Secrets of Amsterdam

Every time I visit Amsterdam, the city of bikes, I wander through the streets. Colorful skinny buildings, tulips, the city center built on canals, houses lined up right to their edge. I like the part around the main station, that´s where I met a guy selling ice cream born in the Czech Republic who had been living in Amsterdam for 30 years. He shared his story with me and it was like rambling through the avenues of time for a moment.

Frozen in the moment


The secret histories of the narrow side streets


My starting and final point. The railway station.

About terissmile

Teresa is the name. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since I always leave a piece of my heart in every place I had chance to live for a while, I feel more like a child of the world. It all started with moments which had a huge impact on my emotional level and on myself as well. Moments seemingly ordinary and insignificant from the common point of view, more specifically emotions written in human faces. I started chasing those candid ephemeral moments that are there only for a second and then they are gone and lost forever - be it loneliness, fear, anxiety, astonishment, joy, love, disappointment, loss... But it´s all real. Real emotions of real people. I do not follow any rules in particular, the only thing I insist on is honesty and genuineness that help me to add life to possibly every shot I take. Since minimalism is my way, I try to keep them as minimalist as possible. That is how I create my world. Take a look if you like.
