Oh I love that description Marianne.. new buildings marching on, they certainly are!
Eesh! Those new buildings don'ta appear to have any of the character of the old ones.
Sorry, but I love the olde buildings with so much character - they do the same thing here- whoever designs these modern buildings are not very creative - maybe just cheap. Sorry, but I love the character of the olde like Revrunner said.
Gelukkig blijven deze bruggen in het straatbeeld bestaan!
That is an interesting drawbridge. It would be fun to watch it open.
These little draw bridges are my favorite ones in The Netherlands.
I like the downtown view better. there's more life thee...people who are going about heir business.
You have a wonderful city for a variety of images.
My dad would no doubt know these locations well. Good shots of the city!
Lovely photos.Your fair city is on my list of cities to visit, especially given my interest in bicycling.Peace :)
