2009 In Focus

And of course my best wishes for 2010! I wish you a magical year! For myself hopefully with a lot of photo opportunities, which […]

Snow shoes, Trentino, December 2009

It is winter time, so I took a trip to the snow. It didn’t look that good when we entered the Val di Sole: positive temperatures and no snow at all… But when we arrived in Cogolo, there was already some snow. And Giulio (the guide) of course knew the spots with the best, the […]

Nuit Magique (Villers Abbey), October 2009

Yesterday I experienced a magical night. To avoid confusion: an event called ‘Nuit Magique’ (magical night in French) at the Villers Abbey. The abbey itself is already very interesting (I was there last week to take some pictures), the lighting with torches, candles and certainly the animations made it even more special. Really a magic […]

Villers Abbey, October 2009

This afternoon I paid a visit to Villers Abbey. Once upon a time it must have been an impressive building complex. Now only ruins are left. Although the ruins themselves are also impressive, I have to admit. The pictures are not the classical old-builing-pictures that most tourists take. It is a set of impression, usually […]

Cultuurmarkt XXL, August 2009

Cultuurmarkt XXL is the start of the cultural season in Flanders. The start was not what they had planned: there was a fire in the historical Carolus Borromeus church. Fortunately, the firefighters are literally located just around the corner, so damage was limited. And Cultuurmarkt XXL become a great hit. In the gallery you can […]

CultuurMiXXL, August 2009

Last Saturday there was CultuurMiXXL, the warming up for the Cultuurmarkt. On a podium on the Grote Markt in Antwerp there were – very different – concerts from Bai Kamara Jr., Sopha, Gloria and Meneyce. In between DJ Synderella played some tunes. In the gallery some images from the concerts and the atmosphere. Eddy

Tango by Moonlight / Antwerp Dances, August 2009

At the ‘most beautiful dance floor in the City’, you can enjoy ‘Tango by Moonlight’ and other Latin dances, during summer time. It’s the same organisation where I already made some tango pictures, earlier this year. I’ve been there twice this summer. In the gallery you can enjoy some pictures of both times (and here […]

Cultuurmarkt Kassa, August 2009

As a prelude to the Cultuurmarkt (culture market), next weekend in Antwerp, there were several ‘installations’ placed on well known squares. Since I am the official photographer of this edition of the Cultuurmarkt, I had to go and see… In the gallery you can find some impressions. Eddy

Manège Carré, July 2009

For every teenager or adult who has a secret dream to ride a carrousel, the Manège Carré (from Le Manège Carré Sénart) is a must. Young and old (and everything in between) can enjoy a ride on this very special carrousel. Not with the obvious horses, no with buffalos, reptiles, insects to ride on… Beautifully […]

Normandy, July 2009

In July I’ve taken a short break in Normandy. Which is something completely different from my usual trips (being: the mountains). Normandy is not only a coast (with beaches, sea, boats, etc…). It’s even more ‘History’ (with a capital H). The Normandy Landing is ubiquitous. In several places you can visit old bunkers, in the […]

Murga Parade, June 2009

Strange and loud people in Antwerp today. Not so uncommon for Antwerp people might think, but today they were extra strange and extra loud. The reason: Murga Parade! With such an interesting event, the amount of pictures is huge… I tried my best to limit the amount a bit, but I didn’t succeed. A lot […]

Tango, June 2009

Tango, the dance of the subdued emotion… I’ve tried it once, with only limited success (I leave it open who was to blame for that). On a regular basis there are open air tango events in Antwerp. This afternoon I’ve visited one. And witnessed the modest passion of this dance… Eddy

De Quaeye Werelt, June 2009

There was a huge riot in my neighbourhood this afternoon… Fortunately, is was only for play… And afterwards everybody went to his tent to have a beer, to enjoy the barbecue. (why isn’t life always like that?). This WE it was once again ‘De Quaeye Werelt’, an event where I also made some pictures last […]

Flowers & Bees, June 2009

This afternoon, during a short break from work, I noticed some bees hovering over the lavender bushes in my garden. So I took out my camera and made some pictures. I know, the last one has some motion blur: that bee seemed to have ADHD! 😉 Eddy

Africa <> Tervuren 2009, May 2009

This WE there was a lot of activity in the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren: ‘Africa <> Tervuren 2009’. There were e.g. several shows by African groups. With a lof of drums and ritme of course. Which invited young and very young to dance… Eddy PS: yes, I’m aware of the fact that […]

Doel, May 2009

In the neighbourhood of Antwerp there is a small village called Doel. It has to be demolished, due to the expansoin of the port of Antwerp. Some artists are protesting against the destruction, by decorating some of the houses. I went there today to take some pictures. Eddy
