Photographer's Note

Today I present you the 50th post in my little "Pictures of Home" theme, which includes various pictures I shot while out walking in my hometown.

Antwerp is a port city on the river Scheldt. Though the actual harbour has moved north towards the Dutch border now, there are still many remnants of the old harbour in the actual city center.

This picture shows one of the ships taking part in the 2016 Tall Ships Race. It lies docked on the river Scheldt with the tower of the Antwerp Cathedral visible in the distance.

The building in the middle is the Noorderterras, the counterpart of the Zuiderterras (RAS), which I showed you in my previous post.

Funny thing is they used to call this kind of tall ships the "cathedrals of the sea".
