Untourists & Untourists-to-be: The Holland Photographs

This Monday, the Untour bloggers (here in our suburban Philadelphia offices)   have a certain lady in mind…..Sandy.  As in Hurricane Sandy.  We hope everyone is battened down properly, if you are in the large lady’s path.  If by some chance, you find our Untours Blog has fewer posts, you’ll pardon us.  We’re likely indisposed, or out of power, thanks to Sandy. 

To distract you from either the storm, or, if you are not in her path, all the weather hype you’ll be bombarded with about Sandy, we’ve put together some of the photos of Holland that we received in this year’s Photo Contest. 

We can’t think of a more appropriate place to direct your attention when trying to get one’s mind off the weather.  As these photo’s attest, Holland has a lot of different skies….and weather.  But the town of Leiden seems to be beautiful in all lights. 

The Untourists who’s work we’re highlighting in the slideshow below are

Phil Derkum, Holland Untour, 2010, Paris Untour 2004  (the mother & kids on bikes)

Deborah Greiner, Holland Untour, 2010 (the lacemaker in Brugges and the bittenballen snack in Delft

Daniel Yett, Holland Untour 2011 (Different shots of Leiden and it’s canals)
