    I once saw photos from Amsterdam of the mid-20th century. It looks much the same today… the canals, the boats, the bikes, the little shops… – I love how history is so alive here.

      I can only imagine – would love to see those. The buildings seem so perfectly preserved and have such a unique style that I’m sure it does look just the same. Was noticing all the modern buildings on the way to the airport today – outside of the tourist centre, of course. Glad they kept it that way!

    An excellent study of Amsterdam. Just look at that palette of Dutch colours – you can see Van Gogh in that sunken boat on the canal :) Great memories of a charismatic city.

      I know! I’m terrible at handing over the new camera to John, haha. Have plenty of nice portrait shots of him if you like, though =)

    Love Amsterdam.  Really like your B&W shots, but that one of the rowboat I think is my favorite.

    Lovely photos (as always), guys! It’s nice to be reminded occasionally that Amsterdam is about more than head shops and the red light district. Not that there’s anything wrong with head shops and the red light district…

      Thanks so much, Bret! Yeah, no photos allowed in the red light and I try to respect the privacy of those in the coffee shops as well so no photos there – but I definitely feel like those two things are a huge part of Amsterdam too!
