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

Beautiful shots! I especially like the barbed wire with the tuft of hair. Ouch!

I like the second one where you have framed the trees with trees. Very nice. I also love all the muted morning color.

Joyce said...

I should put on my boots this morning. I feel like I am right there with you in these beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing your day with me.

Danifred said...

What a beautiful place you live in! I love the fence photos :)

Tara R. said...

Wonderful set! I really like the mood with all the fog. I especially like the last snap with the puddles and sky reflections.

Ms. Fiddlesticks said...

Love all of them but especially the last one. A wonderful place you have to enjoy and take great pics. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Hope I can make the USA as interesting as Belguim.

Maude Lynn said...

These are amazing! I particularly like the first picture of the fence.

moneythoughts said...

Just fields and fences, and yet such beautiful shots. I like these pics too.

Lyn said...

Oh, those photos are beautiful. The barbed wire is my favourite!


I'm with everyone else. The barbed wire is phenom.

Korie said...

I love the 3rd one! They are all beautiful though. You really capture how a place feels just as much as how it looks.

Amy said...

Lovely!! Good color. The reflection is really a nice one!

Anonymous said...

Beautiful. I love the morning mist and clouds. And so many wonderful reflection photos. Excellent my Belgian Bombshell :)

MOO said...

The barbed wire shots are awesome...actually, I like all of these snaps. Thanks so much for sharing!

Jewel said...

I love the last one most, but they are all beautiful! I love the trees scattered across the dusty horizon.

Wanda..... said...

It looks as if there's an opening in heavens above and I like the softness the mounds of grass give the stark fence, plus mud puddles never looked so good till photographed by you Jientje!

Melli said...

Puddles puddles and MORE puddles! What I'd GIVE for a puddle right now!

I love the reflection of your friend in the puddle! But then it brought to mind a question... when you go on these photo walks as a class... is everyone spotting different things to photograph? Or does one say "oh! look what SHE's photographing! THAT looks neat - let me go photograph it TOO!" So that everyone ends up with pretty much the same stuff? How does it go Jientje?

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Awesome set. I love the last shot.

The Retired One said...

Loved that barbed wire!!

Cassandra Kinaviaq Rae said...

Every photo is wonderful! Your photos tell complete stores. I especially love the one with the mane snarl on the barbed-wire fence.

Well about photo walks, of course you can learn from each other, but then you would only be copying one another, and that's SO not what I want. Everybody did his own thing last Saturday. And I was the one WAY BEHIND all the rest! I'm really looking forward to see everybody else's pictures, it can be amazing how different they all are. We will see them all in tonight's lesson!
@ Secret Mom Thoughts: Thanks! One of my favorites too!
@ The Retired One : I have this thing for barbed wire, I don't know where it comes from!
@ Cassandra Rae : A bit gloomy though?
@ merrymishaps: Yup! I saved it for last!
@ quilly : Yes, I like it too, even if I'm not so sure about it.
@ frog ponds rock: IU'm glad you enjoyed them Kim.
@ lisaschaos : Fences, barbed wires, puddles, all favorites of mine to photograph!
