A sample of the upcoming Queen’s Day celebrations


Utrecht based computer science professor Wolfgang Hürst shot this video last year of the party boats in Amsterdam during Queen’s Day. It’s definitely my favourite video of that day. I think the images combine very well with the music (“Ashes of Time” by Fool’s Chaos).

I will be enjoying Queen’s Day (April 30) myself as always by dipping into the nation-wide garage sale, and hope to score some glass for my camera. Specifically, any wide-angle lenses for under ten euro will get my attention.

    You’re right. It’s a great video!
    I hope you scored your lens.

    I am afraid I did not, not much lenses out there. Still, it was a great day, pretty much the only spring day we’ve had all year.
