Not even 30 secs walk up the street from our holiday apartment in Amsterdam, on “our” street corner is a
coffee house sent from heaven! ‘De Koffie Salon’ became our ‘local’ during our stay – best ever coffee! :-)~

    ripper pic Ell – that 50D cam of yours can soak up the available light very nicely.

  • Geof, thanks so much! :-))
    All it takes is the right settings and right lens – the 50mm! :-)))
    Ooh! And an available opportunity helps somewhat too ;-)

    Taken on our last afternoon in Amsterdam, I’d been dying to capture some of those pics on the wall in a meaningful way the previous three days – then spotted the gent! :-D

    What a great capture and looks a wonderful place to have coffee in. You cannot beat Amsterdam for their style and coffee. Did you try the pancakes?

  • Helloooooo Karen!!! :-D
    The coffee at the Salon was SO great, didn’t bother going to/trying anywhere else!! :-)~
    DID try some local cuisine, didn’t get to try any pancakes during our stay, though :-/
