Street Art & Graffiti, Amsterdam
I take pictures of these kinds of creations in every city I visit. This one is a huge snake at the façade of whole building. It was colorful and attractive, although I haven't noticed it since I walked the sidewalk across the road.
It was on the Spuistraat.
Certain streets have artwork displayed. Its easy to miss, and sometimes the artwork was done by children. Also, in the past two months I've noticed blue boxes near a construction site. They were built into the fence. These small shoebox size boxes have a "window" you can look in, and inside contains various scenery. Its a nice surprise to come across, and adds to the charm of the city.
There is so much to see in Amsterdam but when you walk around a little bit you can see things most people don't see.
One day I walked around and not far away from the center of Amsterdam I saw these funny statues of these animals which are similar to the Komodo dragons.
It seems the pigeons near these animals aren't afraid at all ;-)
Just a little Amsterdam housboat with trees reflected in canal (the Singelgracht) with a little bit of "artistic" graffiti thrown in to complete the scene.
I can't recall what side street this photo was taken on, but I believe it was a news publishers' office.
Just a nice pic...
