2012 In Focus

Another year has passed… I wish you all the best for 2013! And I hope you can enjoy a selection of images I made in 2012. Eddy PS: the past weeks I made some minor changes to my photo blog. The main change is that all pictures are now shown immediately and also on devices […]

Fall in the Adirondacks, October 2012

For about a decade I travel for my job during fall to Rochester, upstate New York. In the past it used to be mid November, but this year it was mid October. Which was a much better period from a photographic point of view: the turning of the leaves. So I extended my official trip […]

Lambermontmartre, September 2012

Today it was the last issue this year of ‘Lambermontmartre’, a market place for artists in Antwerp. The pictures were taken with a very special lens: the Minolta MC Rokkor-PG 58mm f1.2. I recently bought this from eBay, for a reasonable price (sometimes the prices are very unreasonable). The 58mm f1.2 is quite famous, both in […]

Liberation of Antwerp, September 2012

This WE the liberation of Antwerp was remembered. Between some job related stuff, I went to see the parade of military vehicles. I guess not everything was really  historically correct: e.g. a GI with an iPhone (is that an G-iPhone?) and a playboy bunny on one of the jeeps… What was real and correct: a […]

Manifesta 9, August 2012

At this moment Manifesta 9 takes place in Waterschei/Genk. It is a ‘nomadic biannual event’ which combines contemporary art with older art and industrial heritage. On Friday evenings it is open untill 22h, making it a nice opportunity to visit the impressive site of Waterschei by moonlight. And regarding that moonlight: timing is everything… Yesterday was […]

Trentino, July 2012

I’ve been a week in Trentino (Italy), for some hiking in the mountains, for some fresh air. As usual Orianna en Giulio made it into a treat: nice hikes, nice food. And the company was also great. Eddy PS: there is also an extended gallery (68 pictures).

Murga Parade, June 2012

The ‘Grand Place’ in Antwerp was pretty crowded today. Lots of noisy people. Yep, it was the yearly Murga Parade. With lots of colorful people, with lots of rythm, exuberant dancers (some of them are really athletes, don’t underestimate an afternoon of energetic dancing!). The number of pictures was very high (over 26 GB…), so […]

New York City, June 2012

The past week I was again a few days in New York, for my job. After I had to check out of the hotel and before I left for the airport I had a few hours to run around. And there’s always something to see… E.g. free Zumba lessons! (no, I didn’t particpate…  ) Eddy

Disorder (Zinneke Parade), May 2012

Strange people in Brussels yesterday. Lots of strange people. And loud! With rythme! Yes, the Zinneke Parade took over the streets around the ‘Grand Place’. And as expected, it was a lust for the eyes, the ears. Eddy PS: the pictures of the previous Zinneke Parade, in 2010, are here.

Toer de Nord, Antwerp, May 2012

Antwerpen-Noord does not always get positive coverage in the news. But today everything was positive vibes: Toer de Nord. An XL street theater festival, full of music, games, theater, art and lots more… And – yahoo! – my favorite murge Sentimento Verde woke up from their winter sleep! I do mis their golden dresses, but their […]

City of Wings Ypres, April 2012

This WE the festival ‘City of Wings Ypres’ took place. It is a festival where street theatre makers can introduce themselves, a festival where street theatre lovers can get an overdose. This time there were women in trees, women playing with fire, man with fiery suits, man with multiple flutes and real super bugs… Too […]

From Then, Now and Later, March 2012

“The beginning. My life was quite normal. I was 8 years old and lived together with my parents, my brother, my sister…” These are the words on the first statue in the exhibit ‘From Then, Now and Later’, a project from the SISA school (Antwerp), on the Holocaust and many other genocides during the past […]

Snowshoes, Stubaital, March 2012

The adventures on snowshoes were rather limited this winter, due to the late arrival of the snow and a trip that was cancelled. Eventually I ended up in a place with a very pretty name: Schönberg (translated: pretty mountain) in the Stubaital (Austria, near Innsbruck). There we made three pretty hikes. The weather gods were kind […]

New York City, February 2012

The past week I was in New York for my job. Fortunately I did have some time on Sunday and in the evening (after the conference I attended) to take some pictures. The first picture in the gallery is from 1 WTC, formerly known as ‘Freedom Tower’. And sometimes you have to be lucky: the […]

Chinese Newyear (CoStA), February 2012

About a year ago I started taking Tai Chi lessons, you know: a healthy spirit in a healthy body. Today our teacher (Si GingCong) organised his annual Chinese New Year event. With a performance by Xia Hua who played a BiBa, demonstrations Tai Chi and a short performance by two young ballet dansers. The light […]
