Koningsdag – King’s Day Orange Celebration


Today, 27 April is the birthday of King Willem Alexander, King of  the Netherlands, but yesterday it was celebrated with the first King’s Day (Koningsdag) in the whole country. I was in Amsterdam and the atmosphere was great and orange! People are very creative with what they are wearing and also what they are selling.

San Francisco Store Windows




Yes man

There is a nice atmosphere in San Francisco’s district The Castro, made famous by gay rights activist and politician Harvey Milk. He had a photography store called Castro Camera from where he led his campaigns. I enjoyed the creative and colourful window displays.

While in San Francisco I went to various parts of town, and this series was taken in Chinatown. As your eye does not automatically gets drawn to it, I like to point out the white chair on the left of the top two images. Is that what I think it is?….
