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!

Window Views, Old and New, Reflecting …

One of the beautiful old houses of the Leysstraat in Antwerp reflected in a modern office building across the street. This is one of the first pictures I took on my very first photo walk in Antwerp with my Big Guy. Now, according to the weatherman, the sky will clear by noon, we’re going to get some fairly warm temperatures for this time of the year. We might even get some sunny spells today. I have already seen some blue patches appear, so I’m going to get my gear ready, hop on the bus and hit the town! See you!

I love how you caught the statue in a window all by itself!
Hop on the bus and hit the town sounds like a lovely plan Jientje - have fun!

Mine’s here: Round The Bend.

This is great for a double meme Window Views and Weekend Reflections too. I love the old building reflected in the window.
Have a great Weekend!

P.s thanks for reminding me about Window Views.

Love this time of year. Not to hot, but when the sun goes down, there is a chill still in the air. Great shot!
