I was at De Bijenkorf in the center of Amsterdam looking out of the window down on the Dam Square when I saw this little scene.
It had been snowing a few days earlier and it was just below zero degrees. The snow that had fallen didn’t melt immediately like we’re used to in Holland. Instead it had become dirty by all the footsteps left behind. Except in this spot where somebody had left a bike. It must have lain there for a number of days already.
