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!

Ruby Tuesday Rain ... Go Away ...


When I woke up this morning, I heard it was raining.
The rain inspired me to use this series of pictures. They were one of the last series of pictures I made with my S5 and I want to share them, before they fade into oblivion in my archives.














It must have helped! I see a blue sky now!

I cannot believe the detail that are in these pictures. These are just awesome...some of the best you have done and it's so hard say that because all of your picutres are so fantastic. What an eye you have :) Aloha my Belgian Bombshell :)

Oww, water drops on plants is one of my most favorite objects to see! Magnificent shots. Have a great day :)

Oh .. Wow!! What more can I say!! Wow !!

I am fascinated by rain "tears" and you did a great job capturing these -- right down to the minuet details in the upside reflections! Bravo!

Robin said...

Inconvenient perhaps, but it made for some stunning photos! The reflection in that last one is just gorgeous!!

Greyscale Territory said...

Every shot is stunning! I love the glow of ruby in the drops! And some hold a small image too! Amazing!

Wanda said...

What can I say...a string of clear glass pearls that made me smile as I sit here with my morning coffee listening to a horrific thunderstorm...experiencing the quiet peaceful beauty of your photos! Thank you!

Leora said...

Delicious - can one say that about raindrops with colorful leaf photos? Love the second one, with the sharp Japanese maple leaf.

Melli said...

I was JUST photographing drippy red leaves the other day! NONE of mine came out like THAT! You're amazing! (well... I sorta have to admit none of my DRIPS looked like that either... God gives you really GOOD drips!

Rebecca said...

Absolutely gorgeous...how do you get shots like that?

@ Thom: An eye, yes, probably. But that does not work without a good camera! ( and vice versa)
@ Rosidah: Yes, I love waterdrops too, and the little miniature worlds in them!
@ Avril: Thanks!
@ Quilly: I made them on the day we talked on facebook a while back. I said I was going to try to capture their magic. Remember?
@ Robin: Lovely miniature worlds in them. But you KNOW that too, don't you! I've seen great ones at your blog too!
@ Greyscale: There is a miniture world inside EVERY drop. The magic is to capture them!
@ hip chick: I have not yet had a chance to try this with my new one, but I will!
@ Wanda: Your comments are always so poetic! Well said!
@ Leora: I suppose you can. Although I do wish it would stop raining today!
@ Melli: Please ask God to be a little less generous when he's pooring his good drops over Belgium, would you? He's at it again today! Sigh!
@ Rebecca: You need a good macro function on your camera. Not every camera has that. :-(

Jientje said...

@ Auntie E: Thank you!
@ Eaton Bennett: Thank you, I used to think they were amazing too!!

Marie Reed said...

I am absolutely blown away! This is pure art that you have created! What mind boggling beauty!

ellievellie said...

I have no idea how you make these jewels! It is a nice theme - I can see these decorating a space - red and chrystals - bold!

Marie Reed said...

It's been raining cats and dogs here too! I was going to post a 'parapluie' vintage postcard tomorrow:) Could I use one of your raindrop images too with a link back? They are just so amazing!

Wow ! I am wordless like a wednesday !
