King’s day / Koningsdag in The HagueKing’s day / Koningsdag in The Hague

Yesterday was King’s Day across the Netherlands and I took the opportunity to document some of the merriment. The theme is basically ‘have a good time and sell as many toys and useless items as you can’.

Strangely, it was a sunny day. So I thought why not take my old Fuju S9600 bridge camera for a spin. It’s no good in low light, but in bright conditions, its small sensor was good enough and the 28-300mm zoom range was a more flexible and lighter option than my chunky Canon DSLR.

I was really happy with how the day turned out, everyone was relaxed and cheerful, it was warm and there were thousands of colourful characters on the streets. I think my photos reflect the mood of the day pretty accurately.

Take a look and let me know what you think. I hope the sun shines again next year so I can give my old Fuji another run!
