Special Spot Shots • Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #78

This edition of Lens-Artists I found not to be the easiest. The challenge being ‘Now we are looking forward to seeing Your very special spot shots – maybe a room in your home, a garden, a mountain, a city, an exhibition, a lovely café…a place that is special to you!’

‘A place…’ Singular. While I have so many hunting grounds. But if I have to settle on one, it is the city of The Hague. Not just because I live here, which makes it easy, but for a variety of other reasons…

It is one of the few cities in the Netherlands with a skyline

It has a formidable Chinatown

It houses the Kunstmuseum in modern art. One of my favorite musea.

There are still loads of abandoned bicycles littering the streets

…or they’re being dredged up from the countless canals

  1. A great spot, and a spectacular skyline – I haven’t been there to see it for many years, thank you for posting! We travelled the Netherlands in the 80’s, so I guess there was no skyline like that back then. The city has many advantages I can see – not least bicycles, if they are used as they should ;-D. But Your country used to be a land of cycling people – is it still? It is like Skåne, where I live, flat and easy to bike.

  2. Wow. Great selection of photos. I’ve been to Den Haag. Quite the mixture of old and new. Scheveningen is noteworthy, too. The pictures of the young Rolling Stones in the old hotel. I went to the North Sea Jazz Festival in the early 90’s, a couple of times. Thanks for the memories!
