Amsterdam Canal in City Center - 2014 - Marty Murphy
I spent a few days wandering around the city with my camera and tripod. On this particular evening I spent many of the daylight hours in the Van Gogh Museum. So much early work there - he started out painting country peasant life with a documentarian's flair for dramatic lighting and compelling stories. Then he got me looking at comparably mundane subjects - self portraits, bedrooms, - with a different eye. He documented his life and surroundings with equal vigor as if to show the world: "Look - this is what I am and where I did my work.; it will absolutely matter in the future!" But I digress. Amsterdam is a pretty nice place to wander about day or night.
