Amsterdam/details

The first four images were shot in Rembrandt’s studio.  When I travel the moments that stay with me are the details.  I’ve trained my eye to look closer at things because looking too big can overwhelm my senses sometimes.  The photos taken in Rembrandt’s studio were so remarkable to me because of the quality of light.  No wonder he created the work he did, even on a grey day the north facing light was beyond stunning.

Amsterdam/graffiti

Graffiti never fails to inspire me artistically.  I’m now thinking about the empty walls of my garage…so many possibilities.

Amsterdam/design

I took this photograph in the oldest church in Amsterdam. This room truly made me swoon.  I might use this image as the place I go to in my head when the world’s just too much.

This church is in the red-light district—it was founded in 1213 and consecrated in 1306.  After the Reformation it became a Calvinist church.  Here’s a link with more information.

These globes and the plants were in the street front windows of an apartment.

Amsterdam/street photography

I love street photography.  The raw moment when something sparks me.  Be sure to scroll down and check out the pigeon slideshow.  My daughter Willa had an interesting encounter near the royal palace.
