Sealing the Deal

Amsterdam

I took this shot on our second-to-last-night in Amsterdam. Evan and I had just left our favorite coffee shop, after having been engrossed in an epic checkers battle, and we could still taste the fresh mint from our tea circling our breaths. We began to walk back to our place, blissfully lost in chatter, amazed by the fact that while only our third visit to the city, the walk felt as though we had made it a thousand times. It wasn’t until we went to cross over the canal that it donned us that the sun was beginning to set. The light was reflecting off the water, the water was lapping up against the houseboats, and somewhere in the near distance you could hear the triumphant ringing of bike bells. The moment was so perfect it made us both stop in our tracks. My heart melted the minute I checked the viewfinder. I made this bold declaration the spot: One day we will live in this city.
