Photographer's Note

This is one of the first shots I made with my camera. I took the picture in front of the Station Centraal in Amsterdam. The bicycles are a typical image here. I thought it would look better in B&W.

"Central Station is the hub of Amsterdam - a meeting point for some and a departure point for many. Trams, trains, buses and subways make for a true hive of activity." (

"When you arrive in Amsterdam by train, first thing you'll see is Centraal Station. Centraal Station's inauguration in 1889 was controversial since it separated Amsterdam from the sea and represented Amsterdam's will towards industrialization. This neo-renaissance building alludes to Amsterdam's past in sea and commerce. This is a bustling square always full of people, both locals and visitors arriving by train. Besides train, there is also tram and bus in this square, and loads of bicycles and boats. "
