Rotterdam (ICM)

A different and impressionist view on the city I used to live and work, now went back to as a tourist and saw it with new eyes.

Maaspoort

I used ICM to make the awning of this skyscraper a bit more abstract.

Skyline

Planning, designing, building. That's what's happening in Rotterdam, even today two large cranes are at work.

Skyline Rotterdam

De Rotterdam

An immensely big building by Rem Koolhaas dominates De Kop van Zuid. By using ICM the three parts seem to have a different height, which is not the case, reason of which I used a second image to emphasise this effect. Exposure 1/30 F/22 @ 24 mm.

Hotel New York

How many people will have spent their last night in this hotel to check in the next morning at the SS Rotterdam and sail for New York? It survived bombing in May 1940 and survived destructive renovation plans in the eighties. The hotel is now surrounded by tall skyscrapers with complimentary colours.

Erasmus Bridge

Disused hall

I still have to find out what this is, or was, as I can't find it on the web. Anyway, the facade of this dominant building sporting two large chimneys was in the shade which did beautiful things with the colours. The windows partly reflect the boat I was on. Exposure 0,7 sec F/8 @ 116 mm.
