Photographer's Note

dedicated to everyone who is waiting for spring


This picture was shot one early January morning on the left bank of the river Scheldt. I live all the way on the other side of the city, but Antwerp is a small place.

The three towers in my shot make up our admittedly modest skyline. From left to right, they are

- the Cathedral of Our Lady ("Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal), with its one tower finished and the other one only half, one of the most impressive buildings of nothern gothic

- the Boer Tower ("Boerentoren"), Europe's oldest 'Chicago-style' skyscraper, now owned by a bank

- the Oudaan, which is the headquarters of the Antwerp police, it's on the far right of the picture (no pun intended, haha!)

Stay sane, folks.
