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

Weekend Reflection, Like a Painting …



I’m always looking for reflections everywhere I go. There for I love the use of glass in contemporary architecture. On my latest photo walk in Antwerp this sight drew my attention. I like how the blue sky and the buildings across the street mirror some color and different styles of architecture on the modern glass façade of our City Theatre.  


More Weekend Reflections at James’ Newton Area Photo.

Wonderful reflections in the buildings.

I like this photo like I like many of your photos, but this one leads towards this thought. There is a style of painting called neorealism in which the artist tries to capture the feel of a scene that includes glass and chrome, such as an old drug store in America, or a diner made of stainless steel and glass. The old building reflected in the glass of the more modern building for me has more than artist value, but holds significance for me as our history, our past, is reflected in our contemporary life.

Yes, these modern buildings are GOOD for that! Mirrors, mirrors, everywhere! :)

That really is an excellent reflection. The old reflected in the new. I'm the same way always looking for reflections.

Did you get the email that I sent?

This is a fantastic reflection shot. I love the old architecture, and how perfect that the modern building is reflecting it. And how nice to sit and relax and take in these views! Kathy
