So here’s a couple from the Spy services on the E42. Yes, you guessed it I’m bored waiting to head off to my last two English groups this evening before heading home. I have been thinking about coming here with my camera but have not so far as I’m always a little tired by this time of the day. Monday is a long day of teaching English.. Tuesday I start a little later which is good because I do not get home till 11 tonight. Unfortunately the walkway over the motorway is covered so it’s not possible to take any nice shots of cars and lorries as they scream past… Maybe I’ll find a nice bridge sometime.
Here is another shot from Sunday in Treignes. I decided to show this as an oil painting as the scene seems to remind me of something from my childhood, some painting that I must have seen. It seems to stir emotions within when I look at it, so I hope it does the same for you.
This was taken over the biggest dam in Belgium called “La Plate Taille”. OK it’s not that high but we live in a small country so I guess it’s size is relative. Again, I’m trying out Gimp, reducing the size of my images and adding a watermark. The images are first edited in Lightroom.
I was out this morning in the woods with our dog, Hawk the Malamute. It’s not easy taking photos and walking a dog but I have found ways round the problems like walking with my camera already attached to the tripod and training the dog to stand still…… honestly that bit is not so easy with a Malamute! The woods around here are just fantastic at the moment as the sun is low in the sky and streaks through the trees. It’s really magical in the early morning light but I do keep my eye open for wild boar, the deer are not a problem but the wild boar that are quite numerous here can get nasty..
The old railway line 156, Hastière – Chimay – Anor as it passes through the Bois de Blaimont.
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…
