Foggy Photo Walk… #netherlands #photography #travel

Yesterday was such a wonderful day.  It has been cold here, but we spent the whole day walking to one of our favourite areas and taking photos of the surrounds.  The weather was so foggy, it seemed nearly impossible to take a bad photo!

IMG_5699I spent a lot of time yesterday experimenting with various raindrop photos.  I am by no means a photographer, but I am happy with how some of these turned out.

The fog lent a mysterious air to our photos and made everything look dreamy and antiquated.

Before it got dark we got some really great shots, almost in sepia tone with a reddish hue.  My only regret is that my lens is dirty and you can see some definite dirt in some of the shots.  Maybe that just makes the shots look older? Haha.

I really enjoy these long meandering photo walks and it’s so nice to be able to do these walks in the winter.  I hope you enjoyed some of my photos!

The Beautiful Tuschinski Theatre

Haltusch

Yesterday we went to Amsterdam and finally got to go to the historical and amazingly beautiful Tuschinski Cinema.  This theatre is for sure the most beautiful cinema I have ever been to and it was hard to not fall flat on my face as I walked around ogling the beautiful interior.  It has an amazing history, that survived the nazis, despite the fact that the owner did not, having been killed in the concentration camps.

We saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and it was the perfect environment to watch a film from one of my favourite directors.  The beautiful set design of the Grand Budapest Hotel wove seemingly seamless with the interior of the theatre and it felt as though I was being pulled between both worlds at the same time.  Please go visit this theatre when you are in Amsterdam.
