Inspiring Photography Locations

Location is key to photography, however it’s also important to be in the right at the right time. Find out the details I’ve collected surrounding some inspiring, well-known and less well-known photography locations.

Lost in Amsterdam

The 'Lost in Amsterdam' title image is somewhat fitting, as I often got a bit turned around in a light, slightly-panicked jog, trying to catch what colour the faint sunlight could provide. I needn't have worried, it's not as if Amsterdam shuts up shop and goes dark in the evening. Especially after taking a look at Berlin and its city lights at night I was keen to take advantage of the evenings. In all fairness, Amsterdam has more and somewhat cooler neon signs - but it helps if you have fiercely competing coffeeshops.

It was overcast for 5 days straight, so when finally at sunset some variation actually appeared in the sky I got to higher ground as quick as I could, this view from the Blue Amsterdam Cafe provided some solstice in an otherwise bleak week in the Dutch capital.

I try to provide locations so people can check things out for themselves and take their own pictures - and as a matter of principle because I hate it when other people don't divulge that information. However you'll notice some captions are missing, but as I said I often only had a vague idea of where I was, sincerest apologies.
