2013 In Focus

  2013 has ended, so time for an overview of the most interesting images I took. I didn’t spend as much time on photography as I had hoped, but the time I took this Summer for some online tutorials from DxO (the RAW-software I use) certainly paid of. And also the other investments were worth… Read more »

Market, December 2013

  Every Thursday morning there is a market near my home. The first traders and the first customers arrive already very early in the morning. With the sun rising quite late this time of the year, it seemed a nice opportunity to go and take same pictures. Especially the contrast between the ‘light beakens’ of… Read more »

Winter in Antwerp, December 2013

  Yesterday was the opening of ‘Winter in Antwerp’. One of the activities was an impressive show by Orryflammes. On the technical side: the pictures were made with the recently launched Sony A7r… (a full frame ‘mirrorless’). Really interesting is the performance in the higher ISO values. E.g. the third pictures was made at ISO 10.000… and a… Read more »

11/11, 11 am

  “The war to end all wars”, that was what they had sworn in 1918. Reality is however different. A few weeks ago I went to the ‘Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917’, a museum that will give you a good insight in what happened in the neighbourhood during WW I. In the museum they have recreated… Read more »

‘Instant magique’, October 2013

  Yesterday evening there was an event in the ruins of the abbey of Villers (Belgium), called ‘Instant Magique’ (French, translation: ‘Magic Moment’). Also in 2010 and 2009 I attended the event, then called ‘Nuit Magique’ (‘Magic Night’). The setting is quite unique, certainly yesterday evening when there was a full moon. This year the animation seemed to be… Read more »

Queen of the Skies, October 2013

  On my way back from Rochester to Brussels, I had a stop in Atlanta. At the gate across mine, there was a Boeing 747, better known as Jumbo Jet or even Queen of the Skies, parked just a few meters from the window. A really impressive plane! And fortunately for me, the weather was… Read more »

Whiteface Mountain, October 2013

  Also this year I extended my annual trip to Rochester (NY, USA) with a few days of vacation. This year I went to the Whiteface Region, near Lake Placid. Although it was a long drive (6 hours…) it was certainly worth while. It is a beautiful region (yes, I have something with mountains…). The peak of… Read more »

The Color Run (Brussels), September 2013

  It is supposed to be the ‘Happiest 5K on the Planet’, The Color Run. And I have to admit: I’ve never seen so many smiling, happy people. I think they may have put something into the colorants… 😉 The Color Run is a rather recent phenomenon. The first was organized in January 2012, in Phoenix… Read more »

Chicago and the Twilight Zone, September 2013

  The twilight zone can be a really photogenic moment, but it is limited in time. The past days I was in Chicago and a few evenings I went into the city to make pictures during the twilight zone, e.g. ‘the bean’ and Trump Tower. In one of the pictures you can see kayaks: that… Read more »

Allgäu and Kleinwalsertal, August 2013

  Finally I had a week of vacation. A hiking week at the border of Germany and Austria: Allgäu and Kleinwalsertal. Although it’s at the beginning of the Alps, the scenery was already very impressive: from the Nebelhorn you have an impressive view on 400 summits (according to the local marketing, I didn’t recount them…). And… Read more »

Lightning, July 2013

  Last night a thunderstorm passed. Because I woke up and probably wouldn’t fall asleep again with all that noise, I got my camera and started taking pictures. And I – finally – got a lightning shot. There is a lot of light pollution in my neighbourhood, so it is not easy to make decent… Read more »

3×3 Basketball, July 2013

  Yesterday and the day before the 3×3 Eurotour Basketball was in Antwerp. And it’s a fast game. The images give you an impression. Eddy

Miracoco (psychedelic trip), July 2013

  If you are looking for a psychedelic trip (legal and cheap) and you happen to be in the neighbourhood of Antwerp (Belgium), you really need to visit Miracoco. Untill 28th of July the Architects of Air have put their tents in front of the Central Station of Antwerp, as part of the Summer of Antwerp…. Read more »

In the fields, Juli 2013

  Two days ago I passed a really nice field with rye (I guess) during a bike trip. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me, so I returned yesterday, with a bag full of equipment. Most pictures were shot with the 40 year old Minolta Rokkor 58mm f1.2, mounted on my NEX 7. Certainly… Read more »

Borgerrio, June 2013

  This afternoon there was a colorfull event in my neighbourhood: BorgerRio. Despite the drizzle, the groups left the audience with a feeling of sunshinie… Enjoy the gallery! Eddy

De Quaeye Werelt, June 2013

  The first WE of June there is each year a big fight near my home: De Quaeye Werelt, a re-enactment of a battle in 1447.  The whole WE you can see how life was in those days, with a big camp, a real tavern and hundreds of people, including some kings an queens. De… Read more »

Spring, April 2013

  It has taken a bit longer than usual, but it seems that spring finally arrived… The images were taken with a 40 years old lens: a Minolta Rokkor MC 58mm f1.2. With an adapter I can perfectly fit it on my NEX 7. It takes some time to get used to the manual focus,… Read more »

City of Wings Ypres, April 2013

  This WE the international street theater festival ‘City of Wings Ypres’ takes place. An ideal opportunity to take a camera and shoot. When I left home in Antwerp yesterday afternoon, the sun was shining. By the time I was in Ypres (about 1,5 hour drive) it was raining. Which meant that the organisation switched… Read more »

Zombifff Parade, April 2013

  Yesterday I read in the newspaper that there might be traffic jams in Brussels today. One of the reasons: the Zombifff Parade. A large group of zombies gathered in Brussels, as part of the ‘Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival’ (BIFFF). And as you might expect, there was a lot of blood… A regional TV reporter… Read more »
