The Canals of Amsterdam

Amsterdam indeed lives up to its title of being the capital of The Netherlands, there are tons and tons of people in the street. I was a bit intimidated at first to shoot with the throngs of European people moving en masse, but I got on with the flow after a few clicks of the shutter.

We visited canals after canals surrounding the center of the city; Amsterdam is not nicknamed as the Venice of The Netherlands for nothing. I love everything about the city; its postcard perfect architecture, the multitude of bikes, the trains, even the infamous red light district, the restaurants, the quirky stores, the food and most especially the grand canals. All of these make me want to quickly find flights to Amsterdam again, and I’m not even halfway through my vacation.
