Photographer's Note

Amsterdam city is a perfect location to wandering.
Amsterdam, water city :

"The element which is the main source of wealth of the Dutch, is at the same time for them a continual cause of calamities. Water that spreads through their channels, the river that bathes their prairies, the sea waiting for their ships are implacable enemies against which one grows the ramparts, as one grows elsewhere against invasions of an army. In most large part of Holland, the floor is below the water..."

( Extract: Poésie populaire de la Hollande, X. Marmier, Revue des Deux Mondes, 1836 )
