Week #05 : a week-end in Amsterdam

52 rolls

At the end of January the Spotmatix family was temporarily reunited.  I haven’t written much about my family, but I actually do have one (despite all the time I spend at work and at my photo hobby).  However my 3 daughters are not often at home anymore.  One of them was living in the USA for the last 6 months (doing a student exchange program) and she was due to fly again to Costa Rica a couple of weeks after these shots (thus she’s there in the meantime now).

Long story short, we took the opportunity of that week-end for a short family trip together.   Amsterdam is actually at a driving distance for us.  We woke up early on Saturday, had a safe journey and left the car at the hotel (driving to the city center is not a good idea).  And then we stumbled across this other car… WTF?

Week #04 – Citytrip to Trier, Germany

52 rolls

The weather wasn’t really that warm at all… in the morning we were enjoying some warm tea (for her) and coffee (for me).
