Foodism in Amsterdam

Walking around Amsterdam in 2009 I saw this couple clearly enjoying themselves on a sunny day and was able to quickly take a photo. I like street photography and this groovy scene works very well, the colours are bright, the animated conversation, the hair and bare feet of the woman (which is not common in Holland), the colour of her dress, her coloured bag lying on the floor, the green shawl on the man’s head, and the sign “Sorry we’re Open”. The great name of the small restaurant: “Foodism” is an added bonus.  On their website, the restaurant offers some nice recipies and if you are interested please click here. Enjoy!

    What a little cute picture! Before I read the intro I would guess this’ a typical World Travel magazine shot. The color contrast is strong and obvious, the signs and symbols are well complimenting the concept of the photo, most of all, the characters looks perfectly relaxed and enjoying themselves, spontaneous!

    I love this photo. The colours work beautifully with the people and the body language. I can chop the bit above the pink sign. Cool vision!
