Shot yesterday.
City of Zaandam, close to Amsterdam.
Recently the centre of the city was braught back to the style of earlier years. A canal that was layed dry in the 1900's was dug again and gave back the old feeling of a harbourcity.
Inntel hotels built a new hotel, with the a collection of old "Zaanse" style facades, all in one building.
Even the new Townhall was built in the same style.
It's a wonderfull display of nostalgia in a modern setting.

Beautiful facades, great graphical effect, nice color combination


This is a POV that I like and highlights these originals architectures.
The light of noon gives interesting shadows that play with the shapes of facades.
Graphical and colorful work.

Hallo Joop

I like this a lot. Impeccable sharpness, good graphics and nice repetition of patterns shapes and architectural designs. Also a very nice warm cold colour contrast between the red and blue colour hues. Tfs!

Hi Joop, thanks for showing us some more of this fascinating place.A funny effect!When I scroll up and down, the striped covers of the windows seem to shimmer!Playing tricks with my eyes.
Excellent sharp quality and a very good PoV.
Tfs, regards Jean.
