City

The city is a collection of albums made in or around cities and villages. Beautiful architecture, parks, or just an odd detail. And an occasional stranger. I love just walking around in cities.


The oldest city of the Netherlands, but unfortunately bombed by the allied forces in 1944. They finished the destruction of the city already started by demolishing the old castle and the magnificent city walls. Why does man always need to destroy?

A quiet winter, except maybe for it’s cold ending. For some reason only pictures from my neighbourhood in Amsterdam, commuting stations and from my office. Find the picture with the IJsselmeer frozen over…

Winter ’17/18


City of Marrakech, city of soeks, medina, Koutabia and smog. Where horses and donkeys are still forms of motorisation. Great food, splendid palaces and annoying merchants. Go there yourself if you can…

The last months I haven’t posted many new pictures. I have a new job, and not much time left after travel to make many pictures. Therefore some pictures from my new office building, and the view from it.  

New Job, New Tower


Sometimes one thinks; why don’t we spend the weekend in Rotterdam? It really isn’t such a bad city. But why does it always rain there?

May days in South Limburg are perfect for a little walking trip. Little rivers, valleys, castles, water mills, ancient churches, it’s all there in walking distance from Valkenburg.

Yesterday people interested could take a peak preview of the art work in the new metro Station Rokin in Amsterdam. The items on the walls represent things found while digging out the station. Oddly satisfying to see an upside down duck, or a (stoned?) upside down shrimp.

I made the same pictures last year, but on April 10. So the blossom is almost three weeks earlier! Climate change is horrible and destructive, but this is a nice present today…
