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!

Macro Monday, Ordinary Things …



For this week’s edition of Macro Monday, I thought it would be a nice idea to make close ups of ordinary objects from daily life. So I took my camera to the kitchen to see if I could capture something interesting there, and I must say I had fun doing this!










Macro Monday is hosted by Lisa at Lisa’s Chaos.

Visit my other blog, Heavenin365 for a photo a day with the Canon D40.

Interesting macros. It is amazing how looking at ordinary objects from a different perspective can make them look so much more interesting.

Gattina said...

Would never have thought that such ordinary things can be so beautiful !

Robin said...

Beautiful macros Jientje, and interesting compositions. I especially like the forks and that first shot of the canning jars.

My photography is now available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

Fabulous detail in these macros.

I love these photos! I took pictures of forks and saucepans when I was doing City and Guilds Photography at an evening course - I had fun, too!

So, you make yoghurt, huh? Sid would love you!

Pat said...

Very interesting and really cool shots! There is ALWAYS something to shoot, isn't there? But a wonder in macro!
