This is a short series of photos from "the other side of the tracks" behind Centraal Station in Amsterdam.

Does anyone play with these toys?
I wonder if
Sinterklaas could use them right about now?

Santa will give them the new toys!
intersting shot Granny wink
Ginnie Hart: Some of these toys actually look pretty new, Dudee! Well, at least compared to yesterday's dolls. smile Thanks for stopping by again.
I love the profusion of color in this shot. Colorful chaos!
Ginnie Hart: How so much junk could be so colorful is beyond me, Red Pen. Thanks. smile

Could be a mobile "Santa's Remnants" outlet, Ginnie.
And...is that a basket of chives doing their thang in the foreground?
Lots to see in this interesting image.
Ginnie Hart: It really is a conglomeration of stuff, Ray, for sure! Thanks.

This is just madness a childs heaven. What more can I sy Ginnie. smile
Ginnie Hart: You may be right, Tracy. I just hope there are no nails protruding from any of those boards! Thanks. smile

Ditto Red Pen's comment. Lots of colors, and very chaotic. Santa would definitely want to use them about now. smile
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if Santa would look confused if he found this heap! Thanks, Kay.

Sinterklaas blew a tire and went into a skid, ultimately crashing on this boat. Obviously the Dutch emergency crew didn't clean up all of the wreck.

You wind some very strange things on your travels. I certainly haven't seen this side of Amsterdam.
Ginnie Hart: I really had to walk out of my way to find this place, Martin, so I'm quite sure it's not seen by many. But by tomorrow, things will be looking up, I can assure you. smile Thanks.

This is a great capture, so sharp, nice details and I think Sinterklaas brought new toys with him in his big steamer to Holland, he is right now sorting them out, for next wednesday, the 5th of December when he has to deliver them, does he know you are in Holland again, I'll bet he already knows winkwinkwink
Ginnie Hart: He better know, Astrid! grin Now if he could just give me a little bit of sleep, I sure would be happy (sigh). smile I sure am gonna have fun to see what happens around here next week. You can be sure I'll really be paying attention. tongue
j'adore! quel bordel sur ce bateau!
Ginnie Hart: It's really something else, isn't it, O-P! Thanks.
What a mess ! A new transportation for Father Christmas ? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe, Flo. And wouldn't WE be surprised! smile Thanks.

Chaos pur, a nice mix of different colours, a beautiful car-toy which could be still used by children. The owner of this ship isn't a poor man when I consider the plenty of his things. I suppose that Sint and Piet will bring new toys and, maybe, the chaos will be quite greater!
Ginnie Hart: The more chaos the merrier, right, Philine?! smile HA! I love it. Thanks.

It is actually a lovely shot Ginnie. Colours, sharpness etc and I think I'll go with Martins senario.
Ginnie Hart: The scenarios we could come up with at this time of the year! How fun, Aussie. Thanks.
Lots of toys are just bought and never played with.
Nice clear shot.
Ginnie Hart: Very sad but true, Wim. The best toys are the ones that are free! Thanks.

What a mess on this boat !!! Colours are very nice as the lightning is ... Have a nice day !!! Ann
Ginnie Hart: A mess is right, Ann. It makes you wonder if someone actually still lives there or if this is their boat-shed! Thanks for stopping by again.
Well seen Ginnie - I love it very much !
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Zeb. Thanks.

Ginnie these are amazing.. such charecter and each tells a story. Great shot.. such clarity.
Ginnie Hart: Don't you just wish we knew the stories, Gale! Thanks.

Nice colour . . This looks like organised chaos ..
Ginnie Hart: Organized chaos is right, Shakara! smile Thanks.
This is an odd one, Ginnie. The toys look perfectly serviceable, yet the boat looks to be full of rubbish. Wonderful composition, with so much to look at, and brilliant colour. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: How could something so chaotic look so colorful, right, Roz! smile Thanks.
Nice sharp colours here Ginnie.
I could do with some tyres for my car.
Ginnie Hart: I was wondering when someone was gonna mention the tyres/tires, Sesan. In that one word we see the difference between the UK and USA English. smile Thanks.
At first glance, I read the boat's name as Shangri la and laughed and laughed and laughed.
Ginnie Hart: Now you've got ME laughing, Mary. HA! I like your funny bone. smile
For me the most striking thing about this shot is the difference between the colours of the toys and that of the boat. Scary just how indestructable plastic is.
Ginnie Hart: You've definitely got a point, Mike! Thanks.

You have to wait another week for Sinterklaas. With yesterday's dolls and all the toys I think there must be a toy repairshop around. Maybe Santaclaus recycles what is left over from Sinterklaas?

I like this series. It is not always moonshine and roses.
Ginnie Hart: You're so right about moonshine and roses, Louis! Thanks.
beatiful Ginnie, beautiful, such a splash of colors in a wonderful composition
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Patrick. Thank you.
What a mess. But a very colourfull one. Nice capture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing colorful messes are less depressing than non-colorful ones! smile Thanks, Richard.

I have to laugh when I look at this photo, Ginnie. I think this comparable to living in rural Georgia where you often see folks putting their old cars up on blocks in the yard and using them for storage units!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! You know Georgia all too well, I'm afraid. Certain parts of it, that is. smile Thanks for the good laugh. Kathryn.
I've just been given a load more toys to sell at our next book sale on Saturday. One of them was a bit like yesterdays' dolls. I've locked it in the garage! I love pictures like this Ginnie. Wonderful chaos!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Bill. I think it gave you the creeps all over again! smile Thanks.
Very colorful. Very nice. Love the framing of the shot. Keep up the good work.
Ginnie Hart: You're such a sweetheart, ChiChi. Thank you.

actually not sure if it's trash

but trash has never looked so beutiful
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure either, DrAW. After yesterday's photo, this looks rather nice! smile Thanks. (I deleted your other comment since it was basically the same.)

I used to have a truck like that, I loved it to. But mine was made of wood and painted! lol

what a lot of clutter, lovely shot. mal
Ginnie Hart: I bet you don't have memories like this with YOUR truck, though, Mal! smile Thanks.
Reminds me I have a job to do clearing out the attic Ginnie. Some of this stuff looks too good to be dumped like this. Good capture - that truck just grabs your attention. David.
Ginnie Hart: That truck really gets the focus, doesn't it, David! You're right. Thanks.
A very interesting collection of stuff. Nice one. All the best, Dave.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Dave.

Now, this could be here at Bembridge Harbour Ginnie! I like the chaos here smile
Ginnie Hart: At least it's colorful, Chris. smile Thanks.
This it is the boat of the toys... that make those toys there? Ahhh is the boat of Santa! wink
Ginnie Hart: I think it must be, José Angel! smile What a ride. Thanks.

me, i like the depressed areas...i often find more of interest that in the shiny clean areas!
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, David. Maybe that's where the real living is?! Thanks.
Great chaos, sometimes it's great to see pics filled with stuff...if you know what I mean....
Ginnie Hart: Yup, I know what you mean, Aksel. smile Thanks.

I just love this kind of shots : you don't know where to begin to look...everything catches our attention almost at the same time and we have difficuties in stop looking because, deep in our hearts, we know that we haven't seen everything grin Really great shot , Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: You are such a sweetheart, Lina. I think this would make a good jigsaw puzzle, based on what you have written. That's when I see things I hadn't seen before. smile Thanks.
