Two week first date and a love affair with Amsterdam
Two Weeks in Amsterdam
March 4, 2019, 9:11 p.m.
I visited Amsterdam for the first time on the end of a 2 week European trip with my photographer friend and his cousin. We were only in the city for a day and a half, but it was enough time for me to gather a sense of it's charms. The entire city looked like a movie set. We drank beer, visited museums, walked many miles and visited the hippest cafe I have ever seen.
After a few fantastic craft beers from Oedipus Brewing and Brewerij, I briefly hopped on Bumble to for a curious look at the Amsterdam dating seen. I went on a date with a girl when I was in Sweden, and it was a wonderful experience and a great way to get to know some local spots and meet new, interesting people.
I quickly struck up a conversation with a girl. I'm drawn to witty, yet silly conversation, and I quickly turned to my friends and echoed something poetic of the likes of "damn, this girl's cool"...something about a polaroid photo and her saying I reminded her of Demi Moore?
We talked on and off throughout the night, but never got a chance to meet. In a rather silly move, we had our first "date" over phone while I was in the Airport to leave the country. We continued to stay in touch, conversations got longer, and I bought a plane ticket to see her. This is a glimpse into my adventurous and sometimes silly personal life. Life is boring without spontaneity. This is a photographic depiction of a 2 week first date, and documentation of the city that I quickly grew to adore. It's rather long, but as a wedding photographer, I find that it takes a lot of images to tell a complete story. Each image means something to me, a reflection of a memory and, honestly, I wish I shot more.
