A different angle

I consider myself a very lucky person to be living close to Amsterdam. Although I don't go to the city very often, when I do go I fall in love with the city a little bit more every time. Amsterdam is so beautiful and photogenic, that it is very hard to take a bad picture. Very hard... In this story I want to show you a "new" side of the city of canals; the reflected side. Hope you like it:) (All pictures in this story are taken and edited with iPhone5)

It's interesting to see how you can create a new dimension to a simple motive, simply by going down low.

And sometimes you have to enjoy the moment and simply capture what you see, traditional or not, beautiful still is simply beautiful:)
