Today I had lunch on a terrace near the Bosbaan rowing track in Amsterdam. This weekend there is a large international rowing regatta. I made this handheld panorama. It is taken from the side of the finish.

As an alternative to the photo in the previous post you can see that the moment of exposure much decides the result of the photo. I like the contrast between the fragile flower and the powerful truck. This photo is just nice wallpaper to me.

Today when I cycled along the A10 highway South of Amsterdam. I saw a nice patch of poppy flowers (I think the Latin name is Papaver rhoeas). I like the delicate leafs of the flowers. Just behind this patch big trucks pass by. I liked the contrast.

Today I went cycling south of Amsterdam and on my way back I cycled along the Amstel river. When I sat on a bench I was fascinated by the rhythm of the road structure and tried to capture it.

On the beach at Scheveningen in the Netherlands they have a storage room for lost children. Of course the naming is a bit of fun by the fire department which runs the place. During summer days this is a busy place. I was there last Thursday to say goodbye to our old boss. We were a bit lost kids ourselves ;-)
