Orange Bridge

Today's theme in Sunday Stamps-II is Orange and/or Yellow. This is my second entry today. Because I had already scheduled the oranges when I received this beauty: 


It figures out the Magere Brug ('Skinny Bridge') over the river Amstel in the city centre of Amsterdam. This stamp was issued on 26 March 2012, and was presented by the Netherlands for the theme Visit... of Europa Stamps.


It arrived on the back of this matching postcard, sent by Heleen (the Netherlands). She had sent me two more postcards of this special bridge. I think I had never uploaded them.

  1. Made me think that the canals in Amsterdam under a golden sunset must be quite a sight.

  2. Fantastic stamp choice, and quite different from your more organic orange entry.

    1. Actually, I forgot that I had already written the organic post... Anyway, this stamp deserved a post!

  3. I have spent many happy hours in Amsterdam and am familiar with that bridge - but lately I only pass through the airport.

  4. How cool to have a matching postcard and stamp! I really find it extra thoughtful of the sender. Thanks for sharing these Eva.

    1. Heleen always sent me very special mail :D
      I love bridges. I don't know if it was in the list, but that could be a good theme for "Postcards for the weekend", couldn't it?
