Photoessay: rain, photographs & brownies.

It was a rainy Wednesday afternoon, and a small group of decided to visit Foam, the photography museum on the Keizersgracht 609 (551 6500), open daily from 10am to 6pm and Thursday and Fridays till 9pm. On display till the 26th of October is the exhibition “Still Life: Contemporary Dutch Photography”…

They have a great bookshop at the entrance, I’ll post more about this in Amsterdam Insights in a few weeks. It might be worth checking out Foam Pop-In (Gabriel Metsustraat 2-6), open Thursdays from 11am to 9pm and Friday to Sunday from 11am to 7pm, for a large collection of books and magazines, as well as temporary exhibitions.

We then went to the lovely Two For Joy Coffee Roasters on the Frederiksplein 29, open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 7pm and Saturday and Sundays from 8.00 am to 6pm. This was my first time at this location, I recently visited the Haarlemmerdijk location and absolutely loved (and took photographs for Amsterdam Insights)…

This location was just as beautiful, and we were served warm coffees and mint tea, dark chocolate brownies and orange and almond cake…

Just what we needed on this cold rainy afternoon.

When the rain finally stopped, I biked home through the Jordaan and couldn’t help but take a few photographs of the canals…

Oh Amsterdam, you’re beautiful even when it rains.
