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!

Summer Stock Sunday, Another Brick in the Wall


We don't need no education


We dont need no thought control










No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone

Hey! Teachers!
Leave them kids alone!


All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.


"Wrong, Do it again!"


"If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding.
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"



"You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!"

Wow Jientje, these are fabulous! I love the way you move back and forth between gritty and whimsical, and your niece is a delightful model. I wish you lived closer, I'd have you take photos of my kids!

Thanks so much for sharing this for Summer Stock (I put your link up for you by the way, since you're off galavanting around Provence this week).

spacedlaw said...

Nice series, it looks like she had loads of fun...

Shelly Kneupper Tucker said...

How delightful! Your photos are always such an inspiration. Your niece in that lovely white dress is charming. Well done!

Melli said...

LOL! You and Paulien had waaaaaaaay too much fun in THAT old school yard! What a GREAT set of photos! And what a beautiful child!

hip chick said...

Oh yes!! the summer vacation! No more school!!!

quilly said...

She is a beautiful young lady, and you two certainly look like you had a lot of fun!

Leora said...

Your niece is gorgeous and adorable. Looks like you both had a great time.

Daryl said...

Wonderful shots, lovely model

Grace Albaugh said...

really nice post. Great photographs.

Maggie's Mind said...

Beautiful shots, and your niece is truly gorgeous. Loved this whole set, complete with lyrics. :)

ellievellie said...

And a supermodel is born! I agree bricks facinate! Your niece is blessed with beauty and presence - camera loves her!

Wanda said...

That was just perfect...such contrast made it all the more better...her young gentle beauty and the OLD BRICKS & MORTAR...plus the great lyrics!...Leaving with a smile!

Dianne said...

like stills from a really good rock video!!
I love that song

she is a wonderful actress, far more than a model

jessicasieghart said...

I always use song titles for my posts, but WOW! I love the way you "photographed" that song. The depths of the photos are incredible. I couldn't stop staring at the details. Your niece is a perfect model!

Barb said...

Oh, Jientje, what a glorious collection of photos. You and Paulien will cherish these forever! She is a beautiful young woman already! I love the photo of her reflection in the mirror where the reflection is in color and the rest is sepia. Genius!!

Faye said...

When did we lose the ability to interact naturally with the camera as your niece so aptly does? I've been trying to find just one photo where I don't look like I'm in pain or totally foolish, no luck. As a photographer, how much direction do you provide for your subjects? Or do you just let them "be" and wait for these perfect shots? Whatever your approach, it works. These photos are remarkable.

Bientje said...

My daughter Paulien is a natural! She loves the camera and ever since she was a child, she loved being taken photographs of, so...
So very unlike her mother... although I must say it has improved lately! I don't look like a total fool anymore on every picture!
Very nice photoshoot!
Big hug,
Your little sister

Thom said...

What a beautiful young lady she is. The photos are stunning and the music adds so much to this. She is a natural for this.

Nessa said...

Your niece is beautiful and a natural actress. Your photos as always are stunning and I love this post concept.

Jacob said...

Extremely interesting and fun to look at. The girl is just gorgeous and I can guess she'll go far if she decides to model or act!

Susanne said...

What a beautiful girl your young niece is!

Love the juxtaposition of your beautifu young niece in white against the old crumbling building.

Neas Nuttiness said...

Hey Jientje - thanks for the super macro tutorial...you may have created a monster, hee-hee!

Beautiful! Always enjoy your photos so very much. How is France? We are going to Paris next spring- give me tips if you have any. Perhaps we should go to Provence.

Unbelievable. This deserves its own gallery showing. Rich.

Mama said...

Oh my Jientje this post is just brilliant, your niece is a natural and I agree I can just see this series of photographs in a gallery, happy Monday, hope you are having fun in Provence. Kathy.

ROSIDAH said...
