Fun (at the market) or not?

Sunday markets are thriving. However, some shoppers do not seem to practice what they preach, which is understandable given the length of the lines. In your opinion, which one seems to be having more fun?

Rain, no matter where you are headed



Does one ever get used to rain? Continuous rainfall the last few weeks has left me craving for sun. It looks today as if there is hope at the horizon. 
Since I took up photography, I am less annoyed with the long red lights in Brussels and enjoy the opportunity to get my camera phone out, even when the results are blurry rainshots.

Marie-Antoinette in Westerlo


de Merode castle in Westerlo, located in the province of Antwerp, formed the magical decor for the historical musical "Marie-Antoinette,"  wife of Louis XVI. The costumes, the 3D projection, the cast, the stage set on the water.. glorious and spectacular. 
Graham decided to give a private, spontaneous - not part of the play- performance during intermission (last picture).
