I don’t often have cause to travel across Het IJ to North Amsterdam. For the people who use the (free!) ferry boats as part of their daily commute between home in North Amsterdam and work in South Amsterdam (or vice versa) it is perhaps a very prosaic experience. But when I step onto the deck I always feel like I’m embarking on some great adventure… a nineteen minute adventure, which is roughly how long the journey takes.

There is a winged escort…

one bird, two sunlit vapour trails

And on the other side lots of lovely shapes, colours and textures…
