About Me

My photo
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!

Seriously cool bird shots!

quilly said...

These bird pics are outstanding! I especially love that hungry, open beak in the last photo. That black & white shot from the underside of the daisies is spectacular, too! We are going to have so much camera fun together!

The bird shots are amazing. The b/w daisy photo was very intriguing. it almost looks like an X-ray, very cool shot.

I love all the bird shots! Be ever so careful on your walk...

Melli said...

Oh boy! Dusting and cleaning can wait til tomorrow, for cameras get lonely we've learned to our sorrow...

Those bird shots ARE amazing! Being able to catch them up close and personal in their OWN surrounding is just too fabulous!

The daisies are a great shot too!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I love the shot of the daisies. enjoy the new camera.

Leora said...

You should throw your camera in a ditch more often. Your previous camera was already a great one, but 20x zoom sounds fab. Of course, there is the cost involved.

Love the monochrome flowers. And the birds close up are wonderful, too. Enjoy.

Beautiful shots and the best husband for getting you that lovely camera :)

Tatersmama said...

A great camera is one thing... but it takes a great photographer to get shots like these!
I'm so happy for you - and I have to admit, a little envious!

* Happy for you, hugs*

Yay, you got it!! Beautiful pictures, I especially love the one of the bird sitting on that metal whatever it is.

Mar said...

I can understand why you were impatiently waiting for your new camera. You two make a great team!
Amazing shots as always, my favorite one this time is the bird with the ivy!

Thom said...

I love the black and white photos. Excellent but they all are. I don't know how you do it. That one of the birds (the last one) should be sent to National Geographic :)

Maggie's Mind said...

The black and white daisies shot is just amazing. I really love it. Yay for cute little birdies, too!
