City Mixture


I always love how cities blend with nature, art and architecture. Some people might find it messy, dirty or too crowded, but you have to admit, cities has it's charms, some more pictures of Amsterdam...


Furniture made with mosaic, looks like a huge open air living room.



Nature is fighting with the bricks and stone...




The famous painting of Rembrandt, 'Nachtwacht' (The Nightwatch), has been made in huge statues on the Rembrandts square in Amsterdam, the drawing is in 2D also impressive.




Little homes with gardens all captured on boats on the canals are quite normal in Amsterdam.



A not so normal view where these geese in the middle of the road.



And a friendly Grasshopper desided to say hello to me.

It is indeed a marvelous place to visit, my brother owns one of those canal houses, and I love to stay over there. But am always very glad to escape again into the open air.
