Week 26: BXL evening

Filed under: — Administrator @ 07:14

My highlight of the week was a weekend spent in Brussels, attending a dinner given by Viewfinders, the English-language photography club of which I have been a member since some time in the 1990s.

But first, a couple of images from Almere, the town where I live. I was out shopping in the town centre when one of our frequent downpours hit. The Dutch are always prepared for rain…

The remaining pictures are from that evening in Brussels. We had dinner at a restaurant on Place Ste-Catherine, one of the nicest neighbourhoods in downtown Brussels, and then moved on to the nearby Monk bar for additional imbibing.
