Let me pick up where I left off a few posts ago. Adjusting my lens a bit, zooming in, focus.
Setting: (again) Skinny Bridge over the river Amstel.
It starts with the top photo: Mother & daughter chatting up a storm, having a laugh.Approaching the intersection, the mother gently gestures to her offspring to hold...and checks the (right of way) road for (bicycle) traffic.A split second later: yes, it's clear.The girl needs to step it up a bit, while the conversation continues....and it eases even more on the way down. Time to adjust your earmuffs. Blast, that wind!
Setting: on top of a brick bridge over a side canal of the River Amstel, not far from Skinny Bridge.
Topic: interaction. One difference with Scene 1: the interaction is with me.
I see these two fellas approaching, one of them is ghost riding, a familiar scene in Amsterdam.Just how familiar ghost riding is you see here: he spots me & makes the effort to wave at me. Not a wobble.Then they start laughing. Probably at the fact that they can't figure out why on earth anyone would be interested in a taking a photo of them.The boys continue, comfortably, in their natural habitat, and make an effort to entertain their audience. "Did you take that one? Did we do ok? Yeah? Cool."And life goes on...
