Graffiti art and street artists.

Every city, every urban place has mostly 1 thing in common, they all have some places and streets were you can find graffiti. From little tags around the corner to pieces of art.

I went for a walk in Belgium to find some of those pieces, some were also taken from my last trip to Lisbon. Enjoy.

The old shoe factory.

Yesterday I went to an abandoned shoe factory, located in Belgium. What was once a huge shoe factory was now a place taken by nature. You can find the last shoes that did not make it to the store…

Also signs of the first computers were found in the factory. In the coming week, this place will be completely demolished. So these photos are the last witnesses.

Rotterdam

Rotterdam at night.

Rotterdam, city of architecture. On a cold day, I went from Belgium to Rotterdam for some long-exposure shot’s. From buildings to bridges, illuminated with lights in all colors. Enjoy 🙂

 

Shoot with Daisy

 

Last week we tested or studio setup with some friends. In the early morning we started unboxing our equipment and after some tests with the flashes or model was ready to pose.

For this shoot with model Daisy I used 2 studio flashes with soft box and 1 umbrella. The photos outside were with natural light and 1 Sunbounce reflector.

 

 

 

The laundry house

Last week I visited an abandoned building that was used as a flax dry and wash place. It was left alone since a couple of years. After entering the building, there was a view from the first floor on an old Mercedes that was fighting against time and decay. I took the photos in HDR, with some post-processing. This old factory is located in Flanders, in the region where once the textile industry was booming business.

Along the Belgian coast.

Went for a walk along our Belgian coast (Nieuwpoort) with some friends.

While we were waiting for the sunset that was not coming, I took these photos.

They were taken with my D7200 and the Nikon 16-80. I did not have any filter but used the multiple exposure setting in my camera. Some post processing was done in lightroom.

 

 

 

FACTS, one of the biggest sci-fi, anime and comic festivals in the Benelux.

F.A.C.T.S. – may the force be with you…

FACTS is one of the biggest comics, sci fi and anime event in the Benelux. It’s yearly event in Ghent where every character come to life. A meeting place for cosplay. (cosplay = costume play, where people wear costumes and accessories to represent a character from a game or movie). One thing is for sure, it’s a good place to take a photo !

If you want more photo’s, there is a lot more on my Flickr page : click here

The turning torso in Malmö (Sweden)

The Turning Torso, a landmark in Malmö.

Recently I visited Malmö, where the Turning Torso rises up in the sky. The huge building is an architectural eyecatcher.

The Turning Torso is a residential skyscraper. With his 190 meters height it is the highest building in the Nordics.

krakow people

In the streets of Krakow…

Black and white series of photos taken during my stay in Krakow. A beautiful city, nice people. A couple of photos were taken in Kazimierz Jewish quarter and others were taken in the area around the main square. Krakow has everything for a good city trip.

 

Castle of Beauvoorde in West of Flanders - Kasteel van Beauvoorde.

Somewhere in Belgium, there is a beautiful castle…

Located in Beauvoorde, this is one of the most beautiful castles. It was built in 1408 and after it was buried down it was rebuild in 1617. In 1875 a new owner, Arthur Merghelynck, undertook an extensive restoration. The interior fittings and furnishings inside it today date from Merghalynck’s time. The castle was promoted to historic monument status in 1987. It’s still possible to visit this castle, also the park around the castle is worth visiting. There is even a special program for children to visit this castle with activities 🙂 so when you are around, must visit.

Spring in black and white

Spring…in black and white.

Spring is here, but this time not in all colors. Also without colors, you can create beautifull shot’s of flowers, sun rays and leaves. Enjoy the nature in black and white.
