Walking Westblaak and spotted the light trough the trees, the bus stop, ambiance, I liked it.
Rotterdam was rebuilt after the Second World War, many of the first buildings were for trade and the financial world. This is the entrance to one of those buildings located at Westblaak. Made for a good first impression!
I had to work saturday evening and part of the night. The streets were silent en lonely after december, the month of festivities… I took this picture at the Westblaak. I think it shows the feeling of the evening…
This evening I went to the Cinerama for the latest Star Wars episode! No spoilers, just a small text about the film theatre. Its a cosy theatre located at the Westblaak with currently seven screens! Opened in 1960 en rebuilt in the 1980s. They show both arthouse and mainstream films. Worth a visit!
In the section between two roads there’s a unique landscape for skaters. New opened in 2015, located at the Westblaak and 1.200 m2 big, designed by Finnish skate park and landscape architect Janne Saario, who used to be a professional skater himself. Concrete structures, special polished asphalt and many trees, fresh grass etc. make this skate park interesting for street skaters but also for non-skaters. This part is also a nice place to walk or just sit down!
P.S. This picture and the yesterday’s one are made with a filmcamera, a old Minolta Dynax 5.
