For most people living in the city of Amsterdam it has not escaped our attention how clear the skies have been on sunny days. Not only did the air quality feel better because of fewer cars, we were no longer seeing the trails from airplanes taking off from Schiphol airport, a phenomenon never witnessed before by the more younger residents.

At first people seemed to be rejoicing this new breath of fresh air and the luck of such good weather during the new social distancing measures. In the meantime people are becoming antsy and questioning how much longer it will take to te get back to normal. Who knows…

In the meantime I’m experimenting with different ways of digitally editing my images to fit some of my own feelings regarding this period of time.

Fake colors, but I like it this way
