Well this is another painting from the Rijksmuseum. All kinds of people to see, all doing the same thing - looking at the paintings - but all dealing with the experience in a very different way. This gentleman took notes after looking at the paintings, what he was writing was - I have not idea. Again an amazing place to visit. I hope you enjoy this one.

I spent some amazing time this spring in Amsterdam this Spring. What an amazing city and people. We visited all the muesums, one of my favourites was the Ryksmuseum. Seeing all these great master works is sometimes overwhelming. The Museum itself is incredible, what a amazing place! This gentleman had all his brochures sticking out of his back pocket and his gaze and concentration was so intense. I hope you enjoy it - thanks!
