About Me

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

Macro Monday, The Train, Up Close and Personal…



This is the last set of pictures of the steam train I photographed a couple of weeks ago. I was really lucky to be able to get so close to it and capture every tiny detail.









Macro Monday is hosted by Lisa at Lisa’s Chaos.
Visit my other blog, Heavenin365 for a photo a day with the Canon D40.

Really nice pictures on the old steam train !
My favorite is the one on the wood door.

Yes, I like these pictures. Old wood, the color green and old trains, what a nice combination.

All very nice close ups. Things to remember especially if you want to make a miniature copy.

Unknown said...

I like seeing the train up close just as much as the full thing. :)

Barbara said...

Great subject for close ups. Great series of captures. Have a super week.
