Am seeing that the fog has cleared Frans. 💨😀

It's something how a sunny clear day can make you feel. 🌞As well as
just make things look right?! ..Everything just really seems to come alive,
and you notice new amazing details too. From the shear scope of the
landscape, to the back, and fourth of wonderful greens, and hypnotic
metal, and steel. Everything seems just a little more happy, and a little
more beautiful right?!

Although, have to admit that fog was neat though. 😊

Phenomenal as always sir, thanks so so much !!!

This is an art depot, will be officially opened coming Friday. Restaurant on top, and the collection (from museum Booijmans van Beuningen) is open for public. The museum is closed for years to undergo extensive renovation.

That is beyond cool to hear, not to mention see sir ! 😎😎

Yowza, it looks like a globe which has been cut in
half, or like this giant amazing metallic bowl. 😮🏆
Is it actually mirror-like Frans? Or is that actually a
painting that we are seeing on the outside of it? 😲
Hey, and there even looks to be trees, along with
various structures on top too !

Incredible stuff Frans, thanks a ton for the look,
along with news about this !!!

It is mirrored glass. And the actual building, not a render. The structure on top is a restaurant. Some hate the building, many like it because it’s so different.

That is really something Frans. (y)(y) 😎 I can just imagine how
it is in person too with glass like that. Because like I said, from here,
it makes the city look as if it was painted on the building. So when
people are up close, it must be like watching a giant movie screen,
or TV screen.

However, instead of watching someone, or something else, they are
seeing themselves, along with their whole city in action. It sounds
pretty fantastic to me, plus you can grab a bite to eat too ! 😀

Really appreciate the insight sir. Thanks again !!!

😲Man, that is just extraordinary sir ! :D

It's so ingenious really Frans. Plus let's face it, it looks incredibly cool !:cool:;)

Honestly love how it stands out, but also how it almost blends in, or
becomes stealthy, or invisible. It's almost like it disappears at times
like some otherworldly UFO. 😮🛸

It has already been nicknamed 'the pan' :p

Check that out Frans ! o_O ..I'm imagining the views now ! :D:)

What's terrific too, is you can see that the way the buildings are
situated that everyone can actually have a nice view. I just love
that ! 😉Because whether you're right near the water, or back in
one of the taller buildings, there always seems to be a beautiful
look at everything. And speaking of the water, that has to be so
incredible always being right next to it. Honestly is beyond cool
sir.

I hope you don't mind if I stare for a little while. 😊THX a bunch
as always Frans !!!

Ooh neat Frans, whoa, would you check out that view ! :D:cool:
Thanks so so much for the look !!!

I am not sure if we have seen this area of the city before. Or if
it just looks different because of the angle the picture was taken,
but it is gorgeous. 😯🏆🥇The building, the water, trees, along
with grasslands seem to go on forever to the point where it looks
like we are seeing the curvature of the earth. 😲It's epic actually,
and as usual that's just from seeing the picture. ..Can only imagine
how it is in person.

Oh, and am noticing what even looks like a couple arenas, or
stadiums by the way Frans. Cool ! ⚽🎸

Well spotted Tom. The iconic stadium farthest away is the home ground of football club Feyenoord and the stadium closest in the picture is a projection of the 500 million dollar new stadium that has been postponed for a year yet again because of steeply increased building costs (the debate over a new, UEFA standard, stadium has been going on for over 10 years now).

😀 Oh neat Frans ! 😎🙂Well thank you very very much for the information
on those, along with insight on everything ! ..I'm actually thinking that the new
stadium will be well worth the wait sir. Just like a cool watch. 😉I mean you
can see how amazing they both look from here. So when all is said, and done
the new stadium will be a great addition to the city, not to mention just a fun
place to go to.

Frans, yet another fantastic picture, and love the close-up view
of the boat, or boats too here as well ! 😮😀..I almost feel like I
can feel the water moving, as well as the wind blowing from here.
It's really something how photos can give us such a feeling, or
generate such a reaction imho. And on top of that, just like in
life you are always finding out new things, or discovering those
details that you maybe missed the first time around. :D

I'm looking at it, and seeing so many neat details actually Frans,
from the look of the hull, to the different levels, nooks, and crannies,
cool wires, and flags. All of it, not to mention the water, as well as
big brother right beside it, and the pier behind everything. It really
is fantastic !

Frans, can you tell us anything about those ships? What type
are they? Or what are they used for I mean? ..Oh, and as always,
thanks so so much for taking the time to show us around !!! :)
