Reflections Of Amsterdam - Bye Bye Summer

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of a leaf in a puddle and the reflection of a biker and trees, in Amsterdam. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

I still can't believe that the Summer is over and that it's almost Christmas! Just a few more weeks and everybody will scramble to the Shoppingstreets go snap up presents for their loved ones, there will be lovely colorful lights everywhere and on every streetcorner you can buy the traditional snacks, the delicious, greasy Oliebollen and Appelflap...actually, that all sounds pretty enticing and now I'm hungry and really looking forward to it, lol :))

I'm a big fan of Christmas, even though it's a megacommercial event that seems to have lost touch with it's actual roots, the birth of a little Jewish boy that was willing to be nailed to a cross and die a slow, painful death to make up for the imperfections of his fellow men. Luckily the only people willing to die a slow, painful death these days is us smokers and we don't even require a cross, hahaha ;-D

Have a good start into the new week, almost weekend! And don't forget, Saturday you can meet me in the Stadsarchief and Sunday at the ABC Treehouse, find more information, including links to Google Maps, below!


Saturday November 7th you can see lots of my wicked reflections on a BIG screen during the Museumnacht at the Stadsarchief at the Vijzelstraat 32, 1017 HL Amsterdam, from 19:00 - 02:00!
