Haarlem Train Depot

Here is a very cool train station with a old timey feel I found in Holland.

Golden Dome

Here is the top of that huge church from Haarlem. The latin came out very sharp and golden.

Street Urchin

I found this girl wandering through the streets of Amsterdam. She drew a lot of attention, even for Amsterdam.

Crowded Houses of Amsterdam

Homes in Amsterdam were originally taxed based on how “wide” they were, so that resulted in their unique architecture. I think it is interesting how government policies create interesting urbanization patterns.

Golden Rays

This is the shiny interior of a famous church in the Netherlands. The tiles are all ceramic, which make all the light and colors much more vibrant. You can see the afternoon sun streaming in from the right side.

This is Ulaf

Ulaf’s dream is to build engines for a top Formula One team.

Ulaf is currently operating a windmill in Haarlem. He takes his time when showing me how it works, telling me in great detail how the oak cogs were carved. He doesn’t get many visitors and he is excited that I want to know about all the machinery.

(this comes from my Portraits series)

Quaint Netherlands

Here are two interesting shots from Holland. I don’t really have much to say about them, other than they are two of my favorites.

Angry German Tourists

While I was looking at these angry German tourists in Amsterdam, I could not help but think they look like most German tourists.

After watching these two for a moment, it occured to me that it is difficult to know the difference between an angry, severe German tourist and a regular German tourist.

Reflections of the Excelsior

Here is one of the Amsterdam canals by night.

Thanks to Andrew Sullivan

Thanks Andrew for the mention on your cool blog… I’m honored. I offered to let him use the picture I took in his upcoming book, but I think it has already gone to print. I guess we just met too late.

Anyway, here is another trippy picture of Holland for Andrew; I know he had too many space cakes, and perhaps this is the passed-out-view he saw every morning when he awoke.
