A nice walk brought us back to the Oude Haven with its slipway for historic ships.

Walking to my work, I noticed this nice mirror picture. Of course I shot the picture, completely with you in mind… Location: Delftsestraat.

Confinement glimpse

Walking the dog in the early morning near home. Silent streets, loud birds, nice light, beautiful water that reflects the morning.

I almost always use public transportation in Rotterdam, or walk, or take the bicycle. But lately new types of transport have regularly appeared, electric bicycles, scooters and now these mini cars. A pilot started this summer with these trolleys in the Kralingen, Spangen, Blijdorp and Kop van Zuid districts. About 30 of these are riding here and there and they are called Lev. Everyone from the age of 18, with a valid driver’s license, can use the Lev between 07:00 and 22:00. They are not free, you can find more info here >>

P.S. I had some www trouble so this post was a bit late, sorry!

December 1st theme day “Rainbow”

It’s december 1st! Themeday again of the City Daily Photo community! First on my mind for this theme was the pedestrian crossing in our (shopping) center of the city at Churchillplein. In 2015 they painted a rainbow crossing beside the ordinary crossing to draw attention to sexual diversity in Rotterdam. The unveiling of the pedestrian crossing coincided with the Rotterdam Pride in September of that year. Unfortunately, there are now many works on the square and the shine is a bit off! But who doesn’t want to go “Over the rainbow” now!

Rotterdam is one of the 41 Rainbow municipalities and the fourth city in the Netherlands that received such a pedestrian crossing after Utrecht, Maastricht and Tilburg. The rainbow crosswalk is a worldwide initiative. There is one in Sidney and Brighton, among others.

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
