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

Monthly Theme: the Marina

We're finally getting a little bit of Winter here in Belgium. It's very cold and it snowed yesterday.
I know readers in Canada (and other countries with a cold climate) will probably laugh out loud when they see the amount of snow we had. I know, it's just a little sprinkling, a transparent layer, and it would have melted in two hours had it not been so cold. I went down to the marina this morning to take some pictures to use for my monthly theme and my fingers nearly froze off! My fingers were so numb I could not even push the shutter anymore!

View from the bridge

Even the seagulls look like they're cold!

I was busy taking pictures when suddenly this lady walked up from behind me. "This is going to be perfect for my monthly theme" I thought instantly, and quickly pushed the shutter.
So there ... my photo of the day, my new entry for Project 366 # 31

These photos were taken with my bridge camera, the Canon SX1 IS.
I'm planning on making this a monthly theme. I know it's not February yet, but hey... You can see my first post here.

Excellent photos - but I have a hard time adjusting my brain to see pleasure craft, in the water, and snow on the ground. And yes - the last one is the Keeper.

Very nice. I like the nice sprinkling of white in the photos.

Everything looks like it is sprinkled with sugar. Very pretty.

Such a pretty place and I have to admit that it does look cold!

I can only say, we are sitting in the same boat, lol !
Today - 3° and for tomorrow - 9°C, I hope they are wrong !

I'm envious of the sprinkling of snow. We've barely had any and today and yesterday it was 60 degrees. :)
I've seen a couple of blogs where people post a pic of the same spot on a certain day of the month so I think your monthly theme is a good idea. Love the bright red coat. She's more ambitious than I would be taking a baby for stroll in the weather. :)
