Reflections Of Amsterdam - Keeping The Balance

Unedited shot of the restaurant 'De Waag' on the Nieuwmarkt in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Shot with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8, no editing, no tricks, no Photoshop :)

I like the area around the Nieuwmarkt, it's just around the corner from the world-famous Red Light District and our very own Chinatown, there are regular markets on the square with delicious (overprized!) healthy food and manymanymany bars, coffeeshops and restaurants surrounding the big open space, including my favorite Thai restaurant, a tinytiny place with 3 tables and an always smiling staff that makes such excellent, spicy-hot food that I wish I could live above the place and enjoy their meals every day :-P

On New Years Eve, there are usually big Fireworks going on that often resemble war scenes with people running for their lifes while being bombarded with rockets, firecrackers and any burning object that is suitable for being thrown in the air by drunk folks, it's fun to watch if you manage to find a safe'ish spot :)

Which reminds me, in 8 weeks it's Christmas again, don't forget to start looking for nice presents for your loved ones already, so you don't have to do it in December together with the rest of the world population, hehe :)

Thank God it's Friday :))))
