central column. When i first moved upward i was a bit shocked to notice we would turn around the central column. But then i realized that as we were all buckled in our seatbelts, we needed to go round to see the entire cityscape. This is from another time, when we were strolling the city. Took this photo while passing through and found it today. Never edited it before, but i think in this cut out it its actually quite a nice architectural picture..
Wish you a nice weekend in advance!
The infamous Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam has become the icon of the new skyline. Tried to give it a personal touch.
Used this image (https://pnco.wordpress.com/2014/05/16/de-zwaan/) to create this ‘star’. Really love symmetrical photography 🙂
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
