Surprising Amsterdam

I removed many ugly electric wires in the air,cigarette stumps etc. after making this shot.

The Zeedijk is a beautiful street in the old centre of Amsterdam. Once per year, in August, the "Hartjesdagen" take place on the Zeedijk featuring a parade of costume wearing participants. Men dressed as women and women dressed as men flock the Zeedijk and stroll from jury point to jury point in order to gather as much points as possible and gain the title of “Queen of the Zeedijk”.
