My other business takes me…or at least used to take me…to Amsterdam often. It has now been almost a year since I have been and oddly, I find myself missing amazing Amsterdam more than any other city.
I have a routine in Amsterdam. A favorite hotel, the Hyatt Regency, a favorite coffee (not pot) shop, Bakhuys. Holland is a country I drive in. I no longer need navi when I take Rijksweg 4 to Rotterdam. The people are lovely, the food delicious, and it is a clean and beautiful city. And the architecture…among my favorite in the world.
Albert Dros, a resident of Amsterdam, created a beautiful 4K time lapse video of his city, which is worth five minutes of your time:
The video charts the beauty of the four seasons, the stunning canals, and the gorgeous architecture that make Amsterdam such a unique city.
Check out Dros’s website here, which includes additional info about his project and superb still photos.
I’m a bit of a amateur photographer myself (hey, after over a decade of taking pictures onboard airplanes and visiting 139 countries you do learn something…) and would love to re-create a similar series for Los Angeles. With 4K (and even 8K) technology readily available, the only thing required is patience, plenty of hard drive space, and a good eye for photos.
In the meantime, I cannot wait to return to amazing Amsterdam.
What city do you hope to visit most once pandemic restrictions are lifted?
