Partners

For The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This photo was taken in Amsterdam when I visited Lucile on King’s Day. I thought they looked so cool standing there, like models posing for a photo shoot. I love this photo (even though it’s not so sharp) and have never shared it before. I have desaturated the colours slightly – I like the effect this gives, a more muted look. I think Lucile has virtually the same shot, as we were shoulder to shoulder at the front of the boat, snapping away furiously.

I am again feeling reminiscent about my trip there, longing to go back.

Sometimes, when I read the prompt, I have no idea what to post. But today, I knew right away that this is the one I wanted. 

Happy Weekend everyone!

  1. A great piece of photo-larceny. A couple perfectly placed between bikes and flower-boxes.

    Great picture, Desley. πŸ™‚ My first thought was that they look like models! I could easily imagine seeing the image on an advert of some sort.

    Oh my goodness! it looks as though they are posing for you between the window boxes. And how serendipitous to have a bike in the image too. So Amsterdam! Love this one DJ πŸ™‚
