The Sudden Trip to Amsterdam, pt. 6: Last Saturday

Let's talk about last Saturday.  The 4th.  

Here's the train station in the morning on my way to work.  Yeah, I worked on Saturday.  It was a serious project!

Co-worker Josh.

Co-worker Ron.

Dutch subway.


Worked about half a day and then took to the streets of downtown Amsterdam once more.

Waaaaiiitt a second.  What's that I see?

The little camera shop had a super-rare Noctilux f/1.0 on hand.  I tested it out a bit.  Like with this pic.

Leica Noctilux 50mm f/1.0 

vs. Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1  See much of a difference?  Better said, do you see a four thousand dollar difference?

So, yeah, there was a lot of this sort of joking around over there.

Had lunch at Burger Bar.  You will definitely be hearing more about the Burger Bar in these here parts.

Co-worker Alex.

Dutch dusk.

Never got any automat food.

Dam square.

Grochts in the Nine Streets neighborhood.

West Church, I believe.

Lots of shops had cats living in them.

I never set foot in a Coffeeshop.  But if I had, it'd have been one like this.

Nor did I take a canal cruise, but if I had, I'd want it to be in an icebreaker like this one.

Can we be mature about it and admit that this sign is a little bit funny?

Began noticing bunnies around town.

Did not see a lot of traditional old-timey Dutch stuff.

West Church skulls.

That's the Anne Frank House on the left.

When I walked by there was barely any line so I took advantage of the opportunity and went inside and learned.


West Church.  Definitely.

I'd like to be able to say I got one of these.
