A Stroll around the Roeterseiland Campus in Amsterdam

Roeterseiland

The Roeterseiland Campus is an open city campus of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The campus is situated in the eastern part of Amsterdam, a neighbourhood with houses predominantly built in the 19th century. In the midst of this historical “Plantage neighbourhood” you find the campus which is finished in the summer of 2018.

Also, important in Amsterdam: a large bicycle parking facility and a new bridge across the water at the main entrances has been added to the campus.

Mimi’s Green Hands Algorithm Collection

Green Hands

Let’s show a small selection of images with green hands, why not?! They came to us by means of an algorithm: and we, at Mimi Berlin, “don’t look a given horse in the mouth”
Have a Nice Day! xoxo Mimi

Sometimes a social media algorithm works in your favor. These images of green hands for example are a real good ‘image editing’ subject for us at Mimi Berlin. For these kinds of matching images we used to search and collect for weeks on end. Nowadays they just are a gift, too easy and boring for us. That’s why our ‘image editing‘ posts are quite limited these days.
