This was another long exposure outside of this radical apartment complex in Rotterdam. We stopped here along the European tour for another drunken night of partying and taking photos. One can make an argument that most of the European tour had too many drunken nights. Another can make an argument there was just the right amount. I have a bizarre ability to take some rather interesting photos when inebriated. I’m not necessarily proud of this, but it does seem to be at least somewhat true.
The so-called 5 Day Deal now only has 3 days left. If you’re just getting started with photography, or even been at it for a while, there is more than enough in here for you to enjoy. It includes a special tutorial I made in Venice at https://stuckincustoms.com/links/5daydeal
I think almost everyone ONLY thinks of Amsterdam when they go to the Netherlands, but I recommend you go here, to Rotterdam. Actually, I also recommend a trip to the Hague and Utrecht – two other beautiful places to visit!
Daily Photo – Amazing Rotterdam
I had a great time wandering around Rotterdam at night. We had a great dinner across the river and then came down to start taking photos. As is often the case with me, I wander off on my own and the team loses track of me. But that’s okay… I’m fairly self-sufficient. So, along the way, I found this spot along the river. I thought the colors and shapes were amazing, so I hung out here for about 15 minutes waiting for the right moment.
I was thinking of adding a RANDOM PHOTO button to the website. What do you think of that? I worry a BIT because some of my older photos are not that awesome. Or, actually, they are way way way below awesome. Maybe if I could figure out how the randomizer could be a photo in the last five years… hmmm… just brainstorming here!
Daily Photo – Midnight Walk in Rotterdam
It was only one night in Rotterdam, but what a great night for photos! The city is so artsy and has such amazing lighting. It’s almost a bit sci-fi and futuristic, as you can see from this spot. One strange thing I found about the city: at night, there was almost no one walking around. Many other European cities have people roaming every which way, but not here. Maybe it’s because I was in this area that didn’t have any bars or nightlife… I didn’t really visit that area of town… never even found it. I was just mostly aimlessly wandering and getting lost, which is a favorite thing to do in new cities!
If you’re into meditation (or even want to just try it for a few days), I recommend the new version of the “Headspace” app. All the basic stuff is free, and I think you’ll enjoy it. Why not make 10 minutes for your awesome mind to relax a bit?
Daily Photo – Adventuring in Rotterdam
I don’t have many regrets from the road trip across Europe, but maybe one is not stopping in enough other cities other than the big ones. This was one little side-stop we made in Rotterdam, a very cool city that I had never visited. It was a very artsy place, with wacky sculptures and street art all over the place… All the art gave the city a very nice texture; and it’s another pin in the map to return to some day with more time! 🙂
