Ice Palace

IJspaleis_MG_6163
With a photo of the Ice Palace I would like to resume posting on this blog and to offer a cool view on a hot July day. We’re experiencing an official heat wave, the first since 2006.

“Ice Palace” is the local vernacular for the Town Hall of The Hague. It’s still stately without the intended Spui Forum as its neighbor, but obviously this was a just as megalomaniac project as the Spui Forum is now.

Stay tuned for updates of the blog

Meet Roel Wijnants – My Favorite The Hague Streetphotographer

Strijkijzer

This is the The Hague Flatiron building next to Central Station from an unusual angle and with a very dark background.

Roel Wijnants is a man who, when he walks through The Hague, never ceases to look around him with a keen photographer’s Eye.

I’m trying to revive the blog now and hope others will follow.
