Night View, Amsterdam

Arriving in Amsterdam at dusk, we took a walk along the canal near our hotel. Leaning my camera on top of a small bridge, I shot this picture---and lifted my camera up too soon. That mistake gave me one of my favorite images from our time in Amsterdam. Here it is, a magical scene with accidental shooting stars falling into the Reguliersgracht canal. This is the image that was chosen for "Eye of the Quilter II" the beautifully mounted photo exhibit that was on display at the International Quilt Festival in Houston earlier this month. Now I am sharing it with you.
