Rainy Rotterdam

2010, Photography

With a couple of photographers we went to Rotterdam, the largest European harbor city, today. I decided to pack light and only have the GRD3 with me. It was however a very rainy and windy day.

And I promised myself not to photograph the most photographed bridge of Rotterdam. But since the conditions were not really adequate for street photography I eventually took one of the Erasmus bridge.

  1. Wouter, I have become a fan of “pack light” [as in weight, not EV] also. A GRD is about my limit, I can’t quite bring myself to only use a phone camera. I like the graphic quality of your bridge image – nice.

  2. Wouter, I’ve taken so many photos of the bridge that it’s embarrassing 🙂
    I like your shot of the elderly couple watching the world go by; there’s also a nice movement blur outside the train window. Even the desolate metro entrance says something about the conditions which you had to endure.

  3. hey WOUTER

    1. There have already been so many photographers proving their point that the camera is just there to record something you see. Winogrand and his Leica M + 28mm, Daido Moriyama with his Ricoh GR1. Simplicity takes the strain of learning a camera and frees you to learn and see.

  4. Hi Wouter-
    I patiently wait for your posts and I am never disappointed. The image of the two people on the train is priceless. Thank you for sharing.
