Discoveries I've thanked
Lists I follow
Praça Do Marquês De Pombal
Vila Real de Santo António, Portugal
No effort was spared to make clear that this is the central square of this well designed town. Founded by King Joseph I (aka "The Reformer")'...
A small bench, instead of these traffic bollards, would make it much more comfortable to enjoy this #streetart by Tonie Spinar. Then again, it...
Snow makes Austria even more photographable, and Troverable. - If this was a painting, I would name it "The old man and his dog". Great...
Bezoekerscentrum Oisterwijk - Groot Speijck
Great forest for a walk-about on a foggy day. - if Loch Nessie would have a Dutch cousin, this would be a perfect hide-out.
If you are in for a break from downtown Valencia, do take a quiet walk through the Botanic Garden. Lots of palm trees and cacti, even greenhouses,...
The ability to selfie has come quite a way since its Medieval inception - Grand #streetart by Escif.
Museum Hermitage Amsterdam
Mega rabbit at Hermitage for kids. If this does not get kids interested in art, not sure what will. https://www.hermitage.nl/nl/hermitagevoorkinderen/
When you love globes and plants and you want everybody to know about it as well! #onlyinAmsterdam
Suddenly it completely makes sense that this is the way to get from the subway to the Dutch Photomuseum. https://www.nederlandsfotomuseum.nl/en/
The capitol landscape shows clear signs of the approaching winter. Let's hope it will be a short one.
Cranbrook Academy of Art
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan
Statues and fountains may make a quick stroll not your average walk in the park.
IJsselmeer aka Lake tranquility, only with wind force 0. Sunshine helps as well.
This "Monument Noordoostpolder" is a kind reminder to highway motorists about how much below sea level they are actually -safely- driving. The wave...
Great architecture requires no clear sky in order to shine. https://www.elbphilharmonie.de/en/
These grotesques (carved stone figures) are quite a treat. You can find them on the outside of the castle at the bottom of most windows. The castle...
The concept of the Parisienne café explained in three words: eat, drink, blabla. "Open all days". Just happened to be closed when I got there. Very...
It almost seems as if the -quite expressionistic- art was picked to match the couch. - I preferred the couch by a factor 10.
Contrary to popular belief in German organisational skill and structure, these covered chairs (Strandkorb) seem randomly placed on the beach. The...
Apollo Hotel Groningen
Where cubism meets archicture. - bottom half is a hotel, on top are apartments. #greatdesign
Seemingly random along the Dutch dikes you will find structures like this, which hide a pumping station. Named after Cornelis Lely, one of many who...
