Travel Photo of the Day (April 10)

I spied these characters in Amsterdam. I tried to snap a photo without being noticed. I think I failed. I didn't stick around.

    Run … the look mean…

  2. I often try to take photos like these of the old boys in my village but it’s tricky!

  3. Ooooh, look out, they’re coming to get you now!! LOL

    I’m not good at being inconspicuous when taking photographs, that’s why I rarely do street photography. Maybe someday.
    (I wonder if these characters had just been in one of the “coffeeshops.”)

    • TBM says:

      They may have. I didn’t ask any questions 🙂 Street photography is difficult. I always want them to look natural but I have a habit of getting caught.

    Colorful characters!!

    Yep, the guy with the goatee beard has definitely made you!
    Lynn 😀

  7. Well at least I can say with some degree of certainty that I haven’t met these particular ‘characters’ yet 😉 I’m taking that as a win!

  8. I have always wanted to go to Amsterdam….Is it great? What did you like about it?

    • TBM says:

      We only spent 3 days there, but from what I saw, I love it. It has a feel of its own: the canals, history, art, the freedoms, and the attitude of acceptance. I found it to be a very welcoming carefree place to visit. Not a lot of stress, except when crossing the street. Bike riders will run you over!

  9. pattisj says:

    At least they didn’t chase you!

  10. Guilezilla says:

    Hahaha “you think” you failed? You failed, sister! Look at that man! Not that they would do anything, would they?

  11. The Hook says:

    I would have retreated too!

  12. Novroz says:

    What makes you interested with them?
