Reflections of Amsterdam

Posted: March 30th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Art, photography | Tags: , , , , , , | 4 Comments »

Amstersam specializes in beautiful photographs of reflections in Amsterdam. Many of the photographs are taken of puddles with people, buildings, and bicycles in the reflection. This is such an interesting way to incorporate all of the water in this city.  Even though I’m constantly splashing my legs with water on my bike,  I’ve never really thought of Amsterdam as a city of puddles until I came across this.  Check out his flickr profile for more Amsterdam reflections.

Amsterdam Wedding Celebration

I love this photograph. Photographer Jeff Phillips takes black and white street photographs and develops the film in his kitchen sink. This picture looks like it was taken in the forties with the women in hats and men wearing classic suits. The preserved historical architecture in this city makes it really easy to replicate historical happenings though I’m pretty sure this photograph was taken last year for a modern wedding. Really beautiful.
