To celebrate the announcement this week that Amsterdam’s Canal District was added to the UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list – I bring you Amsterdam.
The homes along the ring canals of Amsterdam are famous. The 17th century residences of wealthy merchants, financiers, craftsmen, doctors, lawyers, politicians and artists are characterized by big, narrow windows and decorative gable tops. My sunny days were few and far between in Amsterdam, however when the sun did come out, and the skies cleared to show how brilliantly blue they could be, I ran outside with my camera!
If you’d like to see more travel photos this Friday, hop on over to Briefcase to Backpack’s Photo Friday, where I demonstrate how to use rain and clouds to your advantage in photography!
