Looking up

Modern architecture was also a part of the shopping scene in Dortmund. This glass dome was graced with lights that changed colors every few minutes.

It's part of the Hansa Carre shopping center. This seal was planted in the floor at exactly the middle point of the cupola. More signs can be found at Signs, Signs. Photos taken in July 2016.

The Hustler

I found this large scale mural in Dortmund when I was visiting earlier this summer.

It's so big, it wouldn't all fit on one take! I love all the color and just the sheer size of it! Visit Monday Mural for more murals. Photo taken in July 2016.

I just love crests. This one represents the old empire of Holland with the proud lion. Take a look at Signs, Signs. Photo taken in May 2016.

The eyes

If you look closely at this mural, you'll see many pairs of eyes staring back at you. I'm not sure what it all means, but it's certainly one you can stop and look at for awhile. More murals can be found here. Photo taken in June 2016.

The beautiful Binnenhof reflected in the shallow waters that surround it. This is the oldest parliament building in the world that is still being used for parliamentary purposes. I would have loved to see inside. More reflections can be found here. Photo taken in May 2016.

Home of the pearl earring

If you love the Girl with a Pearl Earring from Dutch artist Vermeer, then a visit to the Mauritshuis in the Hague is in order. I wish I would have had time to stop in, but I was on a business trip and there was no time for a museum visit. A reason to go back! Photo taken in May 2016.

Big babies

These big baby heads were all over Rotterdam when I was there earlier this year. The sign underneath says 50 Years of de Doelen. De Doelen is a congress hall/concert venue in Rotterdam that is celebrating it's 50th anniversary this year. The dolls are an art project sponsored by the city to celebrate 75 years of rebirth after the destruction of WWII.

Thank you to biebkribels for the explanation on the baby heads and the sign. Although I like the thought behind this exhibition, the heads are a bit creepy. However, they certainly get your attention! More signs can be found here. Photos taken in May 2016.
