Belgium Film Diary - Part One (in the train & arriving in Leuven)

Hello you! :)
I know some of you have waited for the pictures
from our Belgium trip and were curious on how my view
on this country will be. But for this trip I decided
to mostly shoot on film and film some precious moments for a 
travel diary with my digital camera so I had to
wait for the pictures to get developed. 

But here they come. 

After many hours of changing trains
we sat in our final train that had these beautiful
yellow curtains and magical light.

Look at this beautiful rhododendron! It was blooming every where when we arrived
and I was so surprised, because in Germany I haven't seen even one blooming one
by the time we left.

We spend our first afternoon & evening in Leuven where we stayed
at our friends Ewa and Simon's home. I saw so
many beautiful light situations in this house. Like this one
where golden light united with the dark furniture. 

After a delicious pasta with vegetable sauce Simon made 
and a long chat about what happened in each others life's 
Ewa told me about the lovely botanical garden we have
to go to. Since it was closing soon I jumped on the porter of
Florians bike and we soon arrived in a green paradise.

I saw this men enjoying a book right next to the green house
in the shade of a bush
and thought what a perfect spot to dive into a story.

Stay tuned for more Belgium photos, there is more to come! :)

And all the meadows will be dry, the flowers will wither, but you will stay. (Part One)

The Beauty of Everyday Paths

There is this little path on our way to the grocery store.
In late summer it's the place where juicy blackberries grow,
in winter it becomes icy and an adventure to cross.
Most people won't call it special, to me it is.
Surrounded by ugly buildings and cars, right next to
a bridge.
But it's a little hidden and secret, there are all kinds of wild flowers growing,
a dove family is crossing the sky above me now and then, a couple
of birches have their home there
and the shadows of the grass create the most beautiful shadow play
on the ground. 
It's a tiny corner of nature in our city
that blooms in yellow this Spring.
And I'm right there to feel it all.

Ewa's corner


When we visited Belgium we were kindly invited by our friends
to stay in their lovely home in Leuven. 
I took the chance to capture some moments of Ewa 
in the Botanical Garden and in her little room.
I was so inspired by the houses of Belgium and especially the
one we spend our time with Ewa and Simon in. 
The old, dark furniture looked magical with
the tiny bit of warm light that was reaching the window and
I felt that this is the right place for her. This is where she belongs.
For now.
