Amsterdam, Herengracht and Leidsegracht

It’s hard for me to look back. I remember when I shot this. It was March of 2015 and the idea of going back to Canada was becoming more real by the day. I went out with my camera and tried to capture how I, at times, saw this beautiful …

The Pink Flamingos Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo

Something a little different this week. Weeks ago in a cold winter day, I had the idea of making a long exposure of the flamingos at the Artis, the wonderful zoo in Amsterdam. I had hoped that most of them would be standing still and sleeping, and I got lucky, as …

A foggy evening on the Pastoorbrug in Amsterdam

Taken quite a few weeks ago when Amsterdam was covered in a thick winter fog. This area of Amsterdam is one of the most picturesque, as well as one of the oldest. Starting from the Brouwersgracht over in the Joordan, and stretching into the medieval core of the city, it is one …

What Would it be Like to See The Milky Way over Amsterdam?

Maybe it would be something like this. The stars of the Milky Way over the river Amstel in Amsterdam, could perhaps look this way if they could be seen. Inspiration sometimes comes from places where you least expect it. Often it is already there just waiting to be discovered. Which …

Amsterdam Wesport long exposure

For the last few days, I’ve been participating in the 5 days of Black and White challenge over on Facebook.  As such I’ve been looking through my archives for suitable images to use in the challenge. Which brings me to this image. Taken a while back, it’s been sitting pretty …

Project 52: Week 6

Week 6 was down to the wire. A busy week, led to having me concept, shoot and process this in just a few hours today. Need to make sure I at least give myself more time for the concept this week. If you are lucky enough to have one of …

Gigantic Snow Flakes in Amsterdam

  We had a nice little snow storm yesterday here in Amsterdam, where the snow flakes were anything but little. The city quickly turned into something that looked like out of a movie set. The snow quickly covered everyone and everything, yet it was just beautiful to look at and …

Project 52: Week 1

So I’ve decided to start a 52 week self portrait project. I plan on posting one new self-portrait every Sunday, this is the first. Hope you don’t get sick of looking at my face 🙂 Taken at the last minute this evening, in a foggy Vondel Park.

OVO – The Amsterdam Light Festival

Took a chance this past Saturday, and walked up the Amstel river in Amsterdam, to take a look at the Boulevard of Light, an exhibit that is part of this years Amsterdam Light Festival. This is OVO, by far the best of the installations along the Amstel. Worth a visit, with shows …

Let me show you the world in my eyes

This is a view typically not associated with Amsterdam Centraal Station, but it is located in the back of the iconic station where the local bus lines operate from. Taken almost to the day one year ago during some intense fog we had in Amsterdam. This is actually a re-processed …
