Life In Amsterdam - We Are Family

Slightly edited shot of local people on their bikes, taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. No editing besides some added contrast&saturation :)

 

If you have ever been to the best city in the world, you'll know that we do almost everything on our bikes...we travel on them, we eat, we drink coffee, we smoke...sometimes we even make love on them and give birth to the occasional bike-baby, like the one you see in this picture...those bike-babies usually get born directly into the tiny extra-seat attached to most bikes and spend their first years firmly strapped into it, only to learn how to walk and survive in non-bike situations many years later...and that is why the King of Amsterdam spends so much time rolling through Amsterdam, watching over them, ensuring their safety and correct tire-pressure :))

 

Have a nice weekend!

   

I've also made some new black&white movies of a typical day in the best city in the world that you can enjoy on my YouTube page :)
