Just outside our meeting place of my previous post. The Music Theater probably will need more room than anticipated..and will leave no room for shopping ladies anymore…..

Prosit 2019

Almost every Wednesday morning you can find me in Cafe Van Beek in the City Hall of The Hague where a couple of Photographers who know each other from Flickr meet to have a Coffee and chat a bit about Photography and everything else. The first Wednesday of 2019 we toasted with a Dutch Gin or Genever to celebrate a Happy New Year for 2019.

Update: Hah and Anoek (The Boss) has borrowed this photo…..

Scheveningen Water Tower

Scheveningen Water Tower

The water tower in Scheveningen is located in the dunes near Scheveningen, near the Pompstationsweg, in the Oostduinen district. The tower has the state monument status. The water tower was designed by architects L. A. Brouwer and Thy. Bar in neoclassical style and built in 1874 by The Hague Dune Water Company (now called Dunea).

Due to its two reservoirs of 1000 and 1200 m³ respectively, this tower can store the most water from Zuid-Holland. It was built because one started winning water in the dunes. It has a height of 48.74 meters. The tower was restored at the end of the 20th century. It is still in use and is on the list of monuments.

City Hall The Hague

City Hall The Hague

For 2019 I have decided to publish more of my photo’s albeit relevant or not so relevant. This photo was taken in June 2018 while a fence hid the building site of the new neighbour of The Hague’s City Hall. The new Music annex Dance Theater annex Music School of The Hague. The neighbour will be less white than the Ice Palace as is the local term for the City Hall.

Update: And I have created a special Category for it: Photo of the Day.
