It is a lovely tradition in Amsterdam to put a matress or two outside a bar window and have the best of both worlds in a good weather! On my last day in Amsterdam I just couldn't resist to ask a company of strangers if I could take a picture... If you are in the picture, say hi ;)

bird house

The cool red birdhouse looked interesting (and not unnoticed by all photobloggers on Amsterdam stroll:)... It was a little too far though and I don't own a telephoto lens so I tried something different. I put a really wide angle on (12mm) and jumped to get a different perspective. Here is what I've got.

The data:

  • Camera: Canon EOS 5D
  • Lens: Sigma 12-14 @ 12mm
  • 1/60
  • f/6.3
  • ISO 1600

bicyclist in pink sweater


After countless shots of girls on bicycles (really, call me crazy but that's all I could see for the first few days:) I had this one and I felt this is the best bicycle shot I had from Amstermdam right after I took it... I didn't have any idea how blurred it would be, but it was late enough and dark enough that it really became just pink mist...

color coordinated bicycles: black


I didn't quite expect black to even be in this series but it just was there - big black barge with a small black bicycle in the garden...

color coordinated bicycles: purple


Time to actually post something from Amsterdam...

First things first. For first few days it is just hard not to just see bicycles all around you... And I have a "color coordinated bicycles" series to continue ;) I have to get all colors now... There was blue and red. This is third, purple...


back online...


Two weeks of travel + upgraded Picasa can no longer post to my blog. I finally have figured out the software steps to post, so pictures from Amsterdam and from Moscow are coming shortly...

This one is out of order, taken yesterday (10/13) and posted back via time-machine to leave space for the backlog of pictures:)

The portrait is from a series from Lera dance improvisation, very low light many pictures with motion blur, there will be a few more from the series...
