Is there any place in the world you haven't trotted?

I used the word verification when I got spam at one of my posts. It stopped.

Nice photo, have never been to Amsterdam, looks a little like Bruges in Belgium from the photo. Have a good Sunday!

Andy said...

A bridge and lovers. Interesting combination.

This is one of your best shots ever, Francisca. I don't care much for memes, but you've done really well here - the colors and light are great and the composition is perfect and it has a tremendous romantic interest. I really, really like it!

So interesting about your "seasonal" business and how you can tell where those ornaments come from - even the factory...really? That's amazing.

I don't do Xmas anymore, but Lois puts up a nice little tree - subdued but effective.

What a terrific shadow shot for the day, Francisca! Such a lovely place to sit and watch the water, but I suspect the two in the photo are more interested in watching each other! But whatever, the view for us is delightful! Hope you have a great week ahead!

Just beautiful! A perfect photograph. I hesitate about taking people pictures, but you have done it in such a tasteful way and it adds so much to your photograph. You inspire me to try.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You should be very pleased! He is majestic and perfectly "captured."

Amsterdam must have many, many lovely bridges. What a great city for people who like being near water. :)

Gorgeous shadow photo and I love this glimpse of Amsterdam ...I was there nearly 40 years ago ;-) ...and i loved it.

JM said...

Lovely composition! Amsterdam is just great.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Such a romantic photo!

Regarding the bottle sculpture, I don't recall if they're painted on the inside. I see so much art, it's hard to keep track. But regardless, I liked it and I'm glad you took an interest, Francisca!

Kaori said...

SO romantic! What a gorgeous scene with all the classy houses and the river :-)
