  • Today, I went shopping and taking photos in Amersfoort.
    When I spotted my favorite piece of graffiti, I took out my camera and went to stand across the street to see who'd pass by. Graffiti would make an excellent background.
    I saw a biker approaching. When I noticed he stopped in front of me, I made a quick snap shot of the wall and put my camera down, so that he could pass. "This wall? You should photograph me instead!" he smiled at me. "I was planning to, but then you stopped..." He laughed at that. "So, what are you doing this for? School?" he asked. "No, this is just for fun," I answered, not knowing whether to be flattered or insulted with his assumption I'm still in school. "I just took the graffiti as background and wait for innocent people to pass by so I can take a picture." I continued. That amused him. "I thought you were kidding you were planning to put me on photo", he said.
