Skylines (1)

It begins with a walk. No plans. Camera in hand, waiting for something to catch my eye. An ever changing skyline; no two roofs are the same.

A Trip to the Library

I hadn’t visited my favourite building in the city for ages. Too much to do, too little time — at least until today. Just enough time for a quick stroll around.

Empty OBA

I’d like to claim that sometime, just after dawn, I snuck into the library (like a total Ninja fellow) and started taking photographs. The truth is slightly less dramatic… Désirée organised a pre-opening-time insta-meet and allowed us to wander around the building with our cameras.

Sunday Morning

An easy stroll on a lazy Sunday morning. It’s springtime, which means the sun sun is up and about long before most people have managed to climb out of bed. This leaves the city’s streets bright and empty — for people like me.

NDSM – I

Amsterdam’s NDSM wharf is transforming at lightning speed: objects and buildings appear and disappear on a monthly basis. This is reason enough to visit from time to time and see what has changed.

Post Post CS

During three half hour lunch-breaks, in December 2010 and January 2011, I was allowed to climb up through the rubble of Post CS with my camera and tripod. The lifts had long been decommissioned and, especially on my first visit, somewhere between the sixth and seventh floors I began to doubt the wisdom of my endeavour. Fortunately our good friend curiosity came to the rescue and pushed me further up the building and I was rewarded with spectacular views and a strange not-quite silence.

Rotterdam

While busy at Erasmus University’s Woudestein campus, I got a chance to take a look around from a highly elevated vantage point.
