Eye Candy

Your Regular Dose of Stalkage

Olivia was supposed to do a feature on street style in the Netherlands for us but then she got sucked into just general people watching. We’re not mad, because look! Aren’t these people INTRIGUING?

    @ picture seven: is it just me, or do they look like waldo?

  • Rachael September 20th, 2011 7:17 PM

    I love the Waldo guys!

  • Whatsername September 20th, 2011 7:20 PM

    So cute… I have to wonder what all their stories are. c:

    Oh and, props for finding waldo.

  • Mollie September 20th, 2011 7:20 PM

    Picture 2! <3

  • unicorn September 20th, 2011 7:24 PM

    i want their hats.

  • happi September 20th, 2011 7:26 PM

    These pictures were beautiful! Especially the last one, I wanna know that person. And the colors!

    For some of the pictures though, I wanted to see their expressions. Like the elderly women linked arm in arm.

  • Rabia September 20th, 2011 7:35 PM

    Colors are beautiful :) I wish the place I lived in was so interesting.. I mean, Waldo, a dude in a bicycle, and horse-riding..

  • gingerblackie September 20th, 2011 7:53 PM

    I love the horsie!!!

  • junebuglove September 20th, 2011 7:54 PM

    Beautiful photos. Love how the people are not posing I hate “cheese” photos!

  • rayano-banano September 20th, 2011 8:01 PM

    these are great! best eye-candy piece in my opinion.

  • Hunter September 20th, 2011 8:14 PM

    I like that sleeping umbrella man a lot.

  • sparkyee September 20th, 2011 8:36 PM

    big YAY! i’m glad she deviated from the original premise. this is all i dream about at night.

  • Sunshine September 20th, 2011 9:23 PM

    BEAUTIFUL photography. =D I love it. Out of curiosity – what kind of camera was she using?

  • diana94 September 20th, 2011 9:36 PM

    love the contrast between the pale colors in the back and the super bright clothes of the waldo guys plus the swarovski letters in the back

  • saranev September 20th, 2011 9:54 PM

    People watching is the best!

  • prettyontheinside September 21st, 2011 12:46 AM

    I love the fourth one with the boys wearing the same pink striped shirt!

  • julalondon September 21st, 2011 4:39 AM

    Love the one with the man and the boys on bikes; the one whos looking over his shoulder, -so cool! Thank you!

  • beatshappening September 21st, 2011 4:48 AM

    I really like this! but where were the pictures taken? It doesnt look like Amsterdam.

  • marieta September 21st, 2011 8:29 AM

    first photos reminded me of that miumiu video by lucrecia martel in which you couldnt see the models´ faces… intriguing indeed!

  • Minella September 21st, 2011 9:35 AM

    Omg a post about Dutch streetstyle! I now love you guys even more then I already did!

    I am from the Netherlands, so I’m feeling a bit proud of my tiny country right now, even though these pics (they’re great by the way!) aren’t something to be especially proud of ;p

  • Pashupati September 21st, 2011 11:29 AM

    I really like picture 2′s colors, and picture 8 (that’s how I imagine the dude from “E=MC² mon amour”!)
    Everytime I see pictures like that, taken in cities… I’m surprised because of how much it looks like Strasbourg’s centre-ville, near the more commercial places.
    Maybe we should make up their stories ourselves…

  • serena September 21st, 2011 1:20 PM

    YAY! I’m from the Netherlands and it’s so great to see pictures that are quite lovely of the little country I’m from.

  • koolkat September 21st, 2011 2:54 PM

    these are so beautiful! They make me feel like I have a real glimpse into their lives. People watching is my favourite thing. <3

  • sashka September 21st, 2011 6:57 PM

    these are awesome. What film did you use?

  • joenjwang September 22nd, 2011 7:25 PM

    All the pictures here on Rookie have that affected style. How do you guys do that…I hesitate to call it this but, effect? gosh. I want to learn how. They all look so charged with nostalgia

  • ichewmylips September 22nd, 2011 7:37 PM

  • fullmetalguitar September 23rd, 2011 11:34 PM

  • stellar September 25th, 2011 9:55 PM
