I tend not to return to places that I’ve visited because there are far too many other places that I’ve yet to visit. One exception to this rule is Amsterdam, a city that I fell in love with when I first went in December 2016.

For Christmas week in 2017 I returned to a very misty and soggy Amsterdam. The dreariness of the weather did not deter me from getting out and about on the streets and canals in what were challenging but fun shooting conditions.

Now nearly a year later, I’ve just finished booking flights and accommodation to spend to return for Christmas once more and I cannot wait return.

FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, I WANTED TO SEE THE WORLD.... From early childhood I inherited a love of adventure movies, books and comics. I loved the action and excitement but I was equally fascinated by the places these took place. At first I was astonished to learn that many of of these fantastic places weren't just movie sets or products of the writers imagination, but real world places that could be visited, seen and touched. Growing up on a beautiful, but very small, island this was a revelation and from that point on I spent equally as much time borrowing books from the library to learn about these places. As I grew a little older and Micheal Palin started his seminal TV show - 'Around the World in 80 Days' - I was hooked, and knew that some day I wanted to have an adventure like his. I've been very fortunate that life has given me the chance to go out and see the world. I've been equally fortunate in discovering another passion in photography. My website - www.neilblakely.com is where I share these passions with all those people who also want to go out and see what lies over the horizon.
