amsterdam streets

I loved taking pictures of the streets in Amsterdam. I loved all the old canals, endless bikes, and houses that lined the streets. I loved the busy market places full of tulip bulbs and fresh flowers. I loved  how the streets were full of so many different forms of transportation from pedestrians, bicycles, scooters, buses, cars, and trams. I loved how it was a city  on the brink of spring.  There was a certain charm and appeal that Amsterdam had, that I can’t quite put my finger on. I tried to capture some of that charm in my photos. amsterdam-1548amsterdam-1505amsterdam-1516 amsterdam-1524amsterdam-1530 amsterdam-1539 amsterdam-1546 amsterdam-1547amsterdam-1513amsterdam-1570amsterdam-1573 amsterdam-1576 amsterdam-1583amsterdam-1600 amsterdam-1618 amsterdam-1619 amsterdam-1635

    Beautiful!! And you’re in a jacket with a scarf!! Significant detail if you live in the tropics. I’m from Holland, Michigan so it’s fun to see my town’s namesake for real.

      Thank so much for your kind words!! I mostly use my 35mm Nikon fixed lens! I also have a Tamron 28-75mm one that is a bit bigger that I bring with me on my trips. However, I only take 1 lens with me when I go out for the day. The trick is that I edit my photos using Adobe Lightroom 4. Do you use a DSLR camera as well??

        I do. I use a Canon Rebel XS. I love my 50mm fixed lens! I call it my nifty fifty! I have a lens like you describe that has a range (it’s not with me, so I forget the range), but I really don’t like it much. I just got a wide angle lens, which I’m excited about, but I haven’t been able to master it yet. My pics are turning out slightly blurry, but when I look at the image on the little screen, it looks fine. It’s not until I get home and load them to my computer that I realize they are blurry. I don’t ever edit my photos. Maybe that’s the issue. Thanks for the info!
