It was a sunny winter day and I happened to pass the back of the famous Flower Market in Amsterdam. I’ve walked down this stretch a million times but I guess with the bright sunshine, this scene, which I’m so familiar with, looked fresh and, well, new! I stopped to admire the gorgeous houses and the colourful floral walls of the Flower Market. I snapped this photo and then realised that this scene of the houses, flowers and bicycles really is so typical of Amsterdam. There’s a canal in there somewhere too. Hehe! Saying that this sums up Amsterdam in one photo is stretching it but it sure comes close.
