Good Night, Amsterdam

Maybe it's funny to post something so evening-y on a sunny Monday morning, but these are the final Amsterdam photos I need to post to complete the story. I really haven't figured out the best way to take night time pictures with my camera, but I think I like the blurry effect these photos have, since it captures for me the fleeting nature of night, where boundaries are blurred, and nothing looks exactly as it does in the daytime.

Farewell, Amsterdam! I hope to be back another time!
