2015 In Focus

2015 has come to an end. And for a number of reasons, it was a year that I will never forget… The year certainly brought a number of interesting photo moments, with some little diamants as a result. For the photographers: all pictures were made with the Sony A7R. I have this camera now for… Read more »

Prague, December 2015

After a few days in Dresden, we drove to Prague, the real goal of our trip last week. Prague is a beautiful city… I had already been there a few times, for my partner it was her first visit. And it was a real discovery for her. An even for me, after so many times, it’s… Read more »

Dresden, December 2015

Last week, on our way to Prague, we stopped a few days in Dresden (Germany). It’s a beautiful city, but with a fraught history… At the end of WWII it was bombarded, in three successive waves, leaving almost nothing standing… In the DDR era, the Frauenkirche was left as a ruin, as a memory of… Read more »

Winter in Antwerp, December 2015

The end of 2015 is near, so there are a lot of activities all around. These are some pictures from ‘Winter in Antwerp’, with the cathedral dressed in red… Eddy

Die Buchstaben, November 2015

It is a tribute to Gutenberg, the installation ‘Die Buchstaben’ from Anselm Kiefer. Sun flowers grow from the frame of an old printing press, the seeds transform into movable type (or something like that). It is part of a private collection, but for a short time it is exposed to the public in Antwerp, in a really… Read more »

Alsace, November 2015

Last week we went a few days to the Alsace region in France. The fall colours were beautiful, both in the vineyards and in the forests. We also visited the museum of Hanzi, a famous painter who has a typical style, a style which you see everywhere in the Alsace region. Eddy

The man who carries the cross, October 2015

The cathedral of Antwerp has a new piece of art, the first in almost a century. It is a sculpture made by Jan Fabre and it is called ‘The man who carries the cross’. It is a beautiful and it really fits in the cathedral. The official inauguration is in a few weeks (18/11/2015), so… Read more »

Ostend, October 2015

Last WE we took the train to the sea, to Ostend (Belgium). The weather was really gray, which creates a certain atmosphere. And a walk along the beach in this kind of weather was really nice. Eddy

50 years, October 2015

It’s that time of the decade again, a ‘big birthday’, the 50th to be precise. And as tradition wants, there is a book associated with this big birthday. A photo book, of course. Above you can find all the photos that appear in the book, 50 in total. And if you want to see the book (with… Read more »

Middelheim, October 2015

I have been living in Antwerp (Belgium) for quite some time now, but the last time I visited the Middelheim Museum was when I was in school, in the early 1980’s. Something I’m not proud of… The Middelheim Museum is a wonderful place. The collection of statues is impressive. And certainly now, when the leaves… Read more »

Superbloodmoon, September 2015

The marketing services of the moon have done a great job: everywhere you could read and hear about the superbloodmoon that showed very early this morning. And it is a very special event, if you didn’t see it today, your next chance will be in 2029. I witnessed part of it, from the last part… Read more »

Lake District, August 2015

Last week we went to the Lake District (England). And all the clichés were present: lakes, hills, clouds, rain and sheep. 🙂 And the weather was, from a photographic point of view, fantastic… The sun and the clouds produced a beautifull patchwork of light and dark on the hills… BTW: the first two pictures are from… Read more »

Obsteig (Tirol, Austria), July 2015

When you think of Tirol (Austria), the image of The Sound of Music will probably come to your mind. And that was indeed the setting of our vacation last week. 🙂 The physical level was lower than what I was used to the previous years, due to circumstances. But even in this ‘light’ version, the… Read more »

Ludwigsburg, July 2015

On our way to Austria, we made a stop in Ludwigsburg (Germany). I never heared of this city before, but thanks to Google Maps and Booking.com it seemed an interesting place to stay on our way to our vacation. And it really is a nice place: an old, pleasing city, with a large market place… Read more »

Headlights, June 2015

Headlights might seem a strange subject, but actually these headlights are part of a performance from the ‘Summer of Antwerp’: the Giants. Grandma Giant arrived earlier this week, but is still in bed. Behind her bed is a wall of headlights, which are really pretty to photograph… Eddy

De Quaeye Werelt, June 2015

There was a huge fight in my neighbourhood this WE. Both on Saturday and Sunday: ‘De Quaeye Werelt’. That is a re-enactment of a battle in 1477. And it’s something really interesting to photograph, to witness. The amount of work that those people put in their costumes, amazing. Only one guy wasn’t really historically correct: he… Read more »

Roses are [not] red, June 2015

This WE there is once again a ‘rose fest’ in a public parc nearby. Today I went there for a ‘sneak preview’. But most of the roses didn’t have flowers yet… I hope this will be different by Sunday. Eddy PS: the images from last year are here.

Backstage, May 2015

I didn’t only make pictures of the dress rehearsal of The Prince, the Swan and the Lake, I was also asked to make pictures backstage, just before the actual performance, when all dancers got their make-up, when everybody was getting ready for the show. Eddy PS: for the photographers reading this post: all pictures were… Read more »

The Prince, the Swan and the Lake, May 2015

Black Liza, May 2015

Black swans are rare. So if one appears somewhere, it will probably appear in the local press. And that’s how I found out about a black swan in the park close to my home, the ‘Rivierenhof’. And the swan even got a nickname: Black Liza. On the way back from the park, we encountered more… Read more »
