Kings Day 2024 a street photography style overview

Kings Day 2024

It’s all Orange!

If you have been following the blog for some years you probably already know what’s coming.
Today’s it’s “Kings Day” in the Netherlands.
This means you will see the color Orange popping up everywhere and of course our Dutch flag (Red, White, Blue).

The color orange is directly linked to the Royal family,  which is named “van Oranje-Nassau” or “House of Orange”.


For street photography, Kings Day is one of the best days to experiment. But also when you are starting out and maybe a bit nervous to take pictures of people on the street, this is the perfect day. As you can see in the pictures everyone is in a real festive mood, and there are loads of activities.

During and around Kings Day there are several activities including concerts and festivals.
We always visit the flea markets. As you can see in the photos, the streets are jam-packed with people and there is a mix of kids sitting on the floor selling their toys (ok this sounds very sad, but it’s not :D), grownups selling their toys the stuff they don’t need anymore, homemade food or other products, and of course some commercial sellers.

The photos

This year I decided to not bring my normal camera but shoot everything with the iPhone 15 Pro max and edit everything on the Lightroom CC app on the iPad Pro. In essence, it’s mostly one of my presets 😀

I hope you get a nice overview of the flea markets during Kings Day in our area in the Netherlands this way.

Did you know I recorded 2 videos on street and travel photography?
One was shot during a trip in Scandinavia
The second video is filled with great locations in New York
