Waimes again

The day after, the weather was not so brilliant, but that also made for some great misty pictures as you can see :-)

Wonderful Waimes

Last weekend, Iuliana and I went to a family get together in the beautiful village of Waimes in the Ardennes. Beautiful nature walks and loads of fun were had. Other pictures to follow.
Oh yes, it was doubly good as I could use my father's backup camera... a Nikon D200 :-D
Great to finally hold a decent camera again...

Crimson beach

Both the previous pano and this one have been taken with Stijn's Samsung digimax A50.
For this picture I set it to the appropriate "Sunset-mode" which turned it more red. It's a bit over the top, but I do quite like the result I have one more that I'll probably post later.
For now, off to the beer-fest on grand place :-)
Ow yes, the iphone version is here as usual.


We've been to Oostende on a whim yesterday. The weather was gorgeous and the day was a definite winner

Well, yes I know, it's been a long time and also I know that having my camera stolen wasn't supposed to hold me back from taking pictures, but it has. I can't really explain it. Anyway enough with the excuses and on to today's post. I went for a photowalk in Brussels yesterday to finally test drive the Samsung Digimax A50 that my good friend Stijn lent to me. As you can see it does quite a good job!

Time for an update

This one is taken in Romania the last time we went there and is from the last batch taken with my Nikon. It's on the same day that we went to Lacu Rosu and these are the cliffs of Bicaz.

This is one of Iuliana's favorites. She keeps asking how it's doing when she is in London. Well here is the proof that it's doing more than fine, thank you! :-)
Took this one with Marcus' Nikon Coolpix S200.

Oh the irony

Today I was supposed to have a job interview at Pepsico in Zaventem. I said supposed because my daily life seems to not have lost it's sense of irony. I was going to take the 1142h bus to Zaventem to arrive there at 1221h which was expertly timed as the interview was at 1230h. As I get to the busstop I see a manifestation coming up the street towards me and in the direction the bus was supposed to take. So basically I missed a job interview because a manifestation for jobs blocked the bus for almost an hour.
Any who, I took this picture as I walked back home using my trusty cellphone :-)

Bad news and new ideas

I've been to visit Iuliana in London this past weekend until this morning, which was a load of fun!
The only thing that was not quite so much fun, hence the bad news in the title, was that while waiting for the Eurostar check in to open, my camera bag and with it, all of my equipment got stolen. This, as you can understand was not one of my best days.
But on a happier note, I have promised myself NOT to let this stop me from taking pictures and proving to myself and the rest of the world that my motto of: It's a poor workman that blames his tools, is true.
So, after getting over the initial shock and feeling of loss, I started using my cellphone's camera as my first experiment towards this aim. This is the first of what will be a lot of experiments to prove that it's not merely the camera that takes good pictures. In order for me to do this, I'm planning on asking people around me to let me use their camera for a day or so, to take pictures and to post them here, until I have saved enough money to replace my lost equipment.

Piatra's lake, minus the snow :-)

On our last day in Piatra, we went for a delicious bbq :-). Along the lake this time. The same lake as the one in this shot. Different position and less snow :-)

Back in Romania

It's Orthodox Easter and that means we're in Romania. We went to visit Lacu Rosu today.
A very picturesque little lake. Witness it's awesome beauty! :-)

Wonderland daddy!

As we were walking here a young girl was shouting to her father: "We're not in Holland daddy, we're in wonderland!!"

Pink overload

The hyacinths...

Damn! more flowers

Iuliana and I went to the floralien of Groot-Bijgaarden yesterday. Thousands of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths blooming away. If you're in the area of the Castle of Groot-Bijgaarden, do pass by there. It really is worth the visit! Students taking online college classes in biology will like to see all the different varieties of flowers currently in bloom. This is one of the 200-ish pictures I took there and I'm sure there will be several more to follow :-)

hm, another post :-)

Yup, another one :-) I was so happy with this one I just had to post it!
Hope you like it as well and the iPhone version is here.


For my Easter contribution; a macro of a beautiful tulip :-)

The not so pretty Brussels...

These pictures show that there is another, uglier side to Brussels. I went into town yesterday to take pictures as the weather was beautiful, but I wasn't very inspired. I only took 25 pictures and these are two of them. Due to the nature of the images I haven't made an iPhone version.

Flora urbana...

This is one from the same day as the ones in the botanique.
I usually don't do square crops, but for this one I've made an exception as it fit the subject and composition quite nicely.
The iPhone version is here. It has been stretched so as to fit the screen, but I don't think it's giving any bad effect on the image.

Botanique in spring

Since it was such gorgeous weather yesterday, I headed out to the Botanique to capture some springy shots. These are a couple of the results.
The first one is a composition of eight shots the second, a mere ten :-)

Thursday, 2 April 2009


This morning I've been experimenting a bit with our palm tree.
I liked this one the best. I know It's a bit abstract and all that, but I was quite happy with the composition and the way the light seems to radiate between the leaves.

All by itself...

And this was how I found the daffodil in the previous shot, standing all on it's own (well nearly anyway).

Easter part II

Since we were on the topic of easter in the previous pic, I thought I'd continue :-)
I took this one today and was very happy with it :-)

As Easter is rapidly approaching, I decided to edit this picture which I've taken somewhere last month, if memory serves correctly. It's one of the many bouquets I bought Iuliana over the years ;-).
I'm very pleased with the way it turned out! I hope you like it as well!

iPhone wallpaper pack the second!

Hello and welcome to the second installment of the iPhone wallpaper pack!
As you would probably assume, I keep track of the traffic on my little piece of the interweb and the first pack is one of the most popular pages so I've decided it was high time for a new one to keep all you iPhoners happy. Again, it contains ten wallpapers selected from the steadily growing number of wallpapers on this blog.
I would, again, like to thank Robin for being so kind as to host it on and he also deserves my thanks for being this months top referrer to my site! So thank you Robin!!
The pack can be downloaded here

Botanique by night

On Tuesday evening, my friend Paul and I went to do some nigh time shooting in town. This is the first of the resulting pictures. I'm quite satisfied by the result!
For those of you not from Brussels, this is the view from the botanical gardens towards the Koekelberg cathedral.

Soaking up the first rays

As the weather was quiet nice yesterday I thought I'd go out and see if there was anything worth shooting. Well it basically ended up with me being out for half an hour, taking three pictures and heading back in due to lack of inspiration. I did however take this one which I am very happy about. Especially since that whole street photography thing is not really one of my strengths.
This one is taken at the "Place des martyrs" in the center of Brussels.
I hope you like it as well.

And we're back

Hello my faithful and patient audience :-)
After having moved to another appartment, and having to decorate it (painting, painting and ow yes, some more painting) I'm finally back at the wheel of this thing :-)
Anyone who is in a similar position may want to look into having Article Writing Services write content for their site.
This picture was taken on our holiday in Portugal and after having painted the bathroom in a very nice, if not a little dark, blue, I remembered it because I might get it printed on canvas for the whole marine theme that's going on :-)
