This is not a bridge

Or how to look differently for better photography.


Tour & Taxis

It’s the inside of the Tour & Taxis building in Brussels, Belgium. It used to be a central depot for transit goods in the early 20th century. Now it’s been renovated rather beautifully and houses several museums, pubs and stylish stores. I took more than this one picture but I’m kinda picky on what I post.

I particularly liked this composition because of the straight jagged lines combined with the overall high contrast. Rather unsettling – it could have been a prison – while also having a certain modern appeal.

Gray silver

It’s been a while since I posted a picture here. But, if nothing is worth posting I rather keep quiet. Must explain why I don’t have Facebook 🙂

I noticed this construction during a walk in suburban Antwerp. I particularly liked the gray-silver colors and reflections on the floor. I converted it to black & white to remove the distraction from the green trees in the background.

Photographic edits: black & white conversion.
