I amsterdam

This is a photograph of the 'I amsterdam' article!

Early 2014, I spent 3 beautiful days in the city of Amsterdam, in Netherlands.

Only about three hours drive from home, I had to pack and go there to see how it's made!
And I can tell you, it's made of...

Quick access

Bikes, bikes & bikes #

I know it's very very cliché but Amsterdam is REALLY the city where there are a lot of bikes.

People on bikes

You bet bikes are not only standing there to tease photographer creativity, it's also a challenge to grab the Amsterdammer riding their bikes... They are everywhere!

Winter light is the best! If you sit at the right place, at the right time and with the right angle, you can play a lot with the sunlight/backlight:

Remote secret places

The last day, the weather was so bright that I enjoyed myself wandering in non-touristy places to see what could I catch with my camera.

With a bit of perseverance, I could take my time to frame very random things... but bikes most of the time!

When you walk around, not just only watch your steps but look up and check out what the heights could bring.

Faces of Amsterdam

No. I did not shoot people's faces. Only buildings!

I mean, at least not real people's face.

Street life

The Dutch, they are one of the most traveler population; even thought these guys weren't probably Dutch.
