First impressions of Topaz Impression

The little things in Amsterdam

The little things in Amsterdam

I am always carrying a list with me when I travel to any city, and the list contains all the big, important things I hope to photograph while I am there.  And I think that is a good thing.  But equally - if not more - important, is noticing, enjoying and photographing the little things that you see while out there.  They add a lot to your experience and enjoyment of a city.  So today, here's a few of the "little things" I enjoyed in Amsterdam!

How about we step back into history today?  Specifically, 16th century France - does that sound good?  It does to me, so I hope you will come along for the ride.  It's going to be fun, educational, colorful (of course!) and hopefully inspirational too!  Vive le France!  (or something like that)

The San Antonio Riverwalk

Have you ever visited San Antonio, TX?  It's very beautiful, especially the Riverwalk area, and especially at sunrise when there are no tourists in the way.  Have a look...I think you will enjoy these.  Oh, and I toss out a 5 year old sunset photo too, since I had forgotten about it.  No time like the present!
