    • You can thank the Gemeente of Oud-West, they are the ones who put these flowers in my street! πŸ™‚

      • Lucky you , don’t think I’ll be posting what the Gemeente Utrecht puts in my street ! πŸ˜‰

        • Haha! I’m lucky, my Gemeente puts a lot of effort in keeping the neighborhood pleasant, lots of flowers in the street and on the bridges.

    I love the way the purple is defined: My purple flowers look like purple lumps. If I may ask what camera do you shot with? I am hoping to upgrade next year and my point and shots do not handle purples and reds very well.

    • Thanks! I used a Canon 450D (you can see in the tags which camera I’ve used). It’s 5+ years so there are newer versions of this camera, I think the latest one in the series is 650D. I got mine because I wanted a “beginners DSLR” for a cheap(ish) price, and I’m still happy with it.

        Thank you for responding. Some others have not and I am just trying to get a base line for my upgrade as money allows. Till then I will keep using the point and shots I have been blessed with.
