During several of my trips through beautiful Vondelpark I was often captivated by the reflections in the waters. I love that some of these are clearly reflections of trees etc, but others have this strange abstract quality that disorientates you. Are you looking up at the sky or down into a reflection? Does it matter?:
Black and white:
While we are on the subject of reflections, here are a couple more images taken in Amsterdam:
Not quite the image I was hoping for, but still, here is a bicyclist in the city center riding after heavy downpours.
The shaky night view from my apartment, looking across into the lives of others:
These final two images are of a building opposite the main library in Amsterdam that I found interesting. There was something about the images I saw that captivated me and made me want to keep looking. Where did the reflection begin or end? What was part of the building? What wasn't and in the end, does it really matter? and it is about just enjoying what I see?:
