Doing my favourite thing in the world: rummaging through old rags in search of treasure.
And a touristy one...
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!
