Quick Shot: Oh The Legs!

Amsterdam is famous for many things..... drugs, booze, tolerance and sex.  Although I previously covered the sex part of Amsterdam in my post about the Red Light District, I think it's worth (partially) revisiting for this photograph. I'm all about humor and irony in a photograph, and this was one of those times that I couldn't stop chuckling as I framed the shot. Why? Well it's a bunch of legs, and for a city known for promiscuity, I thought this was a very fitting image of Amsterdam. If I didn't tell you anything more, you could mistakenly think these legs belonged to some of Amsterdam's sex workers, complete with pricing.

In actuality, its a store selling women's stockings. And taken anywhere else, this photograph doesn't have the same story!
