Reflections Of Amsterdam - More Seagulls!

Unedited shot of tourists and bikers in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

Yesterday I shared my feelings about tourists walking in the middle of the road with you, and just in case you thought I made the whole thing up, here's another shot of the same couple, this time surrounded by bikes having to maneuver around them and more tourists standing in the street, wondering why everybody is honking at can clearly see that the biker to the left is getting his big chain lock ready to smack the next obstacle in its deserving face...

I would like to say the following to that angry biker: "Calm down young man, everybody has the right, no the duty, the obligation, to visit the best city in the world at least once in their life time, so who are we to bitch about them not being able to distinguish the street from the sidewalk, maybe they are from very poor countries, where they don't have sidewalks, and the whole principle of separating the motorized traffic from their soft, mushy bodies is simply alien to them...and hey, why am I sitting on this foreign looking guy's chest, pounding his face into the pavement with my own big chain lock?!", or something to that tune, hahaha ;-D

Have a great day, enjoy the sunshine, try to do only fun things today!
