Skywatch Friday

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 http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Just some random shots of Amsterdam, the city where I was born, where I live and where I intend to die. But not just yet. The little girl you see is my daughter, taken when we where in Vondelpark a few days ago. Oh, and apparently I accidently cut off the head of some tourist. Can you find his head?

Bedankt voor je comment. De derde foto ken ik. Is dat niet het Kolkje? Mooie foto's. En leuk dochtertje!

Goed gezien, Reader Will! Was dinsdag met m'n zoon en m'n moeder bij de Chinees op de Wallen om haar verjaardag te vieren en in die buurt nam ik de meeste foto's die hier vandaag staan. En Eva is inderdaad fantastisch. Ze wil later met baby's gaan werken. Of met pony's "want die zijn ook leuk".

Wonderful shots! I wish I could capture such good shots with my camera let alone my mobile . . . :-))

Carver said...

These are all beautiful shots. I also love the one you did for the skywatch home page this week.

Amazing architecture. You have a gorgeous city, and an adorable daughter. Your guest shot for SkyWatch is lovely, the pink hue is very nice.

Came via Skywatch Friday, Congrats!!!!!

Do you travel both by boat and car?

Lovely photos. The one where you missed taking your aparttment, those low rise ones by the canal, do people live in them?

Barb said...

Your photos of urban architecture against the backdrop of the sky are awesome - a nice introduction for me to your city. Your child is adorable, of course! I really like the canal shot and the pink reflection in the water - very nice!

Hi Terrance, My husband and I were in your lovely city last May, and probably walked right past your apartment. We hope to visit again next year.

I really like your guest shot...so rosy pink! You have a lot of interesting sites to photograph in your city...the one of your daughter is lovely - love the perspective you shot it at. Happy skywatching....

Beautiful shots of your city!

Ik vond je foto van de woonboten heel mooi geslaagd. Dat is hetgeen me het meest bijgebleven toen ik een viertal dagen in Amsterdam verbleef. En zoals ze in Belgiƫ zeggen: 't was plezant in Amsterdam. Dochters zijn altijd leuk op deze leeftijd :-) "Ze vind baby's en pony's allebei even leuk", wij weten wel beter ;-).

Bravo, Terrence. I have mentioned you on my blog.

I like the canal shot, but all are nice.

Beautiful! I loved visiting Amsterdam. It is a beautiful city and you've captured it nicely in your photos.

Lovely shots of Amsterdam and sky. I particularly like the canal one and your daughter. CUTE! You have a good eye to get such good shots from a cell phone.

Arija said...

Your feature photo of the canal is lovely with the evening light reflected in it.
Thanks for your shots of your home town. I know the city centre reasonably well and it was nice to be reminded.

I particularly like the photo of the dam hotel - atmospheric.

I've never been to Amsterdam and your's are the most real photos I've seen of it...now I will add it to the bucket list.
