Blankenberge I

For several months, I came regularly to Blankenberge at night.
But why this particular sea resort ? Simply because it's the one I know best. In addition, I spent a lot of years being young, logical that I am attached.
But this time, I took my camera with me.

This gallery presents my first night shots. Result deplorable, I will have to train a bit... And to make matters worse, a very violent wind further degrades the camerawork conditions. But either, I have to start one day, right ?
Otherwise, the lack of people in the streets and on the dike made me happy. Finally, I like bad weather.

The Casino. Rebuilt between 1932 and 1934, it was made ugly and "updated" recently. From the original style, only the silhouette of the building remains.

The ugliest coastline of the North Sea...

One of the few old buildings to resist. But it doesn't have any longer.

The Blankenberge Pier. Unique construction on the Belgian coast, it was inaugurated in 1933 and replaces the original Pier (1894) destroyed by the Germans in 1914. It was renovated in depth and reopened in 2003. The building was totally denatured.

The new bridge of the Pier. Not really recommended for those who suffer from vertigo. Closed now because of the damage caused by the storm.
