Rome

January 7, 2010

We went to Rome to end last year and start a fresh one. It’s really an insanely large and beautiful city, with almost too much cultural stuff to discover in a single week. We did our best :P.

On the far right you see the Colosseum

Now I have to find new ideas for the next year :P.

edit: maybe the colours are a bit too saturataed, it’s hard to judge from my laptop

Strasbourg

August 29, 2009

In the beginning of august we went to Strasbourg for a wedding; I took a few days off and we explored the city and its surroundings for a few days. It’s a quaint little town, and we had the best weather imaginable. I borrowed a camera to take some pictures (since I didn’t yet buy a new one after the burglary), and they came out quite nicely.

Pictures from Marseille

August 28, 2007

Although we’re back in Holland for quite some time, I still wanted to show some pictures I made Marseille.

View of the Vieux Port in Marseille, at night:

The left picture was taken from Fort St. Jean, which you see on the second picture. In the background you see the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde.

This was taken on the beach; I just liked the nice blue colour.

Some pictures from the mountains; Callelonge and Calanques. On the last picture you see a bay where we swam.

Finally, a hooker who was prancing ‘our’ street daily; and a somewhat vague picture made at the Vieux Port (but I liked the reflections):
