A cinematographic view from the Papiermolensluis (Paper Mill Lock), by Jöran Maaswinkel, using a Galaxy NX camera. Maaswinkel is a born and raised Amsterdammer, earning his money as a freelance cameraman, photographer and video editor. You can see more of Maaswinkel’s Amsterdam pictures on DailyM, an online Multi Media Magazine by father and son Ferrie and Jöran.
Make sure to go to this very spot and see its view of the Prinsengracht and cafe Papeneiland for yourself: it’s simply beautiful here! And don’t forget to hop in for a drink at Papeneiland, they claim to be Amsterdam’s oldest cafe, serving drinks as of 1642. They host a nice mixture of locals and visitors. You might even bump into Clinton.
The Papiermolensluis is about a ten minute walk from Central Station. Here’s the map:
