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!

Macro Monday, Stone and Ivy

 

 

mm

This pretty baluster was in the garden of a castle I visited yesterday. I got as close as my camera would allow to capture some detail. I love the grain in the stone and the Ivy growing around the columns.

Great detail in the photos. The stone is so weathered and you can almost feel the texture though the photos.

Collette said...

I love how the vines just keep going. The purple & green show up so well against the stone. Have a great day! (((HUGS)))

Beautiful capture! I love the detail, too. Have a wonderful week :)

Oh, Jientje, these are lovely.

These are just beautiful! The texture of the stone against the vine made for a nice combo!

NicoleB said...

I love the detail and the tones!
Awesome!

Colleen said...

Really great shots. Unfortunately, living in America, we don't get to visit many lovely, ivy-covered castles. :(

I love what you can do with things that seem so ordinary. You see things I would never see.

I enjoy your comments on my blog, but please don't say you don't understand my stuff. You are too bright to be saying that. You comprehend more than you think.

I love the juxtaposition of the inanimate stone and the living ivy. There's real poetry in these pictures :)

jay said...

There's something very graceful and appealing about the combination of old stone and ivy, isn't there? And this old baluster is gorgeous! I like the second shot best. You did a great job!

Shelle said...

i love ivy & i love castles...splendid shots!

Kala said...

I like the way you've framed the first image.

Momisodes said...

I agree. The grain of the stone and ivy is wonderful in these!

Linda Higgins said...

these are wonderful shots! I like the shot of the ivy creeping around the stone and only showing its shoot peeping around....nice...

Wanda said...

The photos could represent one's path in life itself in a hard world...with all the twists and turns...being flexible helps one survive.

Regina said...

A beautiful details!
Well done.

Carletta said...

Knowing they are castle related makes them very romantic! Surely there's a princess in a flowing white dress just out of shot. :)
