These photos I would like to call ” Bits & pieces of my city “.
Everytime I go for a walk in my homecity of Antwerp, I end up with some pictures that not go into a theme together and are left on the pc. So decided to collect some of them and just make a leftover post.
All are just random shots from buildings, reflections and more stuff that caught my eye.
Looking up and you will discover new sights, even if the place is very familiar to you.
Our cathedral you can spot from many streets and angles. Sadly she is still in wrappings. In my life I almost never have seen her complety revealed.
Great photo, Peter. Is the cathedral under renovation?
It was, now it are the clockfaces that are done.
I loved looking at these photos for two reason:, one because of the perspective you had on each of the photos and two because of it being an inspiration for me to look at the “mundane” in our city with a new perspective. I, just like you, have tons and tons of photos that don’t belong in any special category except that they grabbed my eye that very moment.
Very niceglimpse into your city which brings me to this question…why has the cathedral been wrapped for so long? Are they not working on it steadily or is the damage so extensive that they are not able to complete the work?
When I was young it was all black and dirty. They started cleaning it, slowly. They did it in stages,when the last was finished, the first part was darker again. So start again. There were some stabilisation problems, it is build on cowhides that had to stabiliaze the wet ground. Last year it was standing in all its glory, new lighting and all. After a few months they started on the clockfaces. And it was wrapped up again.
Wow! It sure looks like it is a never ending project.
That happens to me as well I shoot capture after capture things that catch my eye and when I do a blog they just dont fit so they sit on my computer I started to do odds and ends back in the PB days and I still do it Peter nice pieces of your city I like them all but my favorite is Image #6 Street scene, love the curvature of the tracks and the depth Thanks for sharing
The old city is nice to wander around
I love old cities, some have such classic buildings
Yup, i have ones on Scotland that don’t fit so there will be a similar past🥴
Love these images of your city, sigh some day I will get there.
You are still welcome.
