I think I’ve already mentioned that I took a lot of photos during my 50 hours with the lovely Lucile in Amsterdam, so I wanted to share the photos gradually with you.

Today, I’m sharing my black and white images of the people of Amsterdam. Some of these were taken during a walk through the city, and the others were taken from our boat on the canal. I was lucky enough to be there for King’s Day, celebrating the King’s birthday and we took the boat out into the city canals to join the party. It was a great day, full of sunshine and music and laughter and people. I loved it.


All shots were taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 camera, mostly using the 45mm (90mm equivalent) lens. I’m adding these to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic, of course!

    And King’s Day seems like lots of fun..I remember Lucile had posted about it and it must be a big celebration! I’m glad you got the chance to experience it!
