Had to think of a gift for a birthday boy whose hobby is cooking so I went to the best professional cooking store we have in Amsterdam, Duikelman. Great store but that also makes the choice very difficult. In the end I took a gift certificate.

Around this time 2 years ago.

Then we had the Floriade with a cable car that brought you from on side to the other. Everything is gone now again with a loss of  €200.000.000 for the municipality and guess what.  Construction plans for the new housing development have foundered on a terrible row between the municipality and the project developers. Cause obviously money again.

Linking bodies jewel

While visiting the graduation show at the Rietveld academy the day before yesterday, my brother, his girlfriend and I were invited by the creator of this people connecting jewel by the creator Martina Bucci from Italy to give it a try. A so called linking body jewel made of glass beads and tied together.

With this as result. Tomorrow more. (Header composition of the entrance of the academy)

Waiting rooms

Sitting here a little too much these days but yes old age.

This evening Holland-Austria

True fanatics took a moment to get their homes in the mood for tonight's soccer game. Wonder how soon it will be gone again.

Bird's eye view

 In the great hall of the Amsterdam ethnographic museum, a large group of paper birds flew.

Praying kestrel

View of the Central Station Amsterdam from the 8th floor of the former CS Post office now demolished and made way for the booking com office.)

The Deventer Waag

A roof of doves


In a fit of insanity I deleted all my photos from the weekend and only have the previews from Lrc left. Well before you have a usable picture of that it takes a few lessons but now I know.

They still exist

 Food for hobbyists and inveterate veterans.

 For photo subjects on the street, you don't have to walk far. The subjects present themselves automatically.

Sometimes I don't even know why I make them but just find it striking for some reason like these 2 identical bags and the obvious faux leather look of it all not to mention the color.

Following a boat

Instead of a 28mm wide-angle I use a 70-300mm zoom lens, following Stefan Jansson's blog Photos from Haninge, Stockholm and Södertörn. No hip shots but it gives a nice picture of the city and what is happening. Here a rather noisy company outing passed under the Keizersgracht/Reguliersgracht bridge.
