Oh Vienna

Amsterdam / Street photography

Dam Square

I joined a real street photographer for an afternoon walk through Amsterdam and some hanging around Dam Square. Like a good studio photographer I shot about 600 pictures, while he shot about twenty. When I uploaded them to my computer, the one above actually came as a surprise. It was as if I had not made that photograph. It didn’t even seem to be taken in Amsterdam. One would think it was taken in Vienna. Of course we do have some horses and carriages in the city for sightseeing purposes, but that does not explain the way the child is dressed. He or she looks like a character straight out of Visconti’s film Death in Venice.
