Amsterdam – it’s a strange place. On the one hand I absolutely enjoyed wandering its canals and quaint historic streets. But I was put off this Dutch city by its red light district. It was seedy, creepy and made me feel quite uncomfortable. Perhaps more so than I have ever felt in Europe. But I’m certainly glad that I’ve been there myself to make up my own mind.
Despite the best attempts of the weather, we still had a great time. It rained on us for about three quarters of time we were there non-stop. So unusually for me the majority of my shots were taken indoors. On Saturday there was a small break in the downpour and I managed to get my camera out. I’m still a bit nervous with my NEX 6 in the rain, and I don’t like the hassle of having to make sure the lens is clear of raindrops. If anybody has any tips for shooting in the rain please let me know! These are four of the best shots I got over the weekend. Which is your favourite: A, B, C, or D?
