Young family

Young family

We went to have a drink in the park after work because it was such nice warm weather. The park is always the perfect place to take some shots and I quite liked this one of this young family.

I am so happy that we have some daylight again after work to take shots!


Spring in the park

Spring in the park

We are having a lovely lazy day today. We went to another park to enjoy the sun. Like yesterday loads of people were out and about in the park enjoying the lovely weather.


Moonlight through the trees

Moonlight through the trees

My new tripod arrived yesterday, so we took it with us today on our evening stroll to try it. I am quite happy with how the pictures we took along the way turned out. The lighting and atmosphere in this one appealed to me the most, so this is the post of the day! :)


Freakish mushrooms

Freakish mushrooms

Luckily it did not rain as much today as the last couple of days! It looks like these mushrooms have been quite affected by the amount of rain. Makes them look quite freakish!


Overlooking Brussels…

Overlooking Brussels...

This is one of our favourite spots to visit from time to time. From the triumphal arch in the Parc du Cinquantenaire/Jubelpark you have a great view of the park as well as the rest of Brussels. It was a pity that there were so many clouds today, but the autumnal colours made up for it! :)


Heading for home

Clouds Clouds

“Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.”

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


End of the Summer?

Brussels Parc du Cinquantenaire Jubelpark Sun chairs End of the Summer?

Is the Summer almost over? Judging by the weather it really looks like it!

However, in the Parc du Cinquantenaire (Jubelpark) they don’t seem to think so. They still put out the foldable sun chairs! :)

During the Summer the park rangers put out these chairs from 10 in the morning to 8 o’clock at night, so people can enjoy them for free. This project aims to contribute to the nice atmosphere of the parks of Brussels and to celebrate the European year of biodiversity. The chairs are decorated by Brussels’ graffiti artist Bonom.

Let’s hope we still get some nice weather, so we can enjoy them some more! :)
