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!

Sepia Scenes, Bokrijk Museum Park

It's been a while since I've done a Sepia Scenes, it seems.
The nostalgic decoration inside the houses at Bokrijk Park Museum are perfect for Sepia Scenes.
All the old houses at the Museum Park are decorated inside with the same old furniture, authentic utensils and tools our grandparents would have used daily.

Find more Sepia Scenes participants here.

I's amazing what a difference this makes, in the "feel" of the photo's.

I'm going to have to give this a try.

Lovely sepia scenes! You are right, the old fashioned scenes do resonate well from a sepia print.

Is there no type of photo you don't know how to do? These are just excellent. I wish you would do that monochrome meme. I think you would be fantastic at that one as well :) Perfect :)

Perfect pictures for Sepia. They look like they were taken long ago when there was no color film.

Ah, the sepia adds so much to these photos. They match the time of the subjects wonderfully.
