Street photography in Amsterdam

Today in Amsterdam. Strolled around for a few hours doing street photography before getting to the hotel.

Tänään Amsterdamissa. Muutama tunti katukuvausta.

Amsterdam boats – Amsterdamin veneet

On Saturday 24th September it seemed that everyone with a boat in Amsterdam was out on the canals partying. All kinds of boats to small to quite big…

The swans are also on the move.

Boat full of young having a party….

Amsterdam bicycles – Amsterdamin pyörät

Nobody knows how many bicycles there are in Amsterdam. In the following photos just a few of them that we saw while riding the bike… There is a lot boats too – the next posting will be about them. 

Here’s a Citroën DS too. I believe the best place to see them is Amsterdam.

We were in Amsterdam on 24th and 25th September. I’ll post more photo’s at my smugmug site.

Foggy Holland

I had some spare time also on the second day on my trip to Holland but unfortunately the country was totally in fog. Probably typical at this time of the year. But I was carrying my tripod wit me so I could take some pictures even in the fog. I was staying close to Biesbosch National Park and was trying to get some kind of impression of it with not much time. The car’s navigator took me to the National Park center but I couldn’t find anything there – or see a lot for that matter. Fog.

The two other pictures are from Geertruidenberg closeby still trying to find my way into Biesbosch – which probably is not possible without a boat. Geertruidenberg was covered with fog and the roughly cut trees seemed ghostly. But I wasn’t satisfied with how I was abe to catch the atmosphere.


Last year Jurrien gave me a wonderful site seeing at Amersfoort in Holland. This time I made a short visit again to Amersfoort with my camera and tripod for a few pictures. It was afternoon and December so I didn’t have much time and I covered only a fraction of the town and its beautiful canals and old streets. Here are a few pics which I have transformed partly black&white; because it was grey December anyway.

Amsterdamin pyörät

Amsterdamin pyörien paljous ja monimuotoisuus on ainutlaatuista. niiden vangitseminen kuvaan on sitten eri asia. tässä muutama esimerkki. kahden tai kolmen lapsen kuljettaminen tangolla ja ohjaustangolla on kuitenkin vielä kuvaamatta, samoin kuin lastenkuljetuslavat… ehkä ensi kerralla.
