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,a grandmothe and 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!


Heaven is in Belgium

Ruby Tuesday, Gotcha!

It looks like I was not the only one who wanted a picture of the Benedictine sisters at the beguinage of Bruges.

Find more Ruby Tuesday pictures here.

Not much red there but a good picture. The old and the new side by side.

Ralph said...

A gentleman in red is not seen often. But the picture seems to say "take me", so the opportunity for the rare picture compels us to snap away.

Your blog layout is great, so attention getting but is a quiet blue. Subtle and stylish!

Nuns in habits are almost an endangered species.

Libby's Library said...

What I see is the yellow daffodils.

This is a fun photo!

Perhaps he was getting a shot of you too :P

I have been to the one in Leuven (stayed at the hotel right outside the wall). I found it very peaceful to walk through there. If it hadn't been so cold (February!), I might have spent more time exploring.

That guy stands out, he is the only thing with any color (lucky enough it is red!)

Terri said...

That's a wonderful photo, with or without your man in red! I rarely see nuns in habits anymore; I guess it's not completely a thing of the past!

MaR said...

Love it!!!! What a great capture and conversation piece!
My ruby is here! :)
Happy Tuesday!

Carletta said...

That's just too funny!

Humorous pic. Contrasts work well. Both visual and conceptional. Very nice capture for RT. You have a great rest of the week!

Ivon said...

They must be on a walk looking for spring. This is a very interesting picture of picture taking. Thanks for sharing.

What a great shot! I'm sure you can enter this in some photo contest. How often does a photo opportunity like that come by! Good job recognizing it and taking advantage of it.
