Eye Amsterdam

Yesterday I visited the Eye Film Institute in Amsterdam. It was wonderful being able to see and photograph this beautiful and innovative architecture. If you love architecture or movies, it is an absolute must to visit Eye. The most breathtaking part of Eye is the enormous restaurant which gives you an almost panoramic view of the IJ river. You can see the ships passing by while you have lunch or enjoy a coffee.

For this photographs i’ve used a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens on my Nikon D90.

Beeld en Geluid Hilversum

Last Saturday I visited the Beeld en Geluid Institute in Hilversum, The Netherlands, which is a interactive exposition about media and television and contains 700,000 hours of audiovisual material, which goal is to preserve the rich audiovisual history of The Netherlands.

The institute’s building is also an architectural eye catcher, the many facades of color and straight lines offer unique views and amazing perspectives. The building is designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects, who also designed buildings like the Scheepvaart en Transport College in Rotterdam.
