I just returned from a lovely holiday on Lesvos (Greece). Before posting pics from it, I will be sharing some Rotterdam pics with you. And the first triptych will concern pupating.
In nature some insects pupate .... and during construction most buildings do too. After a building has reached its maximum height, the construction is often covered in safety netting and during the closing stages of the building process this netting is removed in stages.
Displayed here is the netting (billowing in the wind) hanging from the new glass roof of the train shed of the new Rotterdam Central Station. Those little square shadows are photovoltaic elements.
The new station will be opened in mid 2013 and the construction is a complex process of transformation of the old station which remains in operation during it. It involves phased demolition of the old station and creating temporary and new facilities. This picture was shot from one of the platforms.
Information about the new station is here.

U heeft altijd een andere kijk op de dingen, dat maakt dat u altijd bijzondere foto's maakt, met verschillende onderwerpen.
Dit is opnieuw zeer mooi door de rode kleur dat dominant heerst over de foto
Zeer mooi foto werk, perfect samenstelling.
Goed gedaan, bedankt.

welcome to the site after your vacations in Lesvos island.I hope to passed there your time with pleasure and to see a lot of photos.I was there before two years and i can say that spent my time discovering the island.
Nice the presentation as the creating texture from the hanging from the glass roof net with its red colour to makes the image moe effective.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

A splendid graphical shot, all in black and red, very much like an abstract painting
Well done, best regards

very abstract view and a good play with colors and shadows. TFS, best regards, F.

a very eye catching abstract. The colour makes this a real knock out.I like that you have filled the frame and kept it simple.

I'm sure you enjoyed Lesvos.
This is an eye-catching shot.
I like your association with pupating, for there are certainly similarities. The strong black lines give the shot its form, whilst the wonderful, shadowy patterns are what the eyes love to dwell upon.
Have a lovely day,

Welcome back and what a stunning picture you have posted. The vibrant red and the black netting is so graphic with intricate contours and patterns. Super work.
Kind Regards, Ann

Een fantastische foto, om traag te degusteren. Eerst laat ik me overweldigen door vorm en kleur, dan de mysterieuze titel (raden wat het is) en dan - ja, hoor - de perfect 'note' die alles duidelijk uitlegt en mooi omkadert. Prima upload, daar hou ik van.
Geniet van je week.

Very fine graphical effect of the red cover. I like the shapes and colors, well taken detail.

An unusual and very nice idea, beautiful neverending perspective and a great eggect 3D. I like this lot of red and the brilliant sharpness too.
Have a nice evening,

At first view it seems an abstract and beautiful picture, after reading your note I discover it s a kind of texture
Well done with only two colors, red and black, nice graphic capture
Greetings and TFS

A really great theme. Construction covers and nets that in the past were very pretty boring are nowadays both imaginative and colourful. Your photo is graphically appealing and the red colour is very attractive. TFS and have a nice evening!

Verstuur een mooie display. Blootstelling was zeer goed. Cute.

nice to see you back, and i'll be looking forward to seeing what you have for us from your recent trip.
as for this one, and your newest post, both are mind blowing as both have huge graphic and abstract appeal.
Even with your explanation in the note, its hard to tell exactly what this is!
the reds and blacks are wonderful together.

I've seen better what is really is on your last post, but this is really a great detail! The black lines and the shades form a beautiful pattern. I like the way you framed it! Great light and colours!
