Snapshots from Amsterdam

A weekend in Amsterdam on black and white film

I have fallen in love with Amsterdam. I don’t know how it is that this stunning city has been off my radar for this long. It’s a photographer’s dream with the never-ending canals wrapping around brick lane roads and arched bridges. Everything here is wonderful: The Dutch architecture! The flowers! The stroopwafel cookie! The Van Gogh MuseumVondelpark! Bike rides! Boat rides! Shopping! and of course, amazing food. It’s a perfect place to escape to for a weekend away, charming and walkable and full of anything your heart may desire. 


10 Favorite finds in Amsterdam

Van Stapele Koekmakerij – Just imagine the best warm chocolate cookie in the world. This is that. 

Screaming Beans  – Amsterdam hands down makes the best cappuccinos and this little espresso spot is heavenly. 

Marc O’ Polo – Cool, comfy, casual clothing 

The Dylan – Gorgeous hotel, amazing afternoon “high wine” experience. 

Ron GastrobarTOPS. Some of the best modern food I’ve ever had. Get the “Surprise Egg” for dessert. 

Rijksmuseum

Boat touryou have to experience the city on the water. We did it at night with a bottle of champagne. 

Brasserie Harkema – French restaurant in an old cigar factory 

Lyppens Antique Jewelry Store – I bought an antique gold ring with dancing baby diamonds I call my champagne ring with my friend Laurel who met us in Amsterdam for all the “off the record” memories.

  • Beautiful! We were there this summer and this post hit me right in my soft spot. Sigh…

    • Do you have any special recommendations from your travels to Amsterdam?

      • Yesss! Off the top of my head: macarons at Urban Cacao, Italian food at Donna Sofia, tapas at La Oliva, and the museum of the resistance was quite poignant.

  • Amsterdam has been calling me. It just seems so peaceful and serene…

    • You would be SO beautiful in Amsterdam and your photos- ahhhh I can only imagine.

    I fell in love with it this summer too, but only for 3 days! How long were you there for?

    • only 4 days. Too much to see in do, not enough time. Did you discover any gems or restaurants i should know about?
