Skywatch Friday

In ye ol' days the people of Amsterdam depended on watertowers like these for their drinking water. It costed one cent per bucket:






















A few weeks ago I took this shot from a moving train on my way from Amsterdam to Breda. You can actually see the reflection of my camera in the window:






















Last week and the week before I showed you a picture of one of two buildings know as "The Piramids" but are actually shaped after the christmas-tree in the architect's office. Here's the same building from yet a different angle:























I also showed you where a friend of mine lives; That same building again:


















Note: Every SWF-picture published here is shot with my trusty Nokia N93 mobile phone and is unedited. For more Skywatch Friday photo's from around the globe, please check http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Hoewel het allemaal weer mooie foto's zijn, komt de lucht het best tot zijn recht op je tweede foto.
Goed weekend!

I really liked the last photo in particular. Nice to see some non touristy perspectives of Amsterdam - espcially as I enjoyed visiting so much I'm seriously considering relocating.

Great shots! I don't know these buildings, because when I go to Amsterdam I always go to the Binnenstad and its museums. I shall go to the Hermitage pretty soon, with some friends.
Have a great SWF!

Beautiful architectures and skies.
Nice shots using the cellphone. I also use it whenever I forget to bring a cam.
