National holiday by guest photographer (I)

As I was not around on July 21, the national holiday in Belgium, I invited my friend Els Hattink (photographer and painter) whom I wrote about a few times in the past, to share her impression to fill the void.

Saint Bernard and Icecream


Saint Bernard dogs adore ice cream. Pictures taken near the Abbey of Averbode, where ice cream is as famous as the Abbey, as I will explain in one of my next posts.

Wedding guest

The girl, totally oblivious to the world around her, was a guest at an absolutely wonderful wedding cocktail last Sunday. She presented me with a movie set-like photo op.

June Academy trip



Visiting the art schools at the end of June is one of my all time favorites.  
This year I only made it to Leuven, where  'Kantklossen' (hand made bobbin lace) figures on the list of subjects to study  at the Academy. Interested anyone?
