Cloth Hall - Ypres, Belgium | Forgotten Postcard

Cloth Hall – Ypres, Belgium | Forgotten Postcard

The Cloth Hall (or Lakenhal in Dutch) in Ypres Belgium was a warehouse for the prosperous cloth industry during the Middle Ages. These days, it is the home of the In Flanders Fields WWI Museum.

Brussels Christmas Market Photo Gallery

Brussels Christmas Market Photo Gallery

One of my favourite things about the Christmas holidays in Brussels, Belgium is the Christmas Market. Photographing the market at night is a special treat. The market stalls are lit with a warm glow. People bustle by. The cold winter air keeps folks bundled up and cheeks rosy. For added holiday drama, the Electrabel Nights Lightshow in … more

Ghent, Belgium - Forgotten Postcard

Ghent, Belgium – Forgotten Postcard

The historic waterfront of Ghent, Belgium is one of Flanders’ loveliest waterways. This street, known as De Graslei, borders the Leie River and is a popular spot on a sunny day. The gabled guildhalls seen here portray a typical Flemish style of architecture.  The symmetrical nature of these beautiful buildings inspired this latest work of digital art. For many more … more

Atomium, Brussels, Belgium – Forgotten Postcard
