FT-meeting in the lovely and intimate city of Zwolle.
Grote Kerkplein 15, Zwolle, prov. Overijssel, Holland.

At the top left: gothic 'old city hall' which is the last remaining part of the old city hall from 1448, of which three essential parts (community house, city wine house and council tower) were demolished. The new (1976) city hall (below) was built under the architecture of Ir. J. van Konijnenburg. In the old city hall we can still find a Council Hall and the so called Aldermen Hall, designed by Johan van Campen en Berend van Coblenz, with a.o. portraits of members of the House of Oranje-Nassau.

Het gotische 'oude raadhuis' is het laatste fragment van het oude stadhuis uit 1448, waarvan het Meentehuis, het Stadswijnhuis en de Raadstoren zijn gesloopt. Het nieuwe stadhuis (uit 1976) werd gebouwd onder architectuur van Ir. J. van Konijnenburg. Het oude stadhuis bevat nu nog de Raadzaal en de Schepenzaal, naar ontwerp van Mr. Johan van Campen en Berend van Coblenz, met o.a. portretten van het huis van Oranje Nassau.

At the top right of the picture (in front of the new part of the city hall) we can find a bronze statue of Adam made by Auguste Rodin (12 November 1840 – 17 November 1917). The statue was made by Rodin in 1881 and placed in Zwolle in 1965.

i love rodin and the facade of the city hall is very modern and eye catching.

i wonder if it is not distracting to go on a photoshoot with a whole group of fotothingers, or any other people. i feel best hunting alone

Me too dear Junne!
I want to go back to Zwolle to walk around again all by myself and make more and other pictures...
But: to meet eleven other good humoured FT-ers on such a beautiful day in autumn under such splendid weather conditions and walk around in this enchanting city with a lot of monumental architecture was 'a day to remember'...
