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

Midweek Blues, At the Photographer’s


mwb 1575


Every detail had to be just right before the photographer could make a picture.
Taking a picture used to involve a lot more work than it does now in this digital era!



Play along with Midweek Blues. Post a picture with a little or a lot of blue in it and join the fun at the Dusty Cellar.

How do you manage to step back in time like that? :) You visit the most fascinating places.

Kunt ge u eigenlijk niet meer voorstellen hé. Een filmrolleke lijkt al zover weg. :-)

I can imagine all the work they had to go through. Digital cameras make things easier for a lot of us.

what a wonderful picture! a digital picture taken of an old set up picture! great job! really puts it all in perspective on how easy we have it. I have tons of sky-blue pictures, but I think everyone does! so it wouldn't be too interesting..

I agree with Carletta - "you didn't get many chances to get it right" .. and they never smiled in the olden days .. all upright and stiff!
Lovely to catch up with your photos! Those giant puppets and their story is wonderful!
Such a special hubby you have too, writing little notes for you :)
Interesting Scottish Festival! Would love to do a Scotland trip .. maybe one day!
