Into the night
Beams of light and falling rain
Light that cast shadows
Lines that meet and move away
I take a last look before I move on
Feeling the weight of my camera
My hand holding it, caressing it
A feeling of just knowing
That what is, is just right.
Into the night we go.
Going against gravity
Using what seems to be opposite to you
To get better in what you already are
Knowing that someone who is caring
is watching you.

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 :-).
