Is a big curtain wall like this proper for an inner city with small streets. The newest buildings in these situations don't have them anymore but for a reflection they are wonderful.
Looking from the other side as the reflection shot from last week. One for Weekend reflections here.

Stand on top of the former Shell Headquarter Tower on the Y and you get a beautiful panorama.
I even see my former office. A little red building behind trees to the left of the photo.
Its a bit pity that the bulk of Amsterdam disappears behind the Central station but its still an impressive view. It only proofs that a subject that wil be photographed makes 99.99% of the photo.

On the place where once the Ajax stadium was situated a mural has been revealed of Johan Cruyff celebrated as Ajax player with the biggest triumphs on the day of becoming 70 ( 25 of April this year) hadn't he died on lung cancer 24 may 2016. Sadly the world lost one of its best football player and trainer that day. One for Monday Murals here.

Yesterday I had the pleasure to find myself behind the big glass windows above the canal in one of the newest buildings of Amsterdam University. ( Architecture by AHMM from London). A restaurant called the Bridge.
The view is really stunning. Also one for Skywatch Friday here.

Coming from the supermarket going home we were surprised by a parade. Something you see rarely or not at all in the Netherlands.
The Sikhs in the Netherlands were celebrating Vaisakhi, the birth of modern Sikhism which falls at the same time as the harvest festival in the Punjab.
very impressive and colorful
and that you don't expect
on your daily shopping round in Almere. (I didn't know that we have so many Sikhs living in Almere). One for Our World Tuesday here.

In Amersfoort where P. Mondriaan (one of the founders of the Stijl) was born they hit it big.
Even the french fries seller with the name of 'n other big painter ( who had nothing to do with the Stijl) participate.
But the tourist info make the most of it. One for Signs, Signs here.
