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!

I thought this little dove would fly off when I tried to take a photo, but she happily posed for me!

Lovely shot, I like the muted color palate. (This is the first time in a while that your blog is letting me comment.)

Oh I do love this picture.

Nice little bird hanging around for you. I love the rustic-ness of the bench with the flakes of blue still there.

Collette said...

This is so nice to look at! The bird gives a wonderful focus point. (((HUGS)))

I always love your Midweek Blues. You are able to find color in the most unexpected of places.

I love the worn look of the bench. The dove is really a great addition to an already good photo.

The dove knows a great photographer when it sees one.

Leora said...

A new meme! At least new to me. Lovely, chipped old bench. I guess the dove was infatuated, too.

Love the simplicity of this shot. Diagonals, texture, blur, nature, man-made - and only 3 elements: bench, dove, background. Though you the photographer play a major role, too.

So sweet. What a perfect model the birdie was!

I'm loving the sunshine over there.

The dove blends in perfectly with the old bench - lovely!

Hello Jientje, I'm a big fan of Belgium, especially Flanders and very especially Gent, Antwerp, and Brugges.
I also enjoy DaPanne and Vuerne when I can.
I don't know why we use the French rather than the Flems names in the UK.
I also like Rodenbach (the beer not the place!)

Carletta said...

Love the peeling paint. It gives the bench a wonderful patina.
Simplictic but definitely not simple!

Loree said...

Great capture. Love that old chippy bench.

spacedlaw said...

How sweet of her!

loved the dove on the old worn out bench! We both had doves on our brains on the same day for our posts...isn't that funny?
