Finally a new picture on the blog! One of the new streetlights on the Coolsingel. This mainstreet had a total makeover. A car lane has been removed and there is much more space for cyclists and pedestrians. In addition, these new street lamps have been installed. A bit 1930s style and of course energy efficient 🙂

Cloudy friday, but its weekend, the city is waiting

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!

Sundays walk are the best! No hurry, nice weather and everybody seems to be more friendly. So I did a nice stroll through the city to the river and walking onto the Willemsplein I noted the museum streetcars or trams. These trams, line number 15, make a tour through the center of Rotterdam with of course an explanation of all the interesting things to see along the way. Nice cars, nice people, recommended!

Cleaning up the drawers and a few boxes with camera’s resulted in a bunch of films, some almost completed, some just a few shots. Here one of the results from a Leica C1 filmcamera, taken in 2019 I think… I have to develope and scan some B&W film’s, soon to follow!

Image taken at the Binnenrotte, near the Markthal.

This one I took a while ago in april, so a somewhat old pic from a somewhat modern building. This building dates from the seventies, had a makeover but still looks a bit faded. But I liked the “Rotterdam building”. Its in black and white, thats my mood the last few months…

I passed this travel agency so many times in the last decades and now I stopped and took this picture. Its closed now, due to the restrictions on travel because of Covid but it looks anyway if time stood still for this spot!

If you want to travel and buy your tickets here, you will find this travel agency at the Kruiskade.

A springtime thumbs up!

Not so long ago I captured this image during a photowalk. That springtime feeling, sun, blossom, light! In black and white, vintage photography look, I like it!

Recently I have seen the address numbers on many buildings very large on the door or on the wall, a new trend and quite fun! With this number nine I start the series of “house numbers” …
