This is bridge number 80 built in 1903 in Amsterdam. It is considered a monument because of the aesthetic quality of the design and its importance for the image of the city. It was designed by the Department of Bridges of the Public Services of the City Council.
The bridge is in the so-called ‘Entrepot Dock’ area, where in the past there were big warehouses to store goods temporarily, until taxes had been paid. These warehouses have been transformed into apartments and became a residential area.
As I passed by boat underneath the bridge, and as it was a very cloudy afternoon, this combination made for a nice monochrome photo with high contrast, highlighting the bridge contours.
Photos taken with an iPhone 6. Converted to monochrome and increased clarity to 100%.
