Skywatch

A skywatch of Amsterdam seen from the highest floor of a departmentstore. With SC I leaned forward in an open window to make a photo. A bit scary for me so high up there. At "sccollections" you can see the view to the left from above.
The red and white building is Hotel de Doelen. At the bridge in front I have seen the Beatles leaving the hotel for a boattour through the canals in 1964. Have stood there for hours with a friend waiting to see them, but had no camera at that time yet.

But here a photo from internet, I must be there in the crowd somewhere.
Linking to "Skywatch Friday"

  5. Lovely view from above. Very lucky of you to have seen the Beatles, pity you didn't have a camera. Going over to your husband's blog for the opposite view.

  6. So brave to hang out that high window Marianne, super shot though! The hotel is beautiful, love the second b&w with the crowds waiting to catch a glimpse of 'the fab four' :)

  8. It must have been exciting to be part of that crowd in 1964. That's a very interesting view of Amsterdam, not one you would normally see. Well worth hanging out of a window to capture.

  10. Pretty picture and what a great memory! I remember when the Beatles came to my hometown back then. Unfortunately, my parents said I could not go!
