The Hague’s Beatrixkwartier on a beautiful monday fall-morning. This location was on top of my list and I finally had the opportunity. Earlier that morning I went to Oegstgeest and shot the small castle of Oud Poelgeest but soon a little haze came into the sky so the fall colors on the tree’s were not working for me. In the end I did manage to get a shot but I was glad I planned the castle shot early so I could change plans and drive out to the Beatrixkwartier in The Hague. This is a high profile location with apartments and offices all spatially set up with great modern architecture. The public transport tramstation that is elevated above street level are called ‘the stockings’ by the native The-Hagueians.
Tall modern buildings surround the futuristic architecture of the tram-line. An inspiring place to be, the corporate power and presence is almost tangible. I had checked out the location using Trey Ratcliff’s ‘Stuck on Earth iPad app’ and of course drove by once or twice to see where I could park and see it with my own eyes.
I did not have any particular shot in mind but walking up and down the street enjoying the location and the marvelous light provided a lot of inspiration. I loved the light and the shadow play on the ground and could have been there for hours but It was time for me a and I had to pick up the kids from kindergarten/school. Definitly a spot I’ll visit again, hopefully soon, as you can see it has a lot of potential.
