Not many people on the street but I met this person, Karel Willem Frederik Marie Doorman. He was a Dutch rear admiral in WWII. The English name for his rank is Rear Admiral. Known to the Allies as Admiral Doorman. Doorman died during the Battle of the Java Sea aboard the light cruiser De Ruyter. To commemorate him the Dutch Royal Navy, named a ship after him, four times, in 1946, 1948, 1991 and 2015.
Note: K. Doorman, Utrecht, April 23, 1889 – Javazee, February 28, 1942.
I took this picture a few days ago while on a (photo)walk. This square houses a big cinema (the tall white building), a theatre and a few appartment buildings, its the Schouwburgplein. I liked the lines of the buildings and the red (moving) arm of a spotlight, one of three of these spotlights. For now, the square is empty just as the cinema and theatre…
De Doelen is a concert and conference building in Rotterdam. The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra (RPhO) is the main tenant of De Doelen. Furthermore, pop, jazz and classical music are played and the building facilitates the International Film Festival Rotterdam with checkout and information areas and cinemas.
But De Doelen is now also closed for the time being.
Ok, you’re in a hurry and not in the mood for cooking and preparing etc. Then there is a rescue! Here in the city are many supermarkets, some big, some small and some are especially for the convenience of the people in a hurry or with a appetite. Selling one-persons meals, all in or with easy packaging and their promise its fresh and healthy! I took this photo near one of this smaller supermarkets, at the Schouwburgplein, its their side wall with a lonely image of tomatoes, do you feel like buying something fresh? 🙂
This evening I went to the movies, to this cinema, Pathe Schouwburgplein. One of the many cinemas here in Rotterdam. You’ve got the big cinemas like Pathe and the smaller ones for socalled art movies. But also in between, older but cosy. For anyone’s taste there’s one! Why the title of this post? Its the title of the movie I’ve seen, a concertfilm of the band Depeche Mode, for what it is worth, I recommend this movie! Action!
