Yesterday I went to the 'Uitmarkt', the opening of the cultural season in Amsterdam, the Public Library OBA and Artis Zoo; all in one day…

I took over 300 photos and it took me all evening to sort them out into 'keepers' and 'shredders'. I won't bore you with the whole lot that I eventually selected —that's stil about 50! From those 50 I made another selection which I put on Flickr and here I'll show an even smaller group.

I saw too many things to write everything in an extensive blog post, so you'll have to make do with just the pictures and the captions.

red, white and blue (shipyard on Hoogte Kadijk)

don't panic! (Amsterdam galleon)

saxaphone player (Public Library OBA)

colour (windows of the Amsterdam Conservatory CvA)

resting your feet (IJ harbour near Muziekgebouw)

ant farm (Muziekgebouw)

sluuurrrppp... (Marion, dinner break in the OBA)

now where did she go? (Lemurland in Artis Zoo)

Cool photo's. I like the windows and the sax player. Obviously taken with a more than decent camera :-)

Kees, no update today either? Is everything okay? I don't want to find out that you're lying on the floor somewhere in a diabetic coma!

felt exactly the same, so I called him. He's absolutely fine but extreeeeemely busy.

Thanks Renate! I should have just phoned myself, but the time difference always gets the better of me!
