Under water

I wish I had taken a better photo, and I really missed a good opportunity here. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to catch this sea lion’s head, just its arse :( They’re too quick! I tried different angles after taking this shot, but then the boy went away. Blargh.
What I do like about this photo, though, is light (even though the sea lion’s arse is slightly overexposed), that’s why I decided to publish it anyway.

Amsterdam ZOO, a peacock walking from one table to another, begging people for food. Additionally, in Polish it’s a kind of a word game – “paw, który sępi” – non-translatable, I’m afraid (but a main reason I’m actually posting this, I have better photos from this trip).

Vischhandel

“Vischhandel” means “fish trade” in Dutch, so I have a theory that this is just a pub in a place that used to be a fish shop (in the late 19th or early 20th century, judging by the sign’s typeface).

This was taken in Haarlem, Holland. The guy on the photo was opening the pub. He thought he was ruining my photo, but I really wanted him on it. He laughed.

Steam train

Guess if I could resist, when I heard a steam train right outside my window (I live next to the train station). My injured foot didn’t seem to mind a small walk anyway. The locomotive was beautiful, but there were so many people, and the light was so bright, that I didn’t manage to take a lot of good photos that didn’t contain random people doing random stuff. The light contrast was somewhat unpredictable, and I have photos where the dark side is too dark and the other one is too overexposed to be of any use >.<
Still, I'm happy with the few I've got.

Playing with focus in my new lens :)

Update:

You sit in front of your computer doing stuff for the whole day and nothing happens, and then you leave the house for several hours and suddenly you get tons of likes and comments :D

This is my second appearance in Freshly Pressed. Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. You have no idea how much it motivates me to go on.
