Photographer's Note

I got up early,
got the kid to school,
and took a tram
to the other side.

THIS PICTURE was taken from the left bank of the river Scheldt. Though connected by several tunnels and officially very much a part of the city of Antwerp, most people still consider the largely undevelopped left bank to be "across the water", "over 't water" as we say in Flemish.

OH BUOY! A buoy is a float moored in water to mark a location, warn of danger, or indicate a navigational channel. This one, however, is one stranded in an art project on the left bank of the river Scheldt.

RED AND WHITE are the colours of the city, and of our football team, Royal Antwerp FC, so I thought they deserved a little saturation.

THE FOUR TOWERS IN THE BACKGROUND make a good summary of what our city is about, from left to right they are:

- the old pilotage hall ('Loodswezen'), representing the port of Antwerp
- the Cathedral of Our Lady ('Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal'), representing Roman-Catholic religion
- the Boer Tower ('Boerentoren'), representing the world of finance
- the Oudaan ('Oudaan'), which is the Antwerp police headquarters

Not visible in the skyline are the many downtown cafι's...

note: This is the third and final shot in my series of the stranded buoy on the left bank of the Scheldt river in Antwerp.
