The Jordaan, in addition to being one of the most layered neighborhoods of Amsterdam, is also one of the most joyous for me to immerse myself within. Bridges and canals snake their way over and through some of the loveliest assemblages of bricks and stones I've ever seen. The tiny canal houses of this area of the city, never cease to delight me with their layers of hidden–and often overlooked–riches. This particular view can be found here–using an ultra zoom-lens. Zoom-lenses enable me to uncover layers, of beautiful Amsterdam.
