This is my seventh participation in the “photo of the month” challenge. Since this is a French-speaking group, I put the translation below.

Bay Bridge by night (and some…)

Last weekend, I finally went to the Bay Bridge at night to check out the Bay Lights installation. This little night adventure allowed me to realize I probably need to buy a new tripod that will be able to hold my D7000 and the 28-300 lens that is attached to it. Ha!

Oakland’s Produce and Waterfront District

I don’t even know if the Produce and Waterfront District is actually a thing. I looked it up on a real estate website. I guess those websites get it wrong a lot when it comes to naming neighborhoods, but I’m just going to have to trust them for now. Continue reading “Oakland’s Produce and Waterfront District”

San Francisco by the docks

Well. I don’t really know how to start. I was supposed to get on a plane back to my country (Belgium) this morning… but obviously didn’t since I’m writing this. My girlfriend proposed to me about 10 days ago so we are going to get married. Continue reading “San Francisco by the docks”

Brussels: Tour Japonnaise

I wish I’d taken pictures of it during the day… and I did when I visited the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken. You’ll find the photo here. But here, you’ll see photo of this rather unusual landmark taken at sunset. Continue reading “Brussels: Tour Japonnaise”

Halloween: oranges vs. pumpkins

All right! I know I’m not in the habit of posting two sets of pictures a day, I felt like I need to make an exception. Being from Belgium and being part of that older generation, I never really celebrated Halloween as a kid. Continue reading “Halloween: oranges vs. pumpkins”

La photo entre amis: made in China

La photo entre amis is a small Facebook photo group that a friend and I just started. Each one of us gets his/her turn to pick a theme. The theme being treated here is: made in China. Continue reading “La photo entre amis: made in China”

Halloween: (creepy) dolls

Some might say they are not that creepy. Well, yeah. That’s right. They are regular dolls. But to me, there is something about them that feels a little strange and disturbing when they are shot at a certain angle or even just in black and white. Continue reading “Halloween: (creepy) dolls”
