On the Street…. Prinsengracht, Amsterdam

It was a little crowded shooting in Amsterdam yesterday.

Apparently, the local football club won a big championship game and everyone was out to celebrate.

    I loooooooooooove the comments. The local football team is known as Ajax Amsterdam, they are extremely famous (they invented "total football") & they won the League (national competition) last year.

    They have a pretty stylish jersey too (though not as exciting as Paris Saint-Germain's – designed by Daniel Hechter himself).

    hahaha Yeah, Ajax won the Dutch national championships and puts them into the European champion of champions tournament. (I hope this helps – I was trying to explain without assuming any prior knowledge of the Eredivisie and Champions League).

    Was the woman in the middle at the game? She seems a little non-plussed by the giddy fans around her. If you want to see stylish football fans (ie not wearing the usual uniform of football shirt, etc.), take a trip to a few Italian football grounds during the Serie A season.

    Ajax won the Eredivisie Championship after 7 years (circa 2004) they now play in the Champions League as Dutch league winners which is the equivalent of being in the NBA playoffs. It's a money spinning football/soccer competition comparable to the Superbowl in it's viewership worldwide. Culturally it's amazing to see the waterways chocked full of supporters… In 2000 I saw Amsterdam policeman aiding a female Oranje (Dutch National Soccer Team) supporter roll a spliff/blunt/weed in the city streets with her on his back after they reached the European Semi Finals which is the European version of the World Cup. You asked for culture, so enjoy…

    Soccer and fashion usually don't mix in my mind, but next time you are in Italy you should go to a game where you will see some of the best dressed men around. I went to an Inter Milan game a few years ago and was astounded at the way the supporters dressed, a far cry from the English game where it's nylon shirts all round-yuck!

    The local football club is called Ajax and is one of the greatest football clubs in the world.

    I doubt this photo was taken on the Prinsengracht as that is a canal; the word 'gracht' in Dutch means 'canal'.

    Other than that, intriguing picture with this mysterious, pale girl in the middle.

    Favorite Sart shot of all time. I like to imagine that she didn't know all these fans were going to fly into frame from out of nowhere. (Probably not the case.)

    The contrast of fashion-y stoicism and earnestness is hard to beat. Although it looks to me like she's trying real hard to keep a straight face.
