Snapshots #6: Dutch Life

snapshots16

I’m a bit of an amateur photographer – I studied photography at A Level, and it’s always been a hobby of mine. Snapshots is the feature where I share some of that photography! All of the photos link to my Flickr account, in case you’re interested in viewing more.

Today’s theme is: Dutch Life. Snapshots I’ve taken in other cities but Leiden!

Rotterdam – one of the few areas I found that looked typically ‘Dutch’.

Rotterdam – as you can see, a contrast to the scene above.

Amsterdam Loves You//widgets.flickr.com/embedr/embedr.js

Amsterdam – someone has painted over the Cookie Monster now though…

Haarlem//widgets.flickr.com/embedr/embedr.js

Haarlem – I need to go back!

Delft – this was in either Oudekerk or Nieuwekerk, I can’t remember which!

This looks sugar-coated!

I love how you can see the reflection of my garden in this one.

These are not regular sized daisies, as several people on Flickr thought. Not sure how I’d manage that…

I miss my old camera for its macro…

Stadhuis (town hall)

This bit could be Oxford. If you just ignore the Dutch above the door of course…

These aren’t as high quality as normal as they were taken on my phone!

At one of the millponds nearby.

Same millpond as above. The area is now a college for adults with learning disabilities, but most of the grounds are open to the public.

The Oude Rijn in Leiden, I will be moving to this beautiful city in a couple of weeks!

I think this is the only time I’ve seen a red dragonfly. They’re normally blue or green!

https://www.flickr.com/photos/izzyplayle/4714627996/in/photostream/player/

This is one of my favourites. He was a gorgeous colour!

Having a snack.
