Looks like quite a bit of work. Enjoyed the slideshow.

5 men for 5 weeks or so. That ain't cheap, but worth a lot of admiration.

Wow, that's a lot of work.

I love the pic of the boy on the captain's wheel. Leave it to boys to find the fun.

Let me tell you something. What is going on here with these images is precision. I am in awe of this silent story-telling. They say every picture says a thousand words, but I disagree. Elsewhere, I have seen thousands of pictures and not one word comes to mind. But when I see this, I see a story. Vivid. I won’t start, but I notice the juxtaposition of the barge in trees. The damaged arm of a worker. You love with your eyes.

There is real effort in this, with no other objective that to please. I am very grateful.

Take care.

What beautiful photos, Koos!
I love the childrens' faces - they look exquisitely bored...
The photographer and friends in the dingy is very spontaneous and very well composed.
The pics of the tug taken at sundown give a "good day's work done" point of view, as well as great lighting.
Are those "men in red" the restorers taking a much-needed break?

I always love a glimpse into your way of life on the water in the middle of Rotterdam!

Was that in France?
I noticed the French on the front of the bus... exceptional driving.

Koos... I have to go to the library to watch your slideshow... but on your post two posts ago... I love your face... not only are you handsome, your face speaks of much laughter, and love, and friendship.... one day I will see your face in person... and I look so forward to kissing that cheek...

This page is worth keeping. It contains the most wonderful comments on any blogpage ever (no scientific evidence needed).
Thanks Grace, Anne-Marie, Paul, Dale and Stevie (blush included).

Great pics, telling a great story!

The "K" on the funnel reminds me of a comic strip, made by Marten Toonder, I used to read as a kid. It was a story about "Kappie" and his tugboat "Kraak"!
"Succes" sure is a copy of "Kraak"! :)

Koos F said...

Thanks Hans.
Gee, I never knew Kappie had been translated. I loved those stories too, although my favourites remain the Bommel and Tom Poes stories.

Hans said...

Yup, Kappie was translated into swedish and run for several years as a daily strip in the largest swedish speaking newsletter here in Finland in the middle of the fifties. It was later replaced by Tom Poes in the same newsletter.
