Watery Wednesday

It is Watery Wednesday again and today I want to show a bit more of the city of Rotterdam. This is the river "Maas" with its beautiful houses on the side and lots of traffic on it. I made these pictures from the car so you might see a shadow here and there.
Please click on pictures to enlarge.

Nou die foto's zijn toch zeer goed gelukt! Mooi plaatje blijft het, ik rij er regelmatig voor om om even over de Maasboulevard te rijden.

I remember Rotterdam. We were cruising from Amsterdam to Budapest a couple of years ago. Unfortunately we didn't stop in Rotterdam but what we saw from the boat looked good.

Great river shots!

This part of Rotterdam looks very nice ! I have been in Rotterdam in 2002 and was rather shocked that it was a completely new built up city, like the once in Germany thanks to World War II !

Vandaag geen water hoor Riet. Fijne dag!

Greyscale Territory said...

scinating line up of buildings all huddled round the river! And the river is so wide!

Very interseting to look at. Funny that the houses in the Netherlands are so narrow. Quite different from our way to build. Some historical reasone I suppose.

Nice shots...
I was in Amsterdam last spring so my Watery pic is also from The Netherlands...

Weer mooie foto's Riet!
Moet eerlijk bekennen dat ik pas een keer 'n bezoekje bracht aan Rotterdam.
Maar mijn man en onze kleinzoon gingen in alle vroegte op 21 juli van het vorige jaar met de trein om aan de Holland-Amerikakade het grootste cruiseschip ter wereld de Queen Merry2 te zien binnenvaren.
Ze hebben samen een prachtige dag gehad met bezoek aan Erasmusbrug,op de Euromast,en een lunch in Hotel New York.
En Niels heeft prachtige foto's genomen en kwam 's avond met héle verhalen thuis.

Ik moet toch eens vaker mee op pad gaan met die mannen.....

Fijne avond en lieve groetjes.
Ger

Hoewel het platteland me meer trekt, toch altijd wel weer een beetje trots op Rotterdam, uiteindelijk wel mijn geboortestad.
Mooie foto's Riet.
Lieve groet, Marja

The top picture is an amazing panorama! I see what you mean by the old houses - it's lovely to see they've been preserved and not "converted" into modern apartments, the way Belfast's riverside has been developed.

WA HOOOO I was also born in Rotterdam! How fun to see these pictures of my birth land and city!
