Lots of Brits in Ypres, Belgium (WW1 battles).







Dunkirk seafront. 12C sea and 80 km/h gusts. You can tell by the crowded beach. Due to the wind, huge amounts of iron dust were escaping the steel mill in the background. The air was less smelly than usual though.







Amiens. Postwar architecture in front of a gothic masterpiece.





Buildings opposite of the cathedral. Not a lot of people to enjoy the grey, cool weather. Maybe they prefer sunshine?











No, they're all here, eating ficelle picarde.

I think only the two first pictures was from Belgium. The rest was from Dunkirk and Amiens.

But what is that terrible building in front of the Amiens Cathedral? A library? Anyways, that should be demolished immediately.

All that post war crapitecture stuff really ruins the feel of what were very good looking cities. Like the city of Lavatory, in the west midlands, which was bombed to hell in WWII, and now they just need to go back and finish it off.

Yup some cities were hit hard. Ypres was more or less leveled during WW1, but as one can see, old buildings have been reconstructed. Amiens has suffered during WW2 but there's some pre-war stuff left. Le Havre, Normandy is another postwar gem. Some like it, I certainly don't.

Yup, the first two are from Flanders, the others from France.

It's a residential building. I don't think they'll demolish it in the near future, as it was completed in 2011.
I don't mind it. Before, I think there was a rund-down parking lot anyway.

Yes, with a noticeably lower sun angle.

Summer Storm clouds over the water facing Long Island. This was an hour ago after some storms passed by me.
