Life In Amsterdam - The Caring King

Slightly edited shot of the King of Amsterdam on his bike, taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. No editing besides some added contrast&saturation :)

 

Bow down, it's the King of Amsterdam on his daily royal inspection round of the best city in the world! You might not know this, but secretly we have our very own king and he's not related to the official Dutch Royal Family in any way...he's just this regular guy (he doesn't even wear shoes, that's how much he wants to show us that he's one of us!) who spends his time biking around all day long, making sure that everybody is having a good time, that the bicycles, women and children are safe from mischievous souls and that the pigeons don't eat too many tourists that dare feeding them by having them sit all over their visiting, delicious bodies...what a guy, all Hail to the Caring King :D

 

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 :)
