The photo's I show you today are not the sort of photo's I normally post on my blog. However, there is something about Rotterdam's harbour area that I find hard to resist. Even on a cold and rainy day, when the whiteness of the buildings and The Swan, one of Rotterdam's major bridges, looks impressive against the dark grey sky.
After visiting an exhibition called 'Celebration of the photobook' in the photo museum on 'de Kop van Zuid', we walked along the quay's and admired the beauty of the old warehouses, the boats, and the view of Rotterdam city centre. I like the way old and new blend in together. Most tourists visit Amsterdam when in Holland, but I can assure you that Rotterdam has much to offer. We don't have any canals lined with 18th century houses, but we do have our harbour and a modern city centre with great architecture and much atmosphere!
We ended our walk in one of the café's that are situated on the quay and watched the ships go by.
Wish you all a happy weekend!
