Brussels, I love a busy street corner

Brussels,  I love a busy street corner

 

It was a hot day, people in their separate worlds, hustle and bustle , and the feeling is good.

Brussels La Grand-Place

When I visit somewhere, of course I see the sights but never waste time trying to capture postcard views. Here I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this event that I hadn’t a clue about. I found  the characters in the car a bit frightening if I am honest but as it was a very public event I felt entitled to capture a different view of La Grand-Place event though it meant getting up close and personal with a very large size camera.

 

While I am at it , please check out  Sander de Wilde’s work at http://sanderdewilde.wordpress.com/. Dutch photographer based in Brussels : explore his excellent personal work; lots to see and be moved by. I know I am.

Street photography, sometimes it is simply the beauty of someone passing by you, the mood, the colours bouncing off each other, sun and shadows, buildings… There’s something about Brussels that I find refreshingly vibrant although I’ve only passed through it a couple of times.
