Eric,
Nice fairy ring!  At one time, I studied to be a mycologist.  Sure was fun tromping through the woods looking for mushrooms.

I need a rest: before I enlarged it I thought was looking at the grass at the back of the old school bike shed.

Funny what sticks in the mind...

So, they are opening up the canals, including some brand spanking new tilting bridges right in the busiest traffic route of course. Somebody decided on a daring "alien" design or something along that theme, unfortunately they manage to completely negate any aesthetics with ..., well..., traffic necessities?

I probably going to call it "Iconic Sky" or "Hallmark View" or something similar.

A slightly more flattering angle. Maybe move to the lower left a little more for a better look at the design. However, this may not fit the frontal viewing theme of the project, and it is less of a comment if we're trying to make the bridge look prettier than it really is in daily commute.

After the bridge we're slowly nearing city centre. Of course, this isn't exactly Tokyo, Paris, or New York so we make do with this "brilliant" architectural masterpiece. I'm calling it "After the Crossing" and definitely plan to find out the reason behind the crosses.

From the side view, the bridge looks as if the design was inspired by those "drinking bird" toys.

Where is this monument of esthetic grandeur?

Oscar, where's the problem? It's obviously a hospital.

No, definitely not a hospital, but since every other building in our town is a home for the elderly (usually catering towards a specific disability), it may be service flats for 65+ with possibly some kind of christian heritage. Apartments are up for purchase, not rental, so it is more-or-less open market real estate.

I suppose if you manage to sell your apartment in Mallorca, and fancy a gray and depressing locale to better suit your overall mood, you could consider relocation. ;-) ;-) ;-)

Hi Oscar,

I'm reconsidering selling; the more I see on tv and hear from family, the more it strikes me that the UK is in a slow suicide move that began well before Brexit, but Brexit was, nonetheless, the signing of the self-execution warrant... I sit here and watch the European tv news reports where the various European countries are now competing for the huge London financial markets that will cease to be operable once we have left.

And some of the people seem happy that a handful of other people will either move abroad to follow the money, or just retire... envy and hatred are often rolled into the same little cigarette, and as with cigarettes, that would do you no harm until you light the damned things. I suppose that until we leave there is hope, but which party will be honest enought to declare we need to think again?

Oh well.

Rob

Provided you can make it work financially, I'd support your reconsidering. After my lovely visit to Hawai'i's Big Island last year, part of me wants to find a comfy condo or small house there and then just spend my days snapping and my evenings strumming in relative isolation.  :)

We used to call 'em dilly dally ducks, I think. They were always yellow.

However, as they were yellow, perhaps they are being confused with the conjurors who came aboard the ships in the Suez Canal and did their tricks with tiny chicks under cups. The conjurors weren't yellow - the chicks were. That was in '53; I can't see it allowed to happen in this day and age, sadly enough. Bang! No chicks, no kids watching and no conjuror either, though the ships would probably survive and be good as new after a good scrub.

Thanks, Bob, there's always some human hope, even in concrete.

I was standing here
The bridge is to the left, the crosses on the other side.

I was standing with my back turned to the local college which gave me another epiphany. Let me look up that snapshot...

So in Assen, not Amsterdam, which is the only part of Netherlands that I have visited.
I hope this depravity doesn't spread to the rest of the country.

But well worth photographing.

So this was at the back of me and i immediately thought that if this is where we provide our collegelevel education it is no wonder we churn out robots or "corporate prisoners" so to speak...
