New skylines

The Hague has also newly built parts not far from the centre. This luxurious office/appartments area was designed by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill. Your thoughts?

Excellent composition! Those river banks' curves lead the perspective to the towering sky scrapper at the end ... Excellent!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

Maybe slightly artificial but I like this.

I love the two last buildings but these ones in this post are a little ordinary but the landscaping is great and so is the photo.

Me gusta el juego de líneas curvas y rectas, el reflejo y en general la composición de la foto. Gracias por tus visitas y comentarios.

Virginia said...

I would like to see more of the beautiful old homes you have been treating us to.

Snapper said...

I wouldn't want to live there, it's far too perfect. But your photo is also perfect and that's a good thing!

Thank you for your comments, Zoe!!
In reality the reflection of the still water of the pond is beautiful. Personally speaking I would not want to live there, because I prefer old houses but there is no traffic at all, so very quiet

Thank you for your kind comments, Eki Qushay Akhwan!!
I believe that such environments are nicer in photo rather than in reality.

Thank for your comments, Per! As I mentioned before, it is too cleanlined for me to live there.

Thanks for stepping by, Suzanne!! Not my liking either.

Muchas gracias, Pepe!!

I will post a few more photos of the old houses of The Hague, especially for you, Virginia, but then I have to diversify again!!

Thanks for your kind comments, Snapper!!

Nice architecture...somewhat reminds me of the Crystal palace in Dallas TX ( what I call it) it is the INFO Mart, I believe, not sure, part of the world Trade Center there.

Very nice shot I think, and has a very clam look for a building obviously busy.

Not a fan of modern building, but sometimes you can get very dramtic statement images. This is a perfect example.

Thanks for you comments, Babooska!!

Not keen on this at all, Diederich. The character is sterile and lacks imagination. The materials are artificial.

Give me old and weathered and earth and rock.

This is a little sterile for my tastes but it is all about the light, which is gorgeous!

omami said...

Magnifique prise de vue et l'architecture est imposante, parlez-vous francais||

Carraol said...

Beautiful architecture and excellent shot!

Blognote said...

I do so agree with you, Julie!! I would not choose to liver there. The neighbourhood behind it is very beautiful because with many streets all in Art Nouveau style.

Thanks for your comments, Slim!!

Qui, je parle francais et je vous remercie pour vos gentils mots, Omami!!

Thank you for your thoughts, Carraol!!
