The next Amsterdam Scenes, here's no. 42, tourists !
Of course you can find them in lots of cities.
In Amsterdam, we have MacBike ( macbike.nl ) where you can hire a bike and see the city by yourself.
So now and then you have to find out, where you are and where to go:-))
It would be nice, if these persons could find themselves here, please let me know:-))

you have caught the moment very well,the puzzled looks on the touring cyclists faces is very typical,I`m surprised to see that no cycle helmets are being used....
In some parts of the world these are compulsary I believe.

I've never been to Amsterdam. The system that allows tourists hire bikes is fabulous. I will consider it if I have chance to visit Amsterdam.

Bonjour, cher ami Hans,
L'idée est bonne et très intéressante, visiter la ville à bicyclette permet d'apprécier davantage les monuments et les us et coutumes du pays.
Une image prise sur le vif.

Dit are duidelijk toeristen met hun huurfietsen.
Ik ben er van overtuigt dat dit een van de beste vervoermiddelen is in de stad met zijn duizend bruggen.
Lang geleden dat ik nog in Amsterdam was, alle steden veranderen wel wat in de gepasseerde jaren.
Wat ik zo mooi vind aan uw foto, is the wazige achtergrond waardoor de portretten veel meer aandacht krijgen.
Goed foto werk Hans.
Groeten uit een zwaarbewolkt Vlaanderen,

Like this scene a lot! People, you have photographed, look superb natural and interesting. Well observed and taken street life scene. TFS!

I love this candid capture that's so clear and sharp, has great depth and presents an interesting street scene that has a delightful (for the viewer:) intensity. The tight framing enhances this feeling and the scene with the three people dealing with the situation in their individual way is very attractive. You've captured some important details in this tight frame, like the logo of the bike service and the flag in the background. I love the play of light, the substantial natural colours and the overall balanced illumination. Congratulations and thank you! Thank you so much for kind comments!
All the best, have a great evening,

Yes, this is very familiar scene for me, I was here in 1999. And I'd like to come back to this picturesque city. Good journalist photo work, excellent presentation of a daily life street situation.

If there's ever the perfect city to ride a bike, this has to be the one! :) It was certainly one of my favorite activities and best vacation memories I've had, and allowed me to see more of Amsterdam than I would have ever expected. Great candid shot, these types of images and scenes always leave something to the imagination...where are they going, what is he looking at, what's on the itinerary??? A well captured moment of expression and intrigue. Have a great day ahead. All the best.
