Magna Plaza

When the weather is hot, and the sky is blue, you’ll often find me indoors hiding from the sun.

It’s pretty much the only reason I visit a church. Sure, they often have nice architecture, but the fact it’s usually lovely and cool and you get a place to sit in a dark corner is certainly the main reason.

I had such sun in my trip to Amsterdam this weekend, and made good use of the churches there. Sure, one of them was in full mass with a choir singing something in Latin, but they didn’t bother me and I didn’t bother them.

I also popped in to the Magna Plaza for a spot of lunch and a look at some of their lovely architecture, which is what you see here. This is looking straight up from the main entrance, and for a handheld shot while looking directly at the sky I was surprised by how straight I managed to get it, I normally have to do a load of correction in Photoshop when attempting such things.

Lunch was nice, I had a panini and a few Trappist beers; thanks for asking.
