Kronenburgerpark Nijmegen, The Netherlands

7

In the middle of the center, such a beautiful and calming place, I loved being there, walking around enjoying the sun.

The Kronenburgerpark is the most beautiful park of Nijmegen, centrally located in the oldest city in the Netherlands.
A place where local are proud of. It is close to the station and the Lange Hezelstraat. Where the park touches the Parkweg are the remains of the medieval walls of Kruittoren (the Powder Tower). The park, in a song sung by Frank Boeijen, was known as a hangout for prostitutes and drug addicts. After a major reorganization in 2005 the park has been the appearance of a peaceful, modern city park.

It was a sunny clear day with lots of snow. I had to do some shopping in the centre of Nijmegen and took my Diana with me. It was just delivered by the mail so I was quite excited. I remembered the Kronenburgerpark and it was the perfect spot to try out my new cam. In the middle of the center, such a beautiful and calming place, I loved being there, walking around enjoying the sun.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Kick-Off Country: Kicking Off the World Cup Blues in Paris

    Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.

    Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens: Wandering Through The Big Apple

    There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love. Countless movies and television programs have been filmed in New York, and so many songs have been written in reminiscence of the place. It’s not just the Empire State Building, Times Square or Broadway; there’s something special about the streets and the people who walk on them that make spectators stop, look, and listen.
