A summer day in Amsterdam

While walking down the city’s streets on this splendid afternoon, the smell of joy lies in the air, and it feels fantastic. A light breeze blows through the streets and asks the tree’s leaves for a dance. As their approval is not long in coming, they soon begin to rustle, forming a shallow well-balanced melody on this summer day in Amsterdam.

At a second glance, however, other elements break with this perfect picture. They create apparent contrasts and strongly differentiate from each other – incorrectly played notes of the shallow well-balanced melody. As others walk by on the narrow footpaths, looking for the same that I am chasing, I understand that it seems to be the whole picture’s different aspects that combine and form a complete work of joy.

I took this photo in July 2021 at Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. You can see a houseboat in front of the building “De Duif” on a beautiful summer day in Amsterdam. De Duif is a former church that today is used for events. You can find this building at the famous Prinsengracht in the city center.
