Fairy Tale

I took this on a quiet evening outside of Haarlem in the Dutch countryside. If I had taken it faster, you could have seen a few Hobbits fiddling in the garden.

Netherlands Sunset

I caputred this one across the water of some Dutch houses just after the sun went down.

Dutch Biker

Here is a mustard-coated Dutch Biker navigating the narrow streets of Amsterdam.

And these are some cool little houses I found all in a row in another part of the city:


Obsidian Walls

This is the interior of a cool church in Holland.

The Olde Train Station

Here is a very unusual shot I got of the train station in Amsterdam with this cool advertisement out front. At least, I think it is an advertisement.

Benevius Throckmorton the Fourth

I often use an outrageous photographer persona when trying to gain access to places I am not allowed, and that persona is super-bad-British-accent Benevius Throckmorton the Fourth, the National Geographic photographer who is too aloof to carry proper documentation and too aghast to understand why anyone would ask for such a thing.

You would be amazed that this persona has worked 100% of the time, and I get to take my camera into places where photographers are not normally allowed. The best place I infiltrated was the impervious Altar of the Duomo in Milan.
Below is a famous restaurant in Amsterdam that Benevius was allowed to photograph. This first picture is taken in an underground area where they keep all sorts of mysterious wines and meads that have been fermenting since the Renaissance. The second picture has some original Rembrandt sketches right above your dinner table.

Holland Town Hall

These two were taken at the town hall in Haarlem in the Netherlands.

Delicate Organ Paintings

Here is a really cool church I found in Amsterdam that had very nice paintings on the organ cover. You have to zoom in to see the Large version to see the detailed work.

Trip to Haarlem

Here are a few images from my trip to Haarlem. This first one comes from Amsterdam and it is where you can see about 10,000 bikes parked at the train station.

Holland Farmhouse

Kinetic Energy

I found this little girl concentrating hard on a chess match. She was embroiled in a match with about 25 other people all playing against a single Dutch champion that would run from table to table and play them all simultaneously.
