Doing my favourite thing in the world: rummaging through old rags in search of treasure.

Ah Amsterdam. If you can get past the British fixation with the coffee shops and peep shows you will find this city has everything you could possibly want: cats, bicycles, flea markets, gorgeous apartments to peek into it, pancakes, hot chocolate, canals, design, aspirational shopping and, surprisingly, an thriving 'foodie' culture. A big thank you to Amelia Peters for cooking us delicious food in her apartment and for being an excellent tour guide.

I could quite happily live in Amsterdam.

All photos by Jian Wei. My Pentax MZ-M went into meltdown and started eating film. Naturally I'm devastated as it's been my go to camera for the last four years and I have never been disappointment with the pictures it takes. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking of getting a Pentax K100o as a replacement as that is what Jian Wei used for these pictures and they're beautiful. It also has fewer electrical parts to go wrong and can be worked manually!
