It is one of those places that, I promise, you don’t really know what you’re getting yourself into when you head into the red light district. I can understand why this “taboo” tourist attraction garners the attention it gets and attracts thousands of people to wander the streets.
I saw Johns staring into the windows daring to consider. And yes, I couldn’t help but gawk at the few guys who came out with a huge sh*t eating grin on the face.
I curiously looked into the windows. With a giggle and a wink, the girls send me running to distance myself from the red windows, my cheeks burning. They are good. They are really good.
With the inspiration of Bethany of Beers and Beans and her experience with the Red Light District, I took to the streets with my camera – something that is not ignored. Keep in mind that I’ve heard of cameras being thrown into the canals. So in super spy mode, I made my move. Meandering the streets I captured some of my favorite images from the trip.
…and it still keeps its mysterious quality.
Welcome to the Red Light District in Amsterdam.
