This is the first Amsterdam vlog as I hang out at the hostel and head out for some photography.

I left Leiden, Netherlands and made the move towards Amsterdam this morning. I've been looking to getting into the city and shooting some photography for a while now. It's been a long time since I spent time in Amsterdam, and since it poured rain the whole time I was here the first time, I didn't really shoot any pictures or explore that much.
So, I was pretty keen to get out and explore.
But, first, I needed to check into my hostel. I'm staying at St. Christopher's Inn in Amsterdam. St. Christopher's Inn is one of my favourite hostel chains. They have a great vibe that's open, leads people towards social life, and also gives them privacy where they want it.
When I'm not living the hostel life, I really kind of miss it. There's something special about life in the hostels. It's more than a place to stay - hostel's are community.
In the evening, I headed out for a bit of photography in Amsterdam. I started with a location scout, and found two locations I really wanted to shoot. But, in classic Brendan style, I got to my first spot way too early and found myself a little bit bored waiting for the light. Still it was actually really fun sitting and shooting some Amsterdam vlog footage on the canals. I also decided I want to live on a houseboat. That's my new goal.
Finally, the light started popping and it was pretty fantastic for photography. The light was a little flat, and I kind of got caught up with one composition, but I did get some photos of Amsterdam I really liked.
Eventually, I headed over to the I am Amsterdam "I Amsterdam" sign that everyone takes cheesy photos on, and got some images I'm happy with.
Afterwards, I wandered back to the hostel to call it a night.
I have to say, I do love Amsterdam. It's kind of the perfect mix of weird and chill. And, it's definitely photogenic.
