Today I went to Radio Kootwijk; a very small village that was built for the workers who manned the enormous radio station that we used to communicate with our oversees colonies in East-Indie and Southern America. The building from which the transmissions took place is very unique. It was meant by the architect to look like a sphinx but soon got the nickname 'The Cathedral.'



The inside is not so spectacular:

That's still an awesome building. It reminds me of a power station's turbine hall inside, only not so large.

Would the tower originally have been capped by a transmitter?

Yes,there was a big mast on the tower, and a lot of smaller ones around the building.

Ah, that building is very close to where I live (Kootwijk is part of the Apeldoorn municipality). It's a protected landmark.

Did you know it was featured in the movie Mindhunters (2004)? They shot most parts of the movie in- and outside of this building.



You can even see the floor tiles from your picture in this screenshot from the movie:

Last weekend I went to one of the great waterworks the Dutch are famous for: the Maeslant barrier. It's a ginormous barrier to keep the water out but only when the water is very high. Therefore they constucted two doors that can be closed and opened at will to shut off a 360 m wide opening and in that way make sure that no water from the North Sean flows up river and overflows the land. Here are some pictures. The problem is that the thing is so BIG that I couldn't get it on one picture.

Here's part of one arm:


And the other side. At the end you see the enormous door that closes half of the river, partly hidden beneath the surface. On the other side of the river there is a similar structure. Together they close the whole river and keep the water out if necessary.


This is the arm on the other side of the river. On the right you see the door, if you look closely. On the left there is a 10 m diameter ball that holds the whole structure in place. The ball can turn so the structure, which is as big as the Eiffel Tower, pivots around it and the barrier is closed. See the website for more information.


And of course there are more pictures on Flickr.

I took a number of photos from the Manchester MCM Expo I went to yesterday (the UK's Comic-Con). As well as a number of cosplay photos, I got a photo of none other than Craig Charles (Red Dwarf) and Warwick Davis (Willow, Harry Potter):

Oh, no... I didn't 'meet' him; that's not my hand. But I was standing near him. Trouble was, you had to spend £15-20 on a Red Dwarf picture/poster from the stall in order to get it signed and talk to him.

Yeah, that would suck. But just to see him...if I tried to talk to him, I'd probably end up looking stupid and fangirlish.

Cool, I know almost nothing about stars and such but I recognize both of these people. Red Dwarf, that was long ago... and a lot of fun.

Ugh... on floor

I love Red Dwarf, it's my favorite tv show, even though my friends make fun of me for it. <3 <3 <3 One of my dreams is be able to go to Dimension Jump, the official Red Dwarf convention, and met them...

This thread reminds me - I took some photos late this spring I was supposed to show around... Well, better late than never! They're nothing too special, but I like some of them.

So, first the 'glass series'




The rest:
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011056.jpg
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011059.jpg
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011060.jpg
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011061.jpg
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011063.jpg

And some from the Aulanko park:


You know, puddles (though that's not exactly one) are amongst my favorite things to photograph. It's a bit of a measure of a photographer, in my opinion, puddle-pictures I mean, first of all you need to have a good eye to realize the photo opportunities in them, and secondly you need at least some skill to take the picture so that it looks good (I'm not saying I always succeed). Of course, I tend to not have the camera with me when I see the best puddles

Anyways, here are some other pictures in similar vein:
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011032.jpg
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011017.jpg
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011016.jpg

All these were taken when the snow had almost, but not quite in some places, melted, and certain chunks of ice caused one part to flood etcetera. It caused all sorts interesting phenomena, most that I couldn't photograph, unfortunately.

Anyways, just a few more:

And another (larger scale):
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011020.jpg

And the last ones:


And a detail of the rocks (with moss - I like this one):
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011047.jpg

and finally the twisting stairway:
http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/t...evt2011051.jpg

There, sorry if it was too much
