Week 31: AMS & Eindhoven

Filed under: — Administrator @ 14:14

This week I present some images on the fly from Amsterdam, where I walk around a lot on weekends, and from Eindhoven, where I work. At the end there are also a couple of images of a good friend who is unfortunately moving across the Atlantic and a couple of landscapes near my home.

Finally, two pictures of our friend Sandy. She is American but has lived in the Netherlands for several years and wanted to stay here. Unfortunately, circumstances forced her to move back to the USA. She spent the last few days before the trip with us.

Sandy is a good cook and treated us to a couple of dinners at our house:

  1. Nice stuff Nathan! Especially ‘Main’. I’d like to say nice things about all of them but it’s quicker to criticise (mildly) alt6 and 7 which I feel need a bit of shadows/highlight tweaking!

  2. I love the way the subjects pop out of the background on #1-3. I’m a big fan of longer lenses and limited D.o.F. It’s funny to see Harley riders wearing helmets. There are a few Harleys around my town-Milwaukee 😉 (A chuckle – I rode to the H-D 85th Anniversary party and parked my Honda CB-400T in the midst of thousands of Harleys.)
