Unedited shot of a biker in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Taken with my Sony HX1. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

In this picture you can see a yellow crane in the background, it belongs to the construction crew that is building a new Metro-line right smack through the middle of the best city in the world, connecting the North with the South, underneath an existing Tram-line, causing whole streets to sag and nearly fall into the construction hole. This giant project was started a looooong time ago and was supposed to be finished years ago (2012), but as it goes with megalomaniac projects, it's way over budget and it's taking tons of extra time, giving us locals the impression that it will never get done, and if it does, it will cost us so much $$$ that we'll have to sell it to the Chinese Government right away to at least have some spare change for a coffee&smoke, to calm down our nerves when we think about the incompetence and mindless, eager urge to create something that nobody needs, that our great leaders are suffering from. But that might just be my own humble feeling, I'm sure there's somebody out there who feels that this was an awesome idea, and that we should continue throwing money into this bottomless pit, lol :)

Have a nice weekend :)
