If you're an aspiring photographer, perhaps like me, you'll like the most egalitarian form of photography -- street photography. Anyone with a camera and the guts to take photos of strangers can practically do it. This weekend, I joined two Meetups. On Saturday, we headed over to Westerpark to take photos of the cherry blossoms and on Sunday, I joined a street photography walk. I enjoyed the latter very much although I probably won't join another street photowalk for the simple reason that people get uncomfortable when they see big ass lenses. My camera is very small and I tend to use a tiny lens so when I take street photos, it's very discreet and unthreatening.
We went around the city center and after an hour and a half of walking, I managed to take 93 photos but ended up with only 8 that I really liked. Here are my top photos this weekend in chronological order. I wanted to post them in black and white but my boyfriend convinced me that these photos are better off in color. So without further ado, here's candid Amsterdam.
