Maastricht 🇳🇱

Maastricht is located on both sides of the Meuse, at the point where the Jeker joins it. Mount Saint Peter is largely situated within the city's municipal borders.

A quick Sunday morning walk through the city of Maastricht, with the Helpoort flipping the bird on me.

Charleroi 🇧🇪 & Vive la Fête

Charleroi is a city and a municipality of Wallonia, located in the province of Hainaut, Belgium. The inhabitants are called Carolorégiens or simply Carolos.

For many years now, Vive la Fête has ensured an exciting musical party on stage. Since 1997, the Belgian band of Danny Mommens (ex-bass player of dEUS) and Els Pynoo has been bringing danceable electro-rock, with a touch of kitsch and some new wave and French chanson lurking in the background.

Combining a photography walk in the grungy city of Charleroi with a great concert by Vive la Fête!

Hasselt 🇧🇪

Hasselt is a Belgian city and municipality, and capital and largest city of the province of Limburg in the Flemish Region of Belgium. The Hasselt municipality includes the original city of Hasselt, plus the old communes of Sint-Lambrechts-Herk, Wimmertingen, Kermt, Spalbeek, Kuringen, Stokrooie, Stevoort and Runkst, as well as the hamlets and parishes of Kiewit, Godsheide and Rapertingen.

Just a quick little trip to Hasselt, where I stumbled upon a carnival parade. This time with some gear I don’t use so often: the 10-year-old X-E2 paired with the razor-sharp XF 50mm f/2, which is a narrow 75mm full-frame equivalent field of view.
