Here in The Hague, I like to wander around and take photos of local places, sights and things I think are of architectural or social interest.
One item has consistently caught my eye and attracted the attention of my camera lens: Electricity Substations in various parts of the city have been painted up by artists in a multitude of styles.
I love them because I believe that any effort to brighten and make a colourful and positive city landscape should be encouraged and applauded.
I have been taking photographs of them at any opportunity and have a small series on the blog about the ones I have found so far.
This sub-station is on the Vulkenboslaan close to Edisonstraat and I took the photos at the very beginning of Spring which I think was a good moment because the trees are obscuring it’s full glory a little now that they are in full summer leaf.
And the view from the other side…
