Amsterdam Canals: Herengracht & Brouwersgracht

This is one of the many canal intersections in Amsterdam, Netherlands just after sunset. This was my favorite section of Amsterdam canals because they were narrow, lined with interesting buildings and house boats, and had cool bridges across them as you see here. The streaks of light in the water are from a boat that passed by while I was taking photos. This is the intersection of Brouwersgracht and Herengracht canals (don't ask me how to pronounce them), just west of Amsterdam Centraal train station in the Jordaan section of Amsterdam. The Herengracht canal is one of the 4 main concentric half-circle canals that circle the center of the city. Brouwersgracht means "brewers' canal," so named because this canal used to have many breweries along it, most of which have now been converted into trendy warehouse apartments.
