Ballsy!, originally uploaded by AmsterS@m - The Wicked Reflectah.

Slightly edited shot of a German car with window flags riding through Amsterdam. Taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. No editing besides some added contrast&saturation, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

It seems that the boring matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup have clouded the judgement of some visitors of the best city in the world in regards to the colors that they should be flying...I'm almost sure that that is not the Dutch flag hanging from the windows, which means that the driver of that car is either very ballsy and wants to see how far he/she can go, or is simply ignorant to possible dangers that a ride through the capital of the Netherlands with the wrong flag can entail...or, it's somebody who, like me, believes in the uniting, pacifying and border-crossing power of an international sports event that involves and captures a major part of the world population :-))

Today the German team will play against England, a traditionally interesting situation that hopefully won't end in another boring 90 minutes of midfield passes and tons of fouls to avoid getting the ball anywhere near their own goal boxes...if that happens, I will boycott the World least until tomorrow, when the Dutch team plays again, haha :-D
