Yesterday I had an amazing day taking a photowalk through Rotterdam, photographing architecture and the sights of the city. One of the buildings I was really looking forward to photograph is ‘De Rotterdam’, a ±149 m high building consisting of three towers connected through a joint supporting base. ‘De Rotterdam’ was originally designed by architect Rem Koolhaas in 1999, the construction started in 2009 and finished in November of this year.
This is such an amazing structure, the view looking up and around the building is fantastic, from the 6th floor you can look all the way up to the sky, the use of glass in ‘De Rotterdam’ is simply breath-taking.
Currently I am working on a new series of photographs, featuring architecture in my home city Amersfoort. The target is to show the viewer my photographical view on the city. Yesterday I started with the new Eemplein and the area around the central railway station. Here you will find the first photographs of this new series. Featured in the photographs are the new Eemplein, an office building near the central train station of Amersfoort and the headquarters of Friesland Campina. These photos are taken with the Nikon D90 and a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens.
Several weeks ago I moved to my new home in Amersfoort, which has a roof terrace that offers a great view over the area where I live. While sitting on the terrace in the evening, I had the idea to take photographs with my tripod to expose the beautiful lights from the city. The second photo even captured the stars in the night sky. Both photos are taken with the Nikon D90 and a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens.
