Autumn weekend in Amsterdam

Amsterdam, 2016 #0003

As of writing this, I have honestly lost count of what day-of-week it is, what planet I’m on, and if it’s the Third or Fourth Age here on Middle Earth. It might be the Age of Corona, actually.

I’ve been to Amsterdam twice, but not at the time of shooting. Having the first time visit in late October panned out perfectly; especially photography-wise.

I contemplated to give this blog post the title “Canals, butterflies and small, weird cars: A sightseer’s guide to Amsterdam”. Naaah. Just keep in mind; it will mostly be canals, butterflies and small weird cars. Seriously.

Something (i.e. the Paris wheel) about this gives me the “Pripyat feeling”.

Aight. Ducks. All the ducks. Was not disappointed:

Second car of this blog post: shockingly hideous! If not for the ananas* this should have been banished and burnt years ago.
*…just stop it with the nonsensical “pineapple” already, we’ve had enough…and don’t get me started on “ghoti”…

…now to something not shockingly hideous; butterflies!

Ahhh…. A trip to Hortus Botanicus can really be recommended! Just be aware that your camera will fog up 150 % for the first 10-15 minutes…

Who in the right minds would not love to live here?

Third, and last car of this blog post: ugly as fuck, but not shockingly hideous. Also, red is kinda nice.

Now… bring me out of quarantine and back here. NAOW!

Please.
