Beautiful canal section which is a great photo opportunity. Not busy at all which adds to its charm. Luckily for us the sun was sending a dappling effect through the trees so the pics were stunning.

This is near the centre of the city, running west from the Anne Frank House. Its a quieter canal, lined with boats and shadowed by the towering traditional dutch houses.

I like the smaller "side" canals to the Prinsengracht because these are quiet and great to take pictures too! I often bike on this canal to the city centre to avoid the main streets and get the real Amsterdam Jordaan feel.

Just off the great small streets in the Jordaan is this canal "Flower Canal" or Bloemgracht. On this canal I often do a coffee with friends or just bike and try to enjoy the architecture while biking around.

I fell in love with Bloemgracht. Every single house is charming, and it's such a quiet and peaceful area. It's a great place for a stroll.

Opposite from Ann Frank House this little street with canal is off the beaten track but worth a stroll along. For us in October the autumn colours were particularly photogenic.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
