A few days back. Looking up at the corner of the Meent – Coolsingel at the buildings and trafficlights etc. A sort of NY vibe. Its friday, its weekend, enjoy!
Due to social distance measures, no no long queue at the stops.
There used to be a nice old camera en photoprintshop located at the Meent, a street full of shops, with a small stack of used camera’s. Canon, Minolta and Nikon camera’s that were not so long ago top of the bill but due to the digital age almost are forgotten. Still suburb quality and very cheap! I took this picture back in March 2007. This shop moved a few doors into the street and is now a only a photoprintshop, digital and analogue!!
Every country has their own kind of mailbox (brievenbus) and this is ours. A redish/orange colored one. There are two drop-in openings, one for local mail and one for the rest of the country or abroad. There are about 25.000 left in the Netherlands and about 339 are located in Rotterdam. And you can find the photographed one at the Meent, beside the former postoffice. I still use the postal mailservice regularly to send but receive almost nothing besides bills per postal services 🙂
This morning while walking trough the still quiet city centre I spotted this woman in her little place in the sun. She enjoyed the moment before the city woke up again. Sunday at its best.
