Quote from: kelis on December 26, 2012, 01:49:14 PMGreat pictures my friend, I love your city, I've been there two times, I like Antwerpen, even more than Brussels !!I like the new building in the port (MAS) It looks very modern and fits perfectly in the port...and what can I say about the church? It's an amazing cathedral !! and well as a curiosity, I have a good remember of this city because when I back to Holland by road, always I cross the city, your city is pretty close to my dear Netherlands.Groeten
Quote from: noahclem on December 26, 2012, 02:39:50 PMSuch a beautiful town It really seems like an amazing place. The pictures are outstanding and I love watching the tramlines and brick streets flow through the streets. The art deco skyscraper is really something. I imagine it's not easy to have a highrise blend nicely into such architecture but it pulls off the feat brilliantly. Almost makes me wish I was a BATter and could work that one out for you--hopefully someone else more talented is inspired by your pictures The cathedral is also something special and it's fascinating to see those guild halls. Great work
Quote from: sunv123 on December 26, 2012, 04:15:36 PMMore stuff from Swordmaster! Your city loooks great, way better that suburban america. I agree with Noah, the skyscraper looks fantastic. So.. elegant. The christmas tree is pretty big, though a little bare.This is what the Christmas tree in my city looks like. The cathedral looks so elegant.. so complex.. so cool. You're lucky to have such a cool city. Suburban america is NOT good.Hope to see more from this. Too bad i can't BAT either....... Google sketchup is my thing.
Quote from: mave94 on December 27, 2012, 09:03:15 AMI've never been to Antwerp itself, but I've driven past the city on the ringroad when going on holiday. I remember seeing a lot of churches, how beautiful. Those photos are wonderful. I especially like the church; it's so beautiful. That tram is also nice; its destination is Hoboken. Is that a neighbourhood in Antwerp? I only know Hoboken as a neighbourhood somewhere around New York.-Matthijs
Quote from: WC_EEND on December 27, 2012, 02:04:13 PMYup, there's a Hoboken in Antwerp as well. I'm fairly sure the one in New Jersey is named after the one in Antwerp (not too much of a stretch if you take into account New York used to be called New Amsterdam). For the PCC fans, there's plenty of those running around in Gent and Brussels as well. If someone wants pics of those in Gent, just ask and I will deliver.Xander
Quote from: vester on December 29, 2012, 03:46:26 PMNice pictures. There is a lot of white(ish) buildings in Antwerp, with just few splash of colors.
Quote from: rooker1 on January 18, 2013, 03:57:14 AMBoth sets of pics are fantastic and very impressive. Outsiders looking in always find other cities interesting I find, but I think most of you that live there take for granted the architecture there as I do here where I live. And this is why we always want to go on vacations other than where we live.....so we can get out and experience life in other cities. Great pics and thanks for sharing. I hope we get another set very soon.Robin
Quote from: noahclem on January 18, 2013, 03:00:52 PMReally nice pictures Willy! It's funny how much the snowy railyards look like the ones I drive over in Oulu every now and then in winter. The timeless scenes of your home town gain a special character with a bit of snow and I'm glad you decided to share these with us. Try to keep warm
Quote from: rooker1 on January 27, 2013, 03:24:29 PMThese are the kinds of pictures I really like to see. Any one can take a picture of a city and make it look pretty, but when you just take real life pictures in everyday circumstances, these are the ones I like most.Great pics, thanks for sharing.....again.Robin
Quote from: noahclem on January 27, 2013, 08:08:39 AMNice pics again Willy I particularly enjoyed the Carolus Borromeus and the 3-level pic. The police tower seems to be an appropriately policey-looking brutalist design and I love the stairway on the modernest building. But where'd the trams go? And why do the trees keep photo-bombing your pics? Always a pleasure to have a look around your city.
