People of Madeira

Some of the photographs in this post you may have seen already in my travel journal of my trip to Madeira. However, I wanted to post a special about the people I’ve met on the road. At first sight, the people of Madeira might not look very open or welcoming to strangers, but as soon […]

Rolleiflex SL35 m (2)

After the satisfying result of my first film with the Rolleiflex SL35 camera, I couldn’t wait to start shooting a second film. I never though I would be able to shoot descent pictures without any difficulty. Almost as easy as a point-an-shoot camera. This story isn’t over yet! You can find my first post with […]

People often say they make photos but only look at them once. That’s often true for me too, but this week I was showing some of my work to a friend when I found these photos made in Brussels. I made them a few years ago, still with my Nikon D5000. I love practicing photography […]

Paris, Je t’aime

Paris. Still my favorite city trip destination. I’ve been in Paris several times now, and its diversity keeps surprising me. Until now, there was only one thing I didn’t like in Paris. Finding a restaurant at the end of an exhausting – but still pleasurable and rewarding – day in Paris. How do you find […]

La Seine, Île de la cité, Notre Dame, Le Louvre. Paris.
Happy Eastern everyone !

France in one of the biggest producers of rapeseed in Europe. Together with Germany, Poland and the UK. If you would drive through France one of these days you’ll definitely see the rapeseed fields. I love the bright yellow color.

Two black and white photographs taken while wandering around in Gent. There is always something interesting to catch on digital media in this city.

Reading at the Korenlei

While we were enjoying the sunlight on the Graslei, someone else was reading at the Korenlei. The opposite side of the Leie.
