Rotown Magic

We’re back in Rotterdam. Not that we ever left, but this time we took photographer Maarten de Groot with us to show some him some of the hidden gems of our city. Rotterdam has many nicknames, but ‘Rotown’ is our favorite. It’s the name of one of it’s famous and notorious bars, but also from the the (even more notorious) poet Jules Deelder’ and his poem ‘Rotown Magic’.

According to Jules Deelder “It’s not camera sensitive, doesn’t seem more beautiful than it is. It is square high and angular, tilted in the backlight.” 

Sorry Jules, we’ve tried to capture it anyway…

Early morning meetup at ‘het Luchtpark’ where we start our cruise around the city. Just a stone’s throw from our studio.

Ashley is wearing the Strawberry Banana Spinach Smoothie Jersey with the Chocolate bib shorts.

Els is wearing the Feeding Frenzy jersey with the Olive bib shorts and Flyer vest. Construction works are a familiar backdrop in this city.

When the sun peaks through the city heats up. Sunlight bounced around by all that glass.

Jamie wears the Candy Camo combo; Jersey combined with Olive bib shorts and Just in Case gilet.

We don’t take the ‘watertaxi’ today, but you’ll find their bright yellow mooring places all around the city (as long as you’re at the waterside, which is quite a lot) and we just love yellow! (And see how great they match the Bananas socks 🙂

After sprints up the Erasmusbrug it was snack time! And selfie-time of course 🙂
