Amsterdam in photographs

Today, is an Eline-day! What’s an Eline-day, you ask? It’s a day where I cancel plans to take time to celebrate life by doing something that I thoroughly enjoy. I must admit that I’ve badly neglected these days, but this summer marks a fresh start. What is needed for an Eline-day, you ask? Oh, very simple. A camera, a journal and headphones are some of the essentials, often a train ticket, city guide and some money need to be included as well. Today’s adventure will take me to Amsterdam, where I will just stroll around, visit cute vintage shops, maybe buy a book or a scarf, sit in a park, search for a good cappuccino and observe people with my pen and camera. Fun sometimes needs to be the only purpose of a day.

Travel within Dutch borders – featuring Amsterdam. I don’t need to tell her story; the city’s history and character is plainly painted on every wall, hidden in every corner and floating through the canals.

Photographs taken with my Canon7d, 18-135 mm lens.

Below are ‘stand-alones’. These are photographs that are not necessarily showing the city’s face, but are stories in itself, in just one shot.
