Emile Braun square

The Emile Braun square is named after Emile Braun. He was one of the main engineers of the city of Ghent. He was also the major of Ghent when in 1913-1914 the World Fair of Ghent took place. A fun anecdote is that people used to call him: “Emile sweet-cake”. This little garden in the […]

Evening in Lisbon

It’s already a while ago I traveled to Madeira (see my Travel journal for Madeira). However, I also visited Lisbon during the same trip but haven’t posted any pictures of this city of lovers. The river bank of the Tagus is a nice area for an evening walk or to come to reflect after a […]

Weekend in Paris

I think I can say I’m getting to know Paris quiet well. At least good enough to guide friends to the known places and maybe some less known spots as well. Anush – an friend from Armenia – was visiting Belgium last week. Since it has become a tradition for me to visit Paris in […]

Tourist in Amsterdam

Yesterday I was visiting Amsterdam. We had lunch in The Rembrandt Corner  and I noticed some interesting subjects passing on the other side of the window. I preset the correct exposure on my camera and waited for the next subject. I had just finished my delicious spare ribs  – you should definitely try these  if you are […]

Under the rainbow

I just came across this photograph taken two weeks ago while I was on a family weekend. That night a huge storm would cause a lot of damage in the area. I hope these horses found a safe place to spend the night.

Horses enjoy the last sunlight under the rainbow before a storm would flood the area. Wallonia. Belgium.
Eid Al-Adha

This early morning in the park, I saw a young man walking in my direction. Immediately I knew I had to photograph him. He agreed to have him photographed. I asked him also why he was so dressed up. He was going to Eid Al-Adha. Also known as Feast of the Sacrifice. An important day […]

Last but not least, Sioen!

Thursday night, Sioen was playing on one of the pianos of the 123 Piano art project in Ghent. It turned out to be a mini concert in a unique location in Ghent.

It seems like it was raining pianos in Ghent. 123-piano is a musical project that brings people together through live music and provokes spontaneous interactions. (123-piano website)

Small beguinage O.L.V. Ter Hooyen

I’ve heard so many times about this beautiful place but I never managed to find it myself. Although I often pass this area of Ghent, I always missed it. I never thought there are still places as quiet as the Small Beguinage in Ghent. Many people are gonna be mad at me because I share […]
