amsterdam... first impressions








Funky, bohemian, happy, charming, laid back.... cosy. 

Thank you for all your well wishes! We had a great time. I took about 500 pictures. Don´t run for the hills just yet. I´ll probably only post about 300...

P.S. Cityscapes= A picture of your city.

Looks fabulous. When I lived in the UK, I so should have gone to Holland...I never got round to it..now I am in NZ. So thanks for sharing, look forward to the next 300 images.

malo said...

It looks so great. Reminds me a little bit of Copenhagen but maybe not in real life?

Ian said...

Amsterdam first impressions, I thought you would say, it's not Spain :)

outi said...

ooh looks lovely! i have always wanted to go there, now i want even more:)
beautiful reflections!

Allison said...

It looks like several others have beat me to the "punch line" to tell you... lovely photos. Since Amsterdam is just a hop, skip, and a jump from here, I really should make it a point to go, but it seems as though most of our trips are to the other side of the pond... did you happen to run into Kay while you were there?

Cris Siqueira said...

Janet said...

wow! i think you put together what we call a "coffee table book." Really spectacular photos!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Love these pictures. Can't wait to see more. Now I'm off to lament my inability to master "settings" on my camera. If I took those same shots - they would all be grainy and/or blurry.
