Antwerp - Luchtbal station

Antwerp - Luchtbal station is in the north of Antwerp, I believe it is the last station going out Antwerp. Now this area of Antwerp ,Luchtbal, is one big social project. Long ago there were nice litle houses and probably good to live. Now it is almost al social housing, must say that the city has invested a lot of money in it to make it appealing to live. I grew up in social housing and it is not all bad, this area is a bit on the negative side.

The station, if you could call it a station is just some perrons and tracks. No shop, no ticket office , just a all lot of nothing. I would not want that my daughter has to take the train there alone.

The lens used that day was my vintage Sun lens. What I still like the feel of.

And somebody was photobombing that day, yeap you guessed it, my litle girl.

Walking up to the station.

The sweet photobomber in #10 was a nice surprise after so many rather eerie scenes of this empty station.

Your photograph work is always appreciated Peter. I have never been to Antwerp and probably wont ever get there so your images are so interesting for me. Thanks brother

Love looking at the graffiti. There are some very cool ones here and some very dark.

I can't remember why, but I once had to wait for the train there. Antwerp has more than one station I'm not particularly fond of, but Luchtbal is definitely amongst the ones I like least.

Sad, that this idiot with the white spray can painted over some of the very good graffities...

Yeap , tagging is a big problem. Some nice works are destroyed. Some are gang related.
