The Cuidad de las artes y Ciencias or City of arts and Science in Valencia must be one of the most magnificent collections of architecture that I’ve ever witnessed! During a recent trip to the laid-back city of Valencia, Spain I had the joy of walking around there for an hour or so to take a few shots. I could easily pass a week shooting at this magnificent complex, but somehow I think my girlfriend wouldn’t have enjoyed that. It’s an impressive collection of buildings and if it wasn’t for the 10.000 other photographers and tourists, you’d probably feel like walking straight into the future on entering the complex. It’s unlike anything we’ve got in Amsterdam, except maybe the Eye Film museum, but on its own it fails to impress as much as the outer-space setting from the City of arts and Science. In the short time there I took almost 90 shots, and I haven’t even been inside anything. I hope you enjoy the photos!
I absolutely love the Alexanderplein in Amsterdam. This small square / crossing in the east part of Amsterdam holds the Muiderpoort (one of the old entrances to the city) at one side, the Artis zoo at the other. Even though it’s in quite a traffic-heavy area, it always seems to be peacefull. I shot this panorama from a bridge looking over the ‘Plantage muidergracht’. See how it looks on Google Maps right here.
