Hello everyone! I’m back! Well, sort of… I’m still getting into the swing of things, but feeling more grounded now. To kick-start the ‘after-the-holidays season’, I thought I’d share some of my holiday souvenirs with you. (We all bring something home with us from our holidays don’t we?) Ready? Here we go!
I love cycling, and was drawn to the sign (above) indicating a bicycle parking. Simple but very effective, right? The profusion of flowers, painted on the side walks along Vijzelstraat and Weteringschans were another welcome surprise, and I just couldn’t resist bringing some home with me,in the form of a snapshot…
On the Herengracht I was suddenly reminded of one of my favourite street artists, C215…
… as well as taken aback by this nostalgic image (above). Not sure what I think of it, but I found it interesting. What do you think?
Around the corner, on Haarlemmer Straat, I found these rather dotty pieces, and was surprised to find the one below is a in support of Barcelona people!! What are the chances?!
Is it a sculpture? Is it a play thing? My guess is, that it’s both. In any case, I like to see a funky insect like this one (above) which can also be played with, plonked on a square like this. It brings a smile to my face.
To wrap up my selection of souvenirs (from Amsterdam, in case you hadn’t guessed), two very lovely ones in (mostly) black & white. Any idea who the trumpet player is? If you do, please drop me a line in the comments or via email. Thanks!
