Instagram roundup – Fruit & Oil

Since having moved to Rotterdam I have a whole new area to recon, so about once a week I’ll pick an area to go wander around in. This week just some random spots in town & a first foray out to the more industrial areas.

The Rotterdam Fruit Exchange building is a local favorite. The building has monument status now, and with 10 phone booths built into it, it should. Interior photos of the place here. You can rent it out for events, seats 400.

A week later I looped out into the harbour & through the Benelux tunnel. Not pictured below due to insuffiecient levels of instagrammability (pretty heavy fog out that day); 2 cable-laying ships, the MAMMOET hq, container repair/storage yards, crude oil storage tanks. There’s stuff.

The ground is soft underfoot along the side of the road out here. Hasn’t settled back down yet from having the pipes buried underneath it that pump the oil across the network of refinery facilities. There’s no footpath here, but it’s not an area designed for humans to be strolling around.

‘REPORT HERE’ the sign says.

Pristine landscape.
