Landscape Park Duisburg-Nord, June 2016

Last week I was a few days in Germany. One of the days I visited the Landscape Park Duisburg-Nord (Landschafstpark Duisburg-Nord). It used to be an industrial site, with a blast furnace, now it’s an industrial heritage site. The sheer size of the furnace, the plant, the site is immense… And where there used to […]

Fragile (Zinneke Parade), May 2016

Lots of interesting people in Brussels last Saturday: the Zinneke Parade. The theme of this edition: ‘fragile’. Although the theme was chosen about two years ago, due to the terror attacks in March, it certainly got an extra dimension. The Zinneke Parade wanted to prove that Brussels lives and will live on. On their website, […]

Ghent Floralies, May 2016

Every five years (or so), there is a big event with flowers in Ghent: the Floralies. Sunday, at the last day of the event, I went there to take some pictures. Most of the pictures were, once again, taken with the Minolta MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2, which is an excellent lens for taking pictures of […]

Floralia, April 2016

Tulips are blooming, that’s certainly the case at the castle of Groot-Bijgaarden/Grand-Bigard (Belgium), where Floralia Brussels takes place. Also these pictures were made with the Minolta MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2. Really a fun lens to photograph flowers. And yes, I did enhance the colors a tiny bit… 🙂 Eddy PS: pictures from previous editions are here: […]

Bluebells, April 2016

Spring has arrived and all kinds of flowers are showing their best. E.g. bluebells. There is one place in Belgium which is really famous for its bluebells: Hallerbos. But you can also find them in other places. Earlier this week I found a few in the park around my corner, hidden under some trees. The […]

Ypres City of Wings, April 2016

City of Wings Ypres is an interesting event, it’s the place where street artists present their new show, this year over 70 different groups. But it’s in April, so sometimes the weather can ruin part of the show… Like yesterday… It was just starting to rain when we arrived, the largest part of the program was […]

Schoonselhof, March 2016

Schoonselhof is the biggest cemetery in the neighbourhood of Antwerp. It has a large number of really beautiful graves. A number of them are from famous people. But also the older graves, from wealthy families are really georguous. Yesterday we went there for a tour, in between the interesting stories I made some pictures. But […]

The day after 22/03, March 2016

Today should have been 23th March, but it has become ‘the day after 22th March’… The day after the terrorist attacks in Brussels. It was a horrible day. But unfortunately, it wasn’t completely new to me… On 11th September 2001, I was packing my bags to fly from Chicago to Brussels, when I saw, live […]

St. Paul’s (Antwerp), March 2016

One of the hidden treasures in Antwerp (Belgium) is certainly St. Paul’s Church. It is a beautiful church, with a number of top paintings, e.g. by Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens. But also the woodwork is really pretty, the carvings are so detailled… Last WE I went there to take some pictures, mainly of the statues. […]

Light, February 2016

Being lightpoet I have to make pictures of light from time to time… 😉 Every day thousands of commuters pass these lights, probably none of them has ever seen the simple beauty of them. The pictures are made in the passage between the metrostation Diamant and the Central Station in Antwerp. Photo 3, 4, 5, […]

Chinese New Year, February 2016

Yesterday the Chinese community in Antwerp celebrated Chinese New Year, with a traditional dance of the dragon and the lion. And a lot of noise from a lot of fireworks… the whole street was covered in a blue haze from the smoke… And the lettuce, that brings luck if it is eaten by the lion… 🙂 Eddy […]

Singapore, January 2016

Last week I attended a wedding, a special wedding: it was in Singapore. One of my best friends lives already a number of years overthere, for his job. And for such an occasion, one wants to jump on a plane… Next to the wedding and so, and a lot of rest, I did have the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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
