The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Amy.

Per Amy: “This week, we invite you to share “Old and New” with your photos and stories.”

Just one more thing, as Steve Jobs used to say. I couldn’t resist the following comparison of old and new. They are not great photos, but you’ll get the idea.

As I was traversing Amsterdam Harbor in October 2011 I saw the VOC Ship Amsterdam, a replica of an 18th Dutch trading vessel, which currently resides at the Netherlands Maritime Museum:

My view of the ship was interrupted by this:

That is something you don’t see everyday!

The bus continued towards a ramp, where it arose from the depths like a dripping sea monster:

Ho hum, just another day in Amsterdam.

Stay safe, be well. Be kind to one another.

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

    That’s fun. I have to admit I didn’t realize I was looking at a bus in the second picture.

  6. That’s a fun surprise moment captured. In Wisconsin Dells (before when people could go to places with other people … aka, in the past) they have Duck Boat Rides. They are the same, they start on land, hit the water, and return to land on the other side of the lake. It’s a fun ride, our kids enjoyed it back in the days when they were young.

    Wow! So curiously interesting to see your captures of the “dripping sea monster”. Funny way to describe it, but very apt. Definitely a stark contrast from the elegance of the old ship replica to the garishness of modern technology. 🙂
