Amsterdam horse carriage sepia black and white time travel


Location: Amsterdam. The Netherlands.


One day while walking in the city center I came across some kind of horse carriages parade. The police had closed the traffic on some streets to allow a march of dozens of horse carriages cross the city center.

Some of the carriages were quite old yet very well maintained, and beautifully decorated. The drivers and passengers were also wearing 19th century outfits.

I happened to have my SLR camera with me so I could take some nice shots. The carriage perfectly blends with the old buildings of the background, creating a picture that really looks from the past.

I passed a sepia tone filter and add some grain to give that old photo effect. I think it goes very well with the subject.

By the way, the photograph was taken in July 2013.
