Last day in Amsterdam

Our last day in Amsterdam, filled with pictures of boats and canals.



Wedding Cake Toppers in Amsterdam

These wedding cake toppers are so unique.  They are made by hand by Peter en Jeannette in Amsterdam.  Some are for gay couples, some for a reluctant groom, and there is one of a pregnant bride that Jeannette had just finished that morning. (peter.dave@hotmail.com)

OUR TIPS FOR TRAVELING WITH CAMERA EQUIPMENT

OUR LIST OF FAVORITE EQUIPMENT FOR TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY

It was a little tricky traveling after the Viking boat crashed and we were left in Strasbourg, but we finally arrived in Amsterdam (a couple of days early).

Traveling with camera equipment can get a little tricky, so we have listed some of our favorite tips for making it easier.

  • Take only your favorite camera and lenses
  • use a comfortable cross-body camera case
  • always carry a polarizer
  • use watertight and shock resistant equipment
  • put gel packets in the camera case

Strasbourg France

Really nice having some down time while traveling.  Just leisurely wandering instead of rushing to the next planned activity.

French haute Couture designer Cleone

CAMERA AND LENS DETAILS LISTED ON THIS BLOG POST IN THE RIGHT COLUMN

While in Strasbourg, Tony and I stopped to admire the exquisite wedding dresses at the boutique shop of haute couture designer Cleone, and actually met the designer herself. The dresses are incredibly imaginative.  I would love to be invited to a runway show for the next collection – I can’t wait to see what she will design next. [Strasbourg, France – October 2, 2013]


Viking Cruise crashes

CAMERA AND LENS DETAILS LISTED ON THIS BLOG POST IN THE RIGHT COLUMN

Our relaxing river cruise has ended before it hardly got started!  The Viking Sun, part of the Viking River Cruise line crashed into a structure on the side of the canal at 2:30 in the morning (news article).  Our cabin was below the water level, so we went topside where we took these pictures of the damage.  We were near Strasbourg, so eventually the boat was evacuated and we were taken to Strasbourg, which was the end of our river cruise.  I guess you have to be flexible when you travel, since you never know what is going to happen!!
