Skywatch Friday: Queensday

Six instead of the usual four pictures I tend to show on SWF but that's because it was Queensday on april 30th. The day we Dutch celebrate the Queen's mom's birthday I took these shots in my hometown of Amsterdam:

My son, me and a neighbour joined in the gigantic fleemarket the country is that day:

At a popular side-entrance of Vondelpark there stands a church called Vondelkerk (Vondelchurch)

In the park people chat, relax, listen to little girls trying to play the violin:

Vondelpark is renown for inventive games like this one:"Insult the shoe and win a gold nugget"

Coming out of Vondelpark you pass Max Euwe plein, which leads to Leidseplein:

In the distance you can see Leidseplein-square, the populair drinking-scene:

Note: Every SWF-picture published here is shot with my trusty Nokia N93 mobile phone and is unedited. For more Skywatch Friday photo's from around the globe, please check

P.s. Hope to have a "real" camera soon! 'll Keep you posted!

Mooi sfeerbeeld, Terrence. De gebeurtenissen in Apeldoorn waren op dat moment blijkbaar nog niet tot de hoofdstad doorgedrongen ...

Nog even n.a.v. je opmerking van vorige week: zelf fotografeer ik met de Canon Powershot SX1 IS. Voor mijn gevoel is dit een ideale alles-in-één camera, omdat ik geen zin heb om met meerdere lenzen rond te sjouwen. Over een goede spiegelreflex kan ik je dan ook geen advies geven.
Maak er een mooi weekend van!
