30″ Antwerp, April 2014

I have done some experiments with long shutter speeds in the past (eg. 30 seconds). And yesterday the weather seemed interesting to try it again: a decent wind, clouds passing by. This time I went to a number of iconic buildings in Antwerp. But: it is really hard to get good pictures… The buildings will… Read more »

Maya, April 2014

“Would you like to do something special together with me?”, that’s what I asked to the young lady that was sitting next to me last week at the show/conference in Hannover (see also this post). The answer was a little hesitant, “Yes?”. Well, if (unknowm) men ask such a question, you should be cautious. Fortunately I’m… Read more »

Kemmelberg bunker, April 2014

Yesterday I paid a visit to the ‘Kemmelberg bunker’, one of the relics of the Cold War. An ultrasecret bunker, initially intented as the command post for an international air defence system, but mainly used as a command post for excercise, crisis and conflict. For a long time this was an ultrasecret location, beneath a… Read more »

On the road (Marienhagen), April 2014

The past week I was in Germany for a few days, for a trade show in Hannover. Due to the cost I stayed in a hotel about 60km from Hannover, a one hour trip over small roads. Roads with a beautiful view. And fortunately also a parking, just outside Marienhagen, where I could stop to… Read more »

Venice, March 2014

Venice is of course much more than carnival. Once upon a time it used to be the economic power in the world. Which shows in the beautiful palaces, cathedrals, churches. But these days are over and the buildings show the influence of the elements: the marble isn’t smooth anymore, all buildings around the canals show… Read more »

Carnival of Venice, March 2014

This is something I wanted to do for a very long time: making pictures of the Carnival of Venice / Carnevale di Venezia. More than a year ago I started planning for this trip, with a visit to the official website of Carnevale di Venezia as the first step. About half a year ago, everything started to… Read more »

Global Rainbow (Leuven), February 2014

These days you can see a special rainbow in Leuven (Belgium): the Global Rainbow, a work by Yvette Mattern. Special because you can also see it when it’s not raining, thanks to seven lasers. And it’s also not really a ‘bow’, the laser beams go straight ahead. When the weather is good, even for 60… Read more »

Fiery Valentine, February 2014

This morning, mother Nature had a nice surprise when I went out to get my newspaper: a really fiery sky. Probably because it was Valentine’s Day today… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Eddy

New York City, January 2014

Last week I was again in New York, for my job. The contrast with two weeks ago, a week in the mountains, couldn’t have been bigger… As usual I had my camera with me, resulting in some nice pictures. One image is included twice: a version in color, another one in black/white, I couldn’t choose…… Read more »

Zero Visibility, January 2014

โ€œZero visibility Sirโ€, I must have heared that sentence at least 5 times last Wednesday, including a stamp with the same message on my entry ticket. Last week I was again in New York, for my job. And when I travel, I always check the position of the sun and moon for that period. A… Read more »

Snowshoes, New Year 2014

It’s that time of the year again: it snows in the Alps, which means that I’m going for a hike on snowshoes. This time it was again in Val di Sole / Trentino (Italy), at Hotel Ortles. We had a nice week: one misty day, one day of snow and the rest a lot of… Read more »
