Early December 2013, Wee Jim and me took a trip over to Amsterdam with Wesley and Morticia - probably the result of another drunken night at sometime when someone suggested we should go. I was last here around 1984 and not much has changed in all that time, it's still an incredibly vibrant and interesting city. Photography wise I wanted to try something a bit different here, so the Canon SLR was left at home and I took a little "point and shoot" Lumix compact camera with me which I could fit in my pocket. The picture quality isn't brilliant, but that didn't matter too much to me because the idea behind it was I wanted to have a go at something resembling, "Street Photography" (whatever that is). So, instead of the usual pretty pictures and lots of text this is Amsterdam as I see it - in pictures. No blurb just lots of photos (probably too many) with a bit of text under any photos that need it.
Walking to our hotel, near Dam Square
The hotel was originally a gold & diamond exchange and then a theatre,
the foyer is what was once the auditorium and these are the boxes.
Tulips seem to sell quite well in Amsterdam
Cheese is quite big here too.........
........and bikes - bikes are everywhere!
The junk market
Business as usual
Zuiderkerk, the first Protestant church to be built in Amsterdam
It takes a lot of concentration to roll a good spliff
The Hard Rock Bar, we walked all the way here just so I could buy a T shirt and get a beer at the same time!
Another bar - another beer
