Belgium Film Diary – Part two ( Antwerp & Gent )

Let’s catch up on my Belgium travel diary. 
I shared some moments from our first day with you here already, but
now I would like to take you right into the beautiful city Antwerp.

We didn’t have so much luck with the weather that day, but after we
ate some delicious things from the Jewish bakery Kleinblatt 
and walked trough the streets
we found shelter in the very lovely and impressive Plantin-Moretus museum

What I loved the most about it was the building itself and
the quiet garden, full of roses that were still covered in raindrops.

The exhibition rooms were mostly so dark that when I saw a little light coming trough
it felt like something so special and warm.
I saw it here too.

We spend so much time there and in the streets before that by the time we went out
most of the stores and museums were closed, so we just walked around and
I found the most pretty closed café arrangement. :)
On the next day we woke up early and went to Gent, where Jolien booked
me for a portrait shoot in the botanical garden. I also captured her together with her lovely Jasper.
They were so kind to give us some company and 
show us around this incredible wonderful city and exhausted
we ended our day in this lovely garden with fresh wind
whirling around us.

Hihi, this donkey was so lovely and funny. This photo made me laugh
so much when I saw it coming from the lab. :)
I took it the morning after our day in Gent that we spent in Leuven
again. We needed some rest and found it there. 

Belgium Film Diary – Part One (in the train & arriving in Leuven)

Hello you! :)
I know some of you have waited for the pictures
from our Belgium trip and were curious on how my view
on this country will be. But for this trip I decided
to mostly shoot on film and film some precious moments for a 
travel diary with my digital camera so I had to
wait for the pictures to get developed. 
But here they come. 

After many hours of changing trains
we sat in our final train that had these beautiful
yellow curtains and magical light.
Look at this beautiful rhododendron! It was blooming every where when we arrived
and I was so surprised, because in Germany I haven’t seen even one blooming one
by the time we left.
We spend our first afternoon & evening in Leuven where we stayed
at our friends Ewa and Simon’s home. I saw so
many beautiful light situations in this house. Like this one
where golden light united with the dark furniture. 

After a delicious pasta with vegetable sauce Simon made 
and a long chat about what happened in each others life’s 
Ewa told me about the lovely botanical garden we have
to go to. Since it was closing soon I jumped on the porter of
Florians bike and we soon arrived in a green paradise.

I saw this men enjoying a book right next to the green house
in the shade of a bush
and thought what a perfect spot to dive into a story.

Stay tuned for more Belgium photos, there is more to come! :)
