Just a nice evening sky, taken through the windshield of the tram … not the best picture ever but still quite successful! Hofplein with the Weena, center of Rotterdam!

I’m a bit quiet the last days and have to keep it up with images and some txt! Sorry for this but sometimes live has priority. But here’s a image of Rotterdam city center, Hofplein, with evening traffic caught through the lens from the “Luchtsingel” on my way home from work. I like the lights and colors, hope you do too!

Its almost weekend and as you can see, I’m looking forward! Forward to visit the city, take some pictures, stroll around and (hope so) enjoying the weather. But today still have to workbut after that… About the view, looking south direction Hofplein and the Coolsingel, a main thoroughfare but for the last two years adapted and changed towards a car-free boulevard. This summer we hope to sit on a terrace on the spot where the cars first drove! Enjoy your weekend too!

Walking home from work it started to rain. Autumn is really here! Up in the attic and looking through the window I saw this rainy evening view over the neighbourhood roofs with some of the city centre buildings. I like the mood of this picture and being home, dry, warm and knowing that tomorrow is a day off!

Tired? Take a rest on a garbage container!

Are you tired of walking trough Rotterdam? Then take a break while sitting on this garbage container chair! Last year the city ordered the use of old containers and uniforms for the making of these chairs. These chairs can be found at the Hofplein in the centre of the city.

P.S. Here’s a picture of a real garbage container for comparison

This building started the rise of skyscrapers in Rotterdam

Between 1973 and 1976 this building was build. Architect Piet Zanstra designed it for the Shell Pensioenfonds whom rented it to the Shell Cooperation. 95 Meters high, 26 floors and a parking for 306 cars. After completion in 1976 criticism was fierce and the council decided a stop for building this kind of high buildings. Not for long though and Rotterdam is now renown for the (high) architecture, nickname ‘Manhattan aan de Maas’ (Manhattan along the river Maas).

Luchtpark or park in the air…

The “Luchtpark” or park in the air… A old railway track 2 km long is being transformed into a area with greenery and terraces etc. Now its just a small piece but plans for the next stage are made.
