- Antwerp, Belgium
- Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!
Heaven is in Belgium
Thursday, April 2, 2009
I took this picture on one of my recent walks in Antwerp two weeks ago.
The beguinage, a place where time has stood still.
Perfect for a sepia.
Although I prefer half sepia for this picture.
I thought it would be a shame to make those glorious daffodils fade into sepia.
But what I like is that the apartment building on the right blends in and almost disappears into the sepia sky.
I used Corel Paint Shop Pro x 12, and I created a layer by copying the background, then turned the layer into sepia, and removed half of it using the eraser tool.
It's simple once you get the hang of it!
