Reflections Of Amsterdam - Red White Blue

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of buildings close to the Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Almost no editing, just a touch of added contrast, no other magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

This shot contains all the colors that make up the Dutch national flag, Red, White and Blue. It may not be the prettiest flag in the world and it can easily be mistaken for the French Tricolore, but still I like it, I always see a bunch of happy cows in front of my inner eye, peacefully grazing somewhere in the vast, flat countryside that makes up a major part of this lovely country, I see the beautiful girls cruising through the best city in the world on their funky bikes and I see the Dutch national soccer team supported by the best fans in the world, playing like kings, only to always get kicked out of every important tournament in the least likely moment, often undeserved and under tragic circumstances ;-))

Welcome to Holland, one of the best countries in the world :)))
