Went down to the river this morning (again) 🙂 and came back with this painterly impressionist landscape scene. Autumn is probably,photographically-speaking my most favourite season.
I asked her what was the first thing that came in to her mind when thinking of Belgium. No, not the Smurfs! or, bizarrely, the very good Belgian beer! but, yes you’ve guessed it, so we just had to go in to quite a few of Brussels’ myriad of chocolate shops to sample their wares :).
View of Brussels from the Atomium. Not the best location if one is suffering from one’s third bout of BPV (Benign Positional Vertigo) in as many years. The only good bit about this thing is “Benign”, I have my own term for it which is best not printed here.
My able assistant otherwise known as “my beloved”, “she who must be obeyed”, “‘er indoors” and other similar terms of endearment had to steady me to prevent me from falling over but I got the shots! 🙂
Inspired by one of my favourite songs of the same name
“Oh Mummy, Daddy, will you sit a while with me
Oh Mummy, Daddy, will you jog my memory
Tell me tall tales of Montego Bay
Table mountain, flying fish, banana spiders, pots of paint
And the sun on the equator
Setting like an ember thrown to deep water
From crimson to black
But coming back
On the horizon”
