Reflections Of Amsterdam - Lord Roadblock

Unedited shot of the best bike in the world, Lord Bikenheimer, blocking traffic in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

Today the FIFA World Cup starts, and to make sure that everything goes smoothly, the fabulous Lord Bikenheimer decided to position herself as a living Roadblock in the downtown Amsterdam area, hoping that by channeling the stream of people in certain directions, she'll be able to positively contribute to the well-being and safety of locals and visitors alike, who roam the streets in search of the biggest outdoor screen and the cheapest beer...

Personally I think it's rather cocky of a bike to expect to single-wheeledly warrant the safety of thens of thousands of drunk, excited people in a crazy place like Amsterdam, but since she's got to make up for the little incident she's got me in earlier this week, I figured why not let her give it her best shot, can't harm to try...and as you can tell by the happy faces of the tourists in this picture, they totally appreciate it, haha :)

Have a great start of the World Cup, may your team win!

I've also filmed the Lord blocking the road, watch the movie on my YouTube page :)
