While the canals of Amsterdam certainly drew my attention during my visit last fall, there were other scenes which caught my eye. Close-up details in Amsterdam can tell a story. This is an old city with much character.
I could easily spend a few weeks giving myself a photograph challenges to enjoy. Given my short visit as a tourist, I did manage to capture many photos of details in Amsterdam that stood out – from the yellow clogs used as signage or decoration, to interesting statues and stone reliefs on walls decorating old canal homes, to small things like a discarded chess piece.
When you travel, do you notice details or look at the overall scene?
