Scenic Sunday.

For scenic Sunday I chose these two pictures I took a couple of days ago when visiting the city of Rotterdam. I took them from the car. My husband was driving. Aren't these old houses beautiful? They are situated in what was a rich part of old Rotterdam.
please click on pictures to enlarge.

Prachtig Riet, dit plein in Roterdam, schitterende huizen. Trouwens knap gelukt de foto's al rijdende genomen. In Sneek heb je ook een aantal gedeeltes in de stad waar van die mooie huizen staan, en Amsterdam natuurlijk, daar kijk je ook je ogen uit.

Fijne zondag,
Lieve groet, Josephine

Oh Riet Sweetie...
I adore these homes. They are just exquisite. So detailed and beautiful. Can you imagine what the insides must look like? I would love to see in one of them. (Why didn't you just knock on the door and ask if they minded if you took a few pics for your blog?) Ha! Ha! Ha!

I noticed someone has a very tall ladder up to the top floor. What were they doing replacing a glass or moving something in?

Thank you for sharing sweetie. I adore this post. So beautiful for sure.

Have a great day sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

They really are very beautiful...but no yards! How do people live with no yards?

You captured the building beautifully. It looks like a gingerbread house :-)

Ger said...

Mooie foto's Riet!
Denk op dit moment terug aan het pakje oude postkaarten met vreselijke beelden na bombardement van 14 mei 1940 wat ik vorige week zat te bekijken...uit de doos met kiekjes van opa.
Wat een enorm bouwproject moet het geweest zijn om de verwoeste stad als Rotterdam weer op te bouwen.
Lieve groet,
Ger
