  1. Hello, I’m one of the long list of people who love your work. I especially like your pix of Brux because I used to live there. (I’m in Lyon now.) And er… not to mince matters I’m looking for a puff for my new novel Living With Spies which is set in Brussels. (Katie Fforde was nice enough to give me one for “I Married a Pirate” which is now selling on Amazon for the princely sum of a penny.) And my pervo cardi-drooling cat Tombo also says “pleeze do it!” Well, he would if he had a brain, which he hasn’t. But that’s another story…

  2. Anne, ik antwoord je in het Nederlands. Je wil dat toch zo graag leren lees ik. Ik woon in Hasselt (BE) en werk in Elsene aan de Kroonlaan. Ik volgde gedurende een vijftal jaren een opleiding fotograaf aan het CVO “De Verdieping” in Heusden-Zolder die ik nu afrond met een eindwerk. Omdat ik meer wilde weten over de plaatsen die ik fotografeerde, zocht ik wat naar informatie over Beurfin in de Hoogstraat. En zo kwam ik terecht op jouw blog. Ik wil je graag feliciteren met je fotografie. Ik heb heel wat inspiratie kunnen vinden in je composities. Dat zal me zeker ten goede komen om de reeks te vervolledigen. Ik ben er nog niet uit wat de titel wordt, maar waarschijnlijk iets zoals “verlaten vitrines” of “over te nemen”.
