The Whores..., originally uploaded by AmsterS@m - The Wicked Reflectah.
Slightly edited shot of Amsterdam reflected on the window of the 'Bijenkorf'. Taken with my Sony HX1. No editing besides some added contrast and saturation, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)
The title of these pictures I've uploaded today sounds a bit rude, I mean, calling somebody the whore of Babylon, even if it's just a Mannequin made out of plastic, is not exactly nice, but since there is the 'Occupy Amsterdam' protest going on just around the corner of this beautiful building, where these promoters of commerce flaunt their artificial boobs and booties, to entice us to further overspend the money we don't have, on shiny, unnecessary goods (or rather bads, lol) and gadgets, that will rot in landfills for the next 7 trillion years, I think they nicely symbolize everything that those protesters came out in the streets against. So, sorry ladies, nothing personal, could have happened to anybody, but at least you make being part of Evil look nice, lol :D
