Weekend Reflections, The Netherlands, Rotterdam

Posted by PicasaThis model of the S.S.Rotterdam is placed in front of a mirror , which results in at least three reflections.

This ship is now a hotel . Once it has been the largest and most beautiful ship of the Netherlands.
Wikipedia:"The fifth SS Rotterdam, known as "The Grande Dame", was launched by Queen Juliana in a gala ceremony on 13 September 1958, and completed the following summer. The Rotterdam was the last great Dutch "ship of state", employing the finest artisans from the Netherlands in her construction and fitting out process. Her career spanned forty-one years. She sailed from 1959 until her final retirement in September 2000.

Euromast is an observation tower in Rotterdam, Netherlands, designed by Hugh Maaskant constructed between 1958 and 1960

Reflection of among other things, the Euromast in the swimming pool on the promenade deck of the S.S. Rotterdam, which you can see if you enlarge the photo.

Wat leuk, de Rotterdam. Er is nou blijkbaar weer een nieuwe Rotterdam want ik krijg steeds reclame voor cruises. Ik ben al bij Alphabe Thursday en twee keer letters uitzoeken is een beetje veel. Fijn weekend!
