Week#26 (2014): A tourist in my own country

So we were happy to get the visit of a couple friends from Michigan last year as I was shooting this roll in my Olympus XA3.  We did in two days some of the typical sightseeing (I guess) that many tourists do when visiting Belgium : the medieval city of Bruges, the Waterloo battle site, and (because we live nearby) the ruins of the old XIIIth century abbey in Villers-la-Ville.

So here are a few non-family shots from that roll.  Bruges was a sunny day and I took a reflected self-portrait in a window.  I was holding my little XA3 the way Vivian Maier did her Rolleiflex.  But no other street photography genre pictures in this post.  And no I’m not comparing myself to her (or only in my dreams).

  1. I’m looking forward to my holiday in Menen in late August. It’s only a few days visiting friends but it will be interesting seeing yet another European country!
