merry go round : photo

amsterdam : bike on pastoorsbrug, brouwersgracht & keizersgracht
it’s the last friday of the month, which means today’s post is a part of merry go round, a group of 11 artists/craftwomen from around the world that gather to share their thoughts on the same topic. this month’s topic: find a photo that affects you in some way.

the photo i’ve chosen is a polaroid that i shot in april when i was in amsterdam. out of all of the photos i took, this one of a bike locked to a canal bridge… this one captures what amsterdam is to me.

see what everyone else has to share:
