Where is the menu?

14/05/2014

In an alleyway, just off Dam Square in Amsterdam, you will find Van Kerkwijk Cafe Restaurant. It is a great place to eat if you are looking for some delicious food and a nice and friendly atmosphere.

Van Kerkwijk

Sisters Myra and Rhya will take good care of you with their hospitality, and have done so for the past 16 years. They have many returning customers, a few of them were there when I visited.

You do not need to be put off by the fact that there is no menu, because there is! Myra will present the scrumptious options at your table and does not mind repeating them!

The building came with its very own guardian angel. Outside at first, it is now sitting snuggly near the window.

I enjoy combining current and historical images in my work, so I could not resist asking Myra (left) and Rhya to pose with their lovely photo of some years ago. Many thanks to them for saying yes and for a great experience!

La Boqueria market in Barcelona

Years ago I visited the La Boqueria market in Barcelona. The recommended length of visit is one to two hours, which says something about the scale of this market. The official name is Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, it is situated on the Rambla and has a long history.  I had a great time looking at the great variety of the, sometimes unfamiliar, items on sale, and tasting some.

Photos are taken with a Canon Powershot S50.

A few more images from the Asylum/Sanctuary assignment.

Sanctuary 2
Practicing narrow (or shallow) depth of field with an aperture of F5.

Sanctuary 2
Another one where I practiced narrow (shallow) depth of field. There were low light conditions, and my focal length was 135mm and F5.6 was the maximum aperture my lens would allow.

Sanctuary 2
In this image I like the framing and the soft colours. All in all it was a very good assignment to start us off with and to allow us to practice some techniques. Photos were taken with a Canon EOS D550, with an 18-135mm lens F3.5-F5.6. The lens suited me fine, except in low light situations with a long focal length where it would not go below F5.6.
