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

Macro Monday, Hey Buttercup ....

One more "last" picture I took the day I ruined my camera. The wonderful super macro feature I had on that camera, is what I miss the most right now. I can still take "some" pictures with my old camera, but none of that macro work I love so much! *sigh*
Okay. I'll stop whining. But let's all hope and pray the Canon Gods will smile at me tomorrow and send me my camera?

I stay away from insects but yours is a fantastic shot. What Canon camera did you have/will you get again??
Happy Monday!

RA said...

Wow, that's a great macro shot! I know how it is out of camera, I hope the Canon Gods will really smile at you tomorrow and send the camera. Have a great week, Jientje :)

What an intriguing bug! I have never seen anything like it. Great shot!

Dagrun said...

I do agree. A bug can be beautiful and this certainly was a great macro shot.

Great pictures. I think you will find more on your new camera to love also. And, I love the quote.

Great Picture, My Macro quit working on my camera. For some reason since I found it at Lost & Found it has never been the same.

Someday I'll have a nice camera again. Hope you new camera arrives soon.
