People of Belgium

The sight of this charming woman, who had a special poise and presence about her, showing up in a Snack Express Bar in Brussels, spontaneously made me think of the hugely popular Humans of New York blog. 
I asked her if she would agree for me to take her photo and she asked me: "Why and what for?"  My answer - "not particularly sure and not a very specific reason" - made her smile as you can see.  On the way out, I did give her a little piece of sandwich wrapping paper on which I had written down the references to TiB. Since then I've followed the recommendation I've received from a number of you and printed TiB cards that I can give out on occasions such as this one.  Great tip!

  1. Photo remarquable, ça valait la peine de demander…

    Pour ma part, je me balade avec un formulaire à signer. Si les gens disent oui, ils signent ce formulaire très simple qui me protège et les protège en même temps. :-)

    1. Merci, Roger
      En principe je suis tout pour ce le système de formulaire .. d'autre part, les formulaires (si on les présente au début) ont une incidence sur la spontanéité . It's a balancing act.

  7. Mooie vrouw die je mooi hebt vastgelegd en ik bewonder je durf.
    Dit jaar hebben we een opdracht voor de fotografieles: mensen fotograferen in de straat, ook geïnspireerd op de NYse blog en ik ben er nog steeds niet toe gekomen, ik vind dat heel moeilijk. Een naamkaartje kan zeker helpen zodat mensen weten wie je bent, maar daar ben ik ook nog altijd niet toe gekomen :S = uitstelgedrag ;)

    1. dank je Elektra, voor compliment maar ik verdien het niet want er komt geen durf bij te pas.. it just happens.. Ik deel geen naamkaartjes uit, gewoon een kaartje met de url van de blog. Zo kan men me, indien gewenst, toch altijd terugvinden.
