Euroope, The Netherlands, Zuid Holland, Rotterdam, Kopd van Zuid, Wilhelminapier, Montevideo, World Port Centre, Las Palmas (Nederlands Fotomuseum), New Orleans (slightly curt)

 

A facade of the Nederlands Fotomuseum is shown here. The Dutch Photomuseum is in the former ‘Las Palmas’ veem (harbour storage facility), designed in 1952 by Rotterdam functionalist / modernist architects pur sang Van den Broek & Bakema. It’s a typical and famous example of the ’Nieuwe Bouwen’. The 2009 renovation (preparing it for its museal role) was designed by Benthem Crouwel.

 

(During our last stay in Tavira, I managed to lose my Olympus Fisheye/Lens cap. Well, it ís tiny ;-). But it left a hole in my lens inventory and I finally decided to fill it with a 7 Artisans 7,5mm f/2,8 fish eye. And what a joy it is to use this compact but relatively heavy package of glass and metal.)

 

This is number 1052 of Minimalism / explicit graphism and 242 of Urban frontiers.

Although it is already late September, this juvenile Western Bluebird has yet to fully complete its transitiion to adult plumage. Note the white streaks on its auriculars, malar, throat and breast.

Europe, The Netherlands, Zuid Holland, Rotterdam Zuid, Wilhelminapier, Fotomuseum, Staircase, New Orleans (slightly cut from R)

 

Shown here is a façade of the Dutch Foto museum, once the Las Palmas veem. It starerd its life as the technical workshop building of the Holland Amerika Lijn(HAL). After the HAL stopped its transatlantic operations the building was used as a veem (hardour storage facility) for products from the Canary Islands, hence it’s name.

 

It was designed in 1952 by Rotterdam functionalist / modernist architects pur sang Van den Broek & Bakema. It’s a typical and famous example of het ’Nieuwe Bouwen’. The 2009 renovation (and the ‘UFO’) was designed by Benthem Crouwel.

 

Before refurbishement the building looked like this (in 2005): here.

 

This is 227 of Urban Frontiers and 985 of Minimalism / explicit Graphism

Another slide restoration which takes us to Spain, with a rather nice point of view.

I cannot believe these! I like to sit just inside when I’m visiting my sister & her family. Got some surprising pics on my Canon this afternoon. Hopefully I can edit the raw and post by Tuesday night or Wed!

Saw these in an excellent museum in Las Palmas - Gran Canaria which was dedicated to the history of the island & the indigenous people of the island. This is a photo of a room which is filled with skill of these people. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canary_Islands_in_pre-colonial_times Have been going through old photos & converting the ones that I feel would work in mono. The Nik Collection plugin for my Affinity Photo using Silver Efex Pro is fantastic for processing images to mono & has spurred on my enthusiasm for B&W.

California Fan Palms in Dolores Park (SFO). They are not "manicured" and they have this strange appearance because of the remaining dead growth along their trunks. Scanned from print.Edited in Photoshop CS2.

The light and the clouds were what the beach were all about when I took this shot - I'm hoping that I captured just a very small part of it...
