WPC: All Time Favorites

I was surprised and saddened by the news that the Daily Post and Weekly Photo Challenges will cease to exist. I’ve been participating in weekly challenges for some six years and always looked forward to it. Such is life. I wish the team continued success in their endeavors and hope our paths cross again. A special thanks to Krista Stevens for “Discovering” me last year. I very much appreciated it! So, for this Final Installment, here are some favorites from these past years.

Amsterdam: A City of Canals

Amsterdam is a city of canals and bridges. After a few days walking around it, I lost count of how many bridges I had crossed and how many canals I had seen and photographed. Since I love trivia, I found out that Amsterdam has 165 canals, with a combined length of 100 KM (60 Miles). The city has 1,753 so-called ‘numbered’ bridges, 80 of which are within the belt of canals (grachtengordel). There are an additional 2,250+ less significant bridges. No, we didn’t even get close to seeing everything! After a while it gets a bit old… This gallery is dedicated to Amsterdam’s canals, bridges, and all the water around it! Plus the beautiful views that come with them, of course.
