Place in the World – Art Work

The weekly theme is ‘place in the world’. Where do you belong? Images of the place I live, my place(s) in the world.  Number 4: the bridge over Hollands Diep for the high speed line. Bridges, dams and water locks are ‘art work’ in the jargon of the agency that maintains them, Rijkswaterstaat.

Place in the World – J.H. Oortbridge

The weekly theme is ‘place in the world’. Where do you belong?
Images of the place I live, my place(s) in the world. Number 3: the Oortbridge and the canal.

Water is an essential, crucial and critical element of life in The Netherlands. Half of the country is below sea level so we need to manage water. Each day I pass the J.H. Oortbridge over the canal that leads from Warmond to Katwijk. The canal is – apart from being a means of transportation and recreation –  used to dump excess sweet water into the sea at low tide. This week’s theme ‘place in the world’ associated with the name giver of this bridge is funny: Jan Hendrik Oort was a famous Dutch astronomer and a pioneer in exploring space outside our world.
