I kind of raved about Utrecht as opposed to Amsterdam in my last post but that does not mean that I dislike Amsterdam, definitely not.  Let me explain.  Amsterdam is loved by most tourists and loved but also hated by a lot of your Dutch fellow earthlings…It happens to be that I know quite a lot of people who live in Amsterdam, so I guess I can consider myself a regular visitor. My bias is on the positive side but many are intimated by the quite rude and arrogant attitude which seems to be the norm in Amsterdam. The by-pass around Amsterdam is often referred as the fine line between everything hip & happening (Amsterdam) and rest of the Netherlands: rural and dull. Oh well, at least Amsterdam is a fine place to take pictures, like this one which is taken in the Amsterdam Central Station. This woman and the lighting got my attention, so I quickly took the picture. Too fast as I needed to crop the picture considerably afterwards. I enjoy observing  people passing by, although I know I am prone to stare at people which can be quite creepy I guess…it’s just about being fascinated about people and enjoying the seemingly ordinary things around us🙂.

  1. Nice picture Vince. I too visited Amsterdam many years ago, but only for a brief few days. We also have something else in common in that we both like to watch people interact in their natural surroundings.

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks Todd! Well, I guess that makes us great photographers, don’t you agree?😉
