Summer in the city

September 1st marks the traditional end of the summer. School is on again, and most people are back from holidays. Antwerp celebrated the last days of August with plenty of sun and fun. And everyone ventured out for the last bits of summer laziness...

Scattered throughout the city, there were some festivities to close the vacation and tourist season. On that Sunday, a crane took up a platform some 50 meters above the streets for an unusual view on the Town Hall, the Schelde river and (out of frame) on the Cathedral. Too bad you were not allowed to get closer to the railings or even to move up or around...

This last image summarizes it all: time to grab that final moment of rest before the 'normal' madness resumes!
