Gisteren fotograferen. Morgen exposeren. Hoe oud nieuw kan worden.


Today I walked through the train station “Bruxelles Midi” on my way to work, as usual. But today I had my camera with me to feed my blog and I was lucky. On the picture you see a happy family sitting with a horse dressed up like a zebra. The two little girls were going to camp, but the horse will stay in the same place. It used to be part of the Horseparade, an exposition on tour that travelled around Belgium to celebrate our 175th anniversary in 2006. All the pieces of art were sold. In 2003 there was a similar expo with painted cows. Sometimes you can see one of these cows standing in the street. You can see one in front of a house in the Jan Van Rijswijcklaan in Antwerp, nearby the cultural centre De Singel. I will make a snapshot when I pass by with my camera and post the picture. I will keep you updated about more (free) art in Belgium!

  1. Deze dinsdag ook door het station van Zuid geweest. Fantastisch station, met prachtige architectuur. Helaas is er ook veel politie aanwezig, dus wil je foto’s schieten op statief is het bijna onmogelijk dat onopgemerkt te doen.

    Wel een erg mooie foto!

    Hi Tim!

    Thanks for the compliment. I reply in English because I want to keep the blog understandable for foreigners. It is true, there are a lot of police offers walking around and the camera’s keep an eye on every corner of the train station. The trick is to behave as a tourist, so leave out the big zoom lens. They once kicked me out while I was using one of these inside the station. Stick to smaller lenses or a compact camera. Keep a stable hand and turn up the sensitivity of your camera. Good to know, a research centre in South-Korea developed a chip which is 2000 times more sensitive than the one in current camera’s! So you can also wait till these new camera’s are on the market 😉
