On a spring day in Amsterdam, I spotted this classic Dutch scene. A bicycle, a loyal companion to many Amsterdammers, was parked on a bridge, overlooking a peaceful canal. The picturesque view included charming canal houses and boats gently resting along the water's edge. It was a simple yet beautiful snapshot of everyday life in this lovely city, where bikes and canals are an integral part of the local culture. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
