Monday, Tuesday.

 

As we live near the city of Rotterdam we sometimes visit the beautiful older parts of the city,  like this old harbor.

I made these photo’s last year.

I am not sure if Mosaic Monday will be up again . Mary of the Little Red house who is the host wrote last week they had no internet and power due to Hurricane Sandy. Hopefully they are alright now..

Heerlijk deze beelden van Rotterdamse grachten lieve Rietje, prachtig al de soorten boten en de hele sfeer er omheen.

Vooral de oude binnenstad van steden is altijd zo aantrekkelijk.

Veel liefs,
Josephine

Eerlijk gezegd wist ik niet dat Rotterdam zulke mooie en oud Hollandse plekjes kent! Ziet er sfeervol uit, Riet!

Een fijne week! Lieve groet, Ingrid

afanja said...

Altijd mooi om dergelijke stadsgezichten aan de waterkant te bekijken.
Het weer lijkt er op dat van vandaag, maar de bomen zijn al een stuk kaler.

podso said...

Beautiful photos. I love all the different shades of brick together in the row of houses.

biebkriebels said...

Dit gedeelte van Rotterdam ken ik helemaal niet. Ziet er authentiek uit.

VioletSky said...

I usually think of Rotterdam as a 'modern' city, so it is nice to see there are still these old houses by the canal.

Elna said...

Oh Riet
Your images of Rotterdam are incredible.
I particularly love the yachts and barges, but those houses are real treasures too.
You have wonderful architecture in the Netherlands - I'm envious.
