While walking along the sixth floor balcony of our hostel in the red light district of Amsterdam, I noticed this abandoned home. You really don’t see any abandonments in downtown Amsterdam and this was sort of eerie how this house was in the middle of a strip of beautiful homes. I wish I could get inside but that last thing I needed to worry about was getting caught by Police in the middle of my vacation!

The RAW files for this shot have been chilling out on my hard drive for 4 months and I've constantly fought with a coherent idea that resulted in many copies being thrown in the trash. Some days you're just more creative than others!
