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!

Weekly Winners, People

 

weeklywinnersmarch2010

 

I know Weekly Winners is supposed to be about your favorite photos of the past WEEK, but I’m cheating! For this week’s edition of Weekly Winners I am publishing some of my favorite “people” photos I took in the month of May.
I like to keep my posts themed, so please forgive me!

I have enjoyed pointing my camera in people’s faces on various occasions this month.

Very interesting photos! So sharp and I love looking at all walks of life. I am not good at taking people pictures. But you? An expert, I must say!

Great pictures!

Bridget said...

Love the costumed characters. Such cool shots, especially the sepia-ish one!

Colleen said...

These are amazing portraits. You are so bold with that camera. I get very self-conscious about taking pictures of "other" people.

I love the priest and the guy looking over his glasses. Great shots!

Christine said...

You always get such great people shots! I love them all. I a always afraid that somebody will want to beat me up if I take their picture and then there is the fact that us Canadians can be pretty boring at least around here. I am going to a cowboy camp with a friend in June so maybe I can get some good shots there. I still need a better camera though.

Denise @ Musician's Widow said...

These are fantastic! What great captures... a photo can say so much. And these all speak volumes.
