What to choose?

The murals of last Kings spray festival this year ( in celebrating King Willem-Alexander birthday) are still to watch on the NDSM terrain.
And we were not the only ones but lying on the ground for a photo opportunity. No not anymore.

Toys for boys

A group of businessmen from Den Helder bought an old Russian submarine for a joke and now it's been in the harbour in the north of Amsterdam for years. The municipality of Amsterdam is trying to get rid of it, but that's not so easy.

Can you find it.

On the left  the Collona Bisbetica from Roberto Barni on the Artzuid route.
The girl on the right gave me a big smile. I first thought is she standing next to another statue of a pile of handbags but she was guarding them for her colleagues who were getting drinks.

There was a time

that you could tell the time only from big tower clocks like this one on the Berlage exchange in Amsterdam (Traditionalist School style architecture). Nowadays they are even not incorporated anymore. Yes times are changing indeed.
The dutch verb under the clock says in a kind of free translation always wait for the right time to do business. One for Signs, Signs here.
