Unfortunately it looks like there won’t be a real Winter this year. For a few days in January it felt like Winter had arrived after all. Children were wearing hats and those gloves attached to their sleeves. Everyone was dressed warm as it was almost freezing. On one of those days I took a stroll through my lovely city, Amersfoort. I live in a village nearby, but it feels like my city, because I’ve been coming here ever since I was 8 years old. That’s why I’m so glad that our conceptstore (Capanni lifestyle) is located here, in the Grote Sint Jansstraat, number 8, in a building I’m absolutely in love with. Those windows really are to die for. On this stroll I’d brought my camera with me, my Mamiya, and took these shots of wintry Amersfoort, a rare sight these days. Due to living abroad so much, you do start to see your own city through ‘foreign’ eyes a little and notice its charm even more.
