Bizarre le bâtiment au bout du pont.
Ginnie Hart: Rotterdam is known for its "unusual" architecture, Martine! It's everywhere.
smile Great optical illusion, Ginnie! Well done!
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Elizabeth, it's not an illusion! smile

I love this point of view, Ginnie. And that is a big climb for the bikers to start crossing the bridge....
Ginnie Hart: This is one of my favorite spots in all of Rotterdam, Astrid. smile Bedankt.
Impressionnante Ginnie cette architecture si particulière ..
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine. Rotterdam is known for its unusual architecture!

Everything is falling apart - get some glue quick!
Ginnie Hart: It does seem that way, Chris, doesn't it!
Une photo scène de vie sympa et une architecture originale qui défie l'es lois de la pesanteur.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It definitely defies the laws of gravity, Pascale! smile

This is weird. Presumably the floors inside are level!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Lisl. It seems so weird to see it in real life!
Is that Lady P and Grandson Nicholas I see?

Weird building!
Ginnie Hart: BINGO, Bill. Good eye!

Wow! That’s a fascinating structure. I wonder what the workers based there make of it?
Ginnie Hart: It really IS fascinating, Alan, as is so much of the Rotterdam architecture!

Quirky and funny yet reminiscent of images from earthquake hit cities Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You may have a good point, Chad, because the old Rotterdam was obliterated in WWII, so what grew up in its place is "quirky" architecture like this!
wow!! did it fall and then they straightened the floors? lol bizarre, tho i must admit, that although i have never seen such a sight, NOTHING is as it seems smile great picture!
Ginnie Hart: Rotterdam has so many quirky structures like this, Elaine. You almost always have to take a second look! Thanks.

An interesting view of this building that appears so topsy-turvy!! Great leading lines in the rails and plaza!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Steven. This kind of weirdness is so much a part of Rotterdam post WWII.
Everything seems a little slanted on Mondays... smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like that, Larry. smile
Maar zo is het toch ook in het `echie` ??
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Marjolein, that's exactly what it looks like in real life. smile
Incredible point of view!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Ruthie, isn't it! Thanks.

Etonnante architecture!
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Anne. smile Merci.
It is certainly a strange looking building but makes for an entertaining picture. Did you get time to take Nicholas up the Euromast during your visit, there are some good views from the top.
Ginnie Hart: No, Brian, we didn't check out the Euromast but we at least saw it! Maybe one day!

Forgive me this one.

That must be the building for the LGBT sciences faculty at Erasmus university. Not straight.

I just love the inventive architecture that the Dutch come up with, to brighten people's lives.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA, Louis. Brilliant of you. grin The architecture of Rotterdam truly is inventive!
that building looks like it's not too solid Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure that's part of the illusion, Peter! smile

well seen, Ginnie. and i recognize the figures up ahead.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush, and well you should. smile
That would drive my 'aspect' prog' mad! Good shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Frank! Thanks.
That would be disconcerting.
Ginnie Hart: A LOT or Rotterdam architecture is VERY disconcerting, Michael!

WHO designed that??? Well,I'd go inside...very creative...nice leading lines, too.
Ginnie Hart: Rotterdam has so much dorky architecture like this, Bonnie. It's like every new architect wanted to out-do the last. smile Thanks.
Oh this is fabulous! Great perspective!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Robin.

the tilt is very unexpected
Ginnie Hart: Every time I see it, Sherri, I tilt my head! Yes, very unexpected. smile
If someone were viewing this when tipsy, Ginnie, it would certainly sober them up rather quickly. Amazing bit of architecture.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love the thought, Beverly! smile
