The city blues

Amsterdam Damstraat

Empty shops

You see more and more empty shops in the main shopping area's as here in Almere. The rise of internet shops and the economic situation combined made it very difficult for the retailer with shops in the middle segment to keep their head above water. This was a former shoe store. One for weekend reflections as thought and as sight. For more weekend reflections go here.

The changing city in B&W

Not so long ago I showed some photo's from the centre of Amsterdam near the Waterlooplein from around 1967 made with my Yashica D. 
I went back to the same spot. Now with a Yashica Mat and this is the result for the first picture.
The parking place at the Houtkopers Burgwal in 1967
Impossible to get on the same spot but the two little houses at the right you can also find on the photo above a bit right from the middle.
The exit from the Nieuwe Herengracht on the river Amstel in 1967
The same place now.

Bricklaying pavement in the Netherlands

From the factory already laid in a loose connection.
A special machine picks them up and laid them down.
Now a road worker must fill the gaps.
It takes one fifth of the time from the old method laying them all by hand.
Seen yesterday in Gouda at a family visit.
