Walking in Amsterdam.


Today I am entering three memes so I had to find a photo that was good for all three.  I found it.
This is the Raadhuisstraat in Amsterdam centre, very well known and not far away from The Royal Palace.
On the other side of the road is the Westerkerk (Westerchurch) and in one or two windows on the right side of the photo you can see reflections of it. 
We did live in the neighborhood when I had only one baby many many years ago so when we went for a walk we often passed these shops . Nothing really changed here.

An amazing looking old building! I REALLY need to go there. I promise I won't go to the coffee shops (wink wink)...

Madelief said...

Wat een mooi Hollands plaatje Riet! Het is alweer een maand of twee geleden dat ik er voor het laatst ben geweeest. Binnenkort moet ik maar weer eens die kant op gaan. Kijken of er ergens een mooie tentoonstelling is.

Een fijn weekend!

Lieve groetjes van Madelief x

Fantastic serie of reflections.I like the mood of the street very much, and the very special architecture.

Wat een prachtig pand! Vaak vergeten we naar boven te kijken als we er zelf lopen, maar het is in Amsterdam meestal de moeite meer dan waard!

Fijn weekend! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Interesting architecture - brings back brief memories of 1980 when we stayed in the Krasnapolski not far from here I think.

What a lovely old building and the reflections are looking good too.

O heerlijk Riet weer een stukje uit mijn geboortestad tegen te komen. En inderdaad in dit soort straten zie je nauwelijks verandering in al die jaren.

Misschien ben ik een beetje kippig, heb toch mijn brilletje op mijn neus maar ik kan de reflection van de Westertoren niet vinden, ga zo nog rens goed kijken.....

Geniet van een heerlijk weekend,

Liefs Josephine

How wonderful to see a lovely scene like this and to know that it has not changed (or very little) over the years.

Congratulations for finding a photo that met the criteria for three memes - bravo!

Bon weekend,

Great pic, Riet! Have friends living there, and I wouldn't want major things changed in the inner city:)

The Dutch architecture is very distinct..

Marja Visscher said...

Dag Riet,
Mooi plaatje van een piepklein stukje van onze hoofdstad, die zoveel mooie plekjes heeft die een bezoekje waard zijn. Binnenkort gaan we weer eens naar de Looier en doen dat altijd ook een rondje binnenstad. Dat zijn altijd van die meersterlijke uitjes. Gaat nu weer goed weer worden, dus het lijkt me wel wat.
Fijn weekend en lieve groet, Marja

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

While looking at the photo I was trying to guess which memes you were joining this weekend. A great choice for all three, I got one!

Gemma Wiseman said...

A dramatic street view with amazing, tight detail in the architecture! This old building seems so well preserved!

Kelly said...

Ralph said...

That is a wonderful building! The shape is so unlike what we have, it is older and more classic in style. I like the outdoor seating at the restaurant - on a warm day, a fine place to dine and watch the world to pass by...

LV said...

One great scene covers many different post.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

There are shadows aplenty in this photo. I see "Utrecht" on the side of the building. Is that Utrecht Straat?
