…. and a Nokia Lumia 1020
This is a shot I took a while ago now… I was sitting in Starbucks in the Central station in Brussels (La Gare Centrale). It was a Sunday and I had just been to the Palais de Beaux-Arts (Bozar) à Brussel, I was on my way back when I thought I would get the camera out. Taken using an 85mm Samyang which is totally manuel but gives excellent results.
OK so I’m sitting in this burger bar in Namur taking photos of unsuspecting people but I’m really happy with the result…
A selfie, a selfie… (that’s a Monty Python and the Holy Grail thing! 10 points if you know what the correct saying is and what scène it comes from:-)) Well, I just had to do it at some point or the other didn’t I.. I had just finished 150 km on my motorbike winding through the Belgian and French countryside getting things ready for Sunday afternoon’s outing of our small band of bikers, we all have to vote in the morning (less interesting activity). This reminded me of the song by Pink Floyd, Wish you were here.
I have an hour between groups on a Monday and so I go and spend my time eating my lunch by the river Meuse near Namur. There’s this small park just next to a set of locks and a weir where people walk and a small bridge over the weir goes to the other bank. I saw this family walking through the park yesterday. I couldn’t decide whether to leave the image in colour or put it in monochrome but in the end I decided the colour image has far more meaning….
I just saw the post by Adrian Pym that inspired me to share this photo with you that I took of my son on the stepping stones at Dovedale this year.
In 1993 three young people met on a barge moored in the Bonaparte dock in Antwerp. 20 years later they decided to meet again… Strangely an old barge not unlike the one they met on was moored there and it was called, Antwerp 93…
Here is a photo I took today of my wife.. We were taking photos to send on CVs but I just couldn’t resist playing a bit :-)
Shot today during Namur en mai..
Here is a head shot I took of one of our Pioneer Scouts on Saturday.
There is nothing like using your own family to test out your ideas now, is there?
