Shot these in Amsterdam and Bruges.
Actually, these were locks that control the flow in one of the many canals in the Netherlands. But from afar, I was reminded of the AT-AT Walkers from Star Wars (original below):
Even in black and white, the city of Amsterdam is beautiful. Especially at night. Click on any one picture to see them in slideshow format.
Or, given that canals are just as good a means of transportation as streets in other cities, maybe I should call this post ‘canal photography.’ It was a warm and sunny day, so life spilled onto the sidewalk, stairways, and boats. Click any image to see them in slideshow format:
This film museum in Amsterdam opened in 2012, and is across the river from the Central Station. Great architecture!
I didn’t see any strollers in Amsterdam: Kids either walked with their parents or they were ferried around on bikes. And helmets? Didn’t see any of those, either. And pets of course got the same treatment. 🙂

I had the pleasure of having a professional photographer named Tom show me around Amsterdam at night, and teach me about night photography. I arranged it through Photo tours of Amsterdam, and was extremely happy with the tour, which lasted from 10:15pm (when it was still light out) until 1:45am. I can highly recommend it. Here are some samples from that night’s work. Click on any one picture to see them in slideshow format.
