My 7D loves Eindhoven

Eindhoven is a municipality and a city located in the province of North Brabant in the south of the Netherlands. The city counts 213,809 inhabitants (1 January 2010), which makes it the fifth-largest city of the Netherlands. The agglomeration has some 440,000 inhabitants. The metropolitan area (which includes Helmond) has nearly 750,000 inhabitants.

The written history of Eindhoven started in 1232, when Duke Hendrik I of Brabant granted city rights to Endehoven, then a small town right on the confluence of the Dommel and Gender streams. Just outside of the city walls stood a small castle. Around 1388, the city's fortifications were strengthened further. During the French occupation, Eindhoven suffered again with many of its houses destroyed by the invading forces. Eindhoven remained a minor city after that until the start of the industrial revolution.

Industrialization brought population growth to Eindhoven. Industrial activities initially centred around tobacco and textile and boomed with the rise of lighting and electronics giant Philips, which was founded as a light bulb manufacturing company in Eindhoven in 1891. In 1920, the five surrounding neighbouring municipalities were incorporated into the new Groot-Eindhoven ("Greater Eindhoven") municipality.

In the 2000s decade, Eindhoven emerged as the capital of Dutch industrial design, technology and light. PSV Eindhoven is the major football (soccer) club in the city. Playing in the Philips Stadion it is one of the dominant clubs in the Netherlands' top-ranked league, the Eredivisie.

This serie provides a brief overview of Eindhoven. Photo's are taken with a Canon 7D and the Canon 10-22 and Canon 24-105 lenses. Enjoy.
