i was hoping to get out to try my new lense today, with further hope to share with you some nice spring pics of amsterdam. but the dull dreary weather has been totally uninspiring. today there was not even a glimpse that perhaps a sun does exist as a light source. so i've been continuing with chores and errands, ticking things off the list, and looking out the window hoping to have an excuse to dash out and take some photos. but alas, it did not happen. instead, this is all i was able to capture - the top of the rijks museum from my kitchen window. have a look at that sky!
but if you can, imagine this tower chiming away at sunset, to a tune similar to this. enjoy. and let's all wish for some sun this weekend!!
UPDATE: having listened to the above bells this morning i have realised the rijks museum bells sound NOTHING like it! the bells of the rijks museum actually sound more like this, even though these are from the zuiderkerk. and if you are wondering, the sky is still the same grey as in the photograph. oh woe.
