Q is for quest

I don’t do travel photography in the form of landscapes, extreme shots or other “follow me” stuff. But as a amateur photographer I’m always in search for something. And this is my quest: to try and see beauty, irony, paradox, usual and unusual, unique and common in our daily life. I’m on a quest for the shot.

I don’t say that this particular photo is the shot, but at least I like it for its two-level composition. It also looks like a double exposure shot which it’s not.

As my contribution to this week’s Photo Challenge I’ve decided to choose this photo from my first trip to Amsterdam back in 2012.

It was a business trip, so I had to wake up early and go meet some people. Though my hotel was about 30 minute’s walk from the meeting point I decided to walk anyway and shoot some morning Amsterdam streets. The picture framed itself in a moment when I noticed that the father and his son are sitting under the sign “Locals”. And locals they are indeed.
