I am lucky to participate to capture the attitude free Bear-Necessity parties, or simply 'BN' parties. A party were sharing, socializing and dancing are the keywords.
BN was created in 2008 in Amsterdam. Over the time, BN expanded to other cities in Europe as London, Antwerp, Cologne, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Alpe d'Huez as well as in Tel Aviv.
In Amsterdam, the BN parties are hosted in Panama
Today, I captured a special proposal. I was undercover! What a thrilling, delightful and romantic moment!
Alex proposed to his lovely wife-to-be Victoria in the middle of the ice skating ring on Museumplein in Amsterdam.
Of course we prepared this moment well in advance, very carefully, so it went very smoothly, yet when it was time for Alex to go on his knees, it was of course full of magic and unexpected.
I had to shed tears, they are so amazingly in love!
Today, a proud and colorful crowd of World Citizens have marched in the streets of Amsterdam for tolerance and peace.
With pride and emotion, I have captured their hope for equality, dignity and freedom. I have been offered in return a lot of happiness, love and respect.
A very beautiful and complete day.
After the terrorist attacks in Paris yesterday, I have followed people in the streets of Amsterdam during their march for democracy and freedom of speech.
I could see a lot of anger and incomprehension within the crowd of demonstrators after the terrible events, yet I also could feel a strong desire and hope for peace and for freedom.
Nous sommes tous Charlie
