Jen said...

It's even neater that you have a photo of what Van Gogh wrote! (got a little hasty with the publish key - oops!)

Its beautiful, and especially neat is the "Van Gogh's 1988" and "Moi's 2006" bit!

I see u seem to be drawing inspiration from the maestro's, I love van gogh, any man who can cut of his ear for a woman he loves is definitely worth knowing

For a moment I thought the photo and painting are of the same bridge, trickery :)

Except for the arches under the bridge, wouldn't have been able to tell the difference. I had to read the foot note to realize they weren't the same :-)

arka said...

and the irony is one was painted in 1888 while the latter is shot in 2006.....

Moi said...

sard: yeah they are very very similar..wonder if there are more bridges like these around ...or is it just some kinda co-incidence!!! or maybe the bridge in amsterdam was built after VanGogh's painting!!!! .....time to google!!! :DDDD

LOL Good one, moi! And I like the "darkness" - gives it a relaxed, evening stroll feel.

Very clever! Were you aware of Van Gogh's painting when you shot your picture?
