So, in the first week of March (2005), Amsterdam received heavy snow for every day over a week. According to many, it happens once every few years. It was, therefore, a privilege of sorts to see the city covered in so much white snow. The energy of the city changed, as did the entire complexion. Public transit was shut down for part of a day, and car traffic was reduced dramatically, as some cars could not even get out of their parking spots.
So, I trekked out with two good friends, walked about Amsterdam on a cold March night, and caught some memorable images on disk. It was a wonderful time.
