The original plan was to visit the recently reopend Rijksmuseum. Some of the most important Dutch works of art can be seen here, like the Night Watch. When we arrived, the line was crazy long, so we decided we should come back another time. Instead, we went to Foam (the photography musem). The highlight was the exhibition Best Before End, with photo's made by English photographer Stephen Gill. If you're interested in , here's a bit more info, including a short video.
Sunday also happened to be the Open Garden Days. The museum's garden is usually closed to the public, but yesterday we were allowed to have a little look in the garden. I did feel a bit silly, that people came especially for the garden of the museum, and that I was only having eyes for an old fence. I am sure there were some very special plants and flowers.
That is a good fence! Haha. I frequently will be taking pictures of something, and then look up and see people staring at me like trying to figure out "what's she looking at?" or "why is she taking a photo of that?" :)ReplyDelete
I've never been to Amsterdam and always wanted to go. I can't wait to see more of your day!
Such beautiful photos!ReplyDelete

Haha, well, it is a very interesting old fence! I enjoyed the bits of the photography exhibit that you captured as well.ReplyDelete
I've been to the Rijksmuseum and I'm longing to go back!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about taking tons of photos (that's why I broke up my post too, btw the gardens are in Winterswijk-Kotten).
I LOVE the fence photos. I try not to be self-conscious taking pictures eventhough other people stare at me too ;-)
