So, just for the halibut, how about no collages today and only single images I picked out from last week's post on our Mozart Requiem concert in Amsterdam on February 17. Most of these have or will end up on my Shutterchance photoblog. But for those of you who don't visit there, here they are, in the order in which they were taken:
The Magere Brug (bridge) spans the Amstel River in Amsterdam.
Different view of the same bridge and river.
I had fun with this reflection of the Rijksmuseum on a sunny day. With a bit of manipulation and flipping the image, I tried to make it look like Rembrandt's famous Night Watch on display there.
You know by now that I love tweaking images, just for the halibut!
I don't want all my images to look like tourist snapshots. HA!
(and yes, that's the Rijksmueum from the Museumplein side)
Whenever I can get away with it, I love to do selective coloring!
This red carpet on the Concertgebouw stairway seemed a perfect candidate for it.
Lucky for us, a gratis drink came with our ticket. How could we say NO!
I always say "Always look up!"
So I did, while in my seat before the concert began.
As I said to Astrid, how could eveything be out of focus except her!
Yup! Another candidate for selective coloring.
But THIS is the one that still tickles me to no end.
Don't you just love it when you are so pleased with yourself!
That's Jelle on the left looking at Olga on the right and giving his approval, I assume.
The maestro's hands. He's no flash in the pan!
Pieter Jan Leusink is the director, signing CDs after the concert.
One last candidate for selective coloring as we passed through Vondel Park to Wagamama.
I don't care what anyone says, sometimes it's fun to play around...
...just for the halibut!
