Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam , also called "de kuip".
Stadion Feijenoord, popularly called De Kuip, is a soccer stadium in Rotterdam-Zuid (IJsselmonde). It is a stadium with soccer history where the professional football organization Feyenoord plays its home matches. The driving force behind the construction of this stadium was Feyenoord chairman Leen van Zandvliet, after whom the adjacent square is also named. The stadium was designed by architect Leendert van der Vlugt, of Brinkman and Van der Vlugt architecture firm. Construction began in 1935; the opening was on March 27, 1937. Van der Vlugt died in 1936 and thus did not witness the opening.

Hi, I am John Ouwens. In the late sixties I was born in Rotterdam and after some wanderings I ended up in Kinderdijk, a lovely village in the Alblasserwaard, famous for its windmills and vast polder landscape. About 30 years ago I bought my first SLR camera, the period of regularly going to the development center with my knees buckling to see what results I had shot (and then being proud of the result). About 7.5 years later I got rid of the camera for various reasons, but it always kept itching...Around 2000 I bought another camera, a digital one, not too expensive, to see if it would still be so much fun. And indeed I am still very enthusiastic and eager to learn. By reading a lot about it, following workshops, but especially by doing it a lot, I am a real autodidact, as they call it. An amateur photographer, who is not easily satisfied with his own work and is always critical.
