A Walk in the 17th Century

In the 1600s Antwerp was one of the richest and most important cities in Europe. Take a walk with me through its streets, seeing just a few of the many reminders of its glorious past.













Finally, I’ve seen many images of Jesus but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one that expresses His love as well as this sculpture of Jesus and his brother John. (Rockoxhuis, Antwerpen)

    I love your photographs. The buildings look lovely with my favorites being the door details. I see some blue sky–that’s a treat in winter!


  2. I think I like the play of the old brick and stone with the light. With all the water around, I’ve found none to photograph. I like pictures of rivers with bridges. I have yet to see a bridge but I see signs for tunnels.

      Hopefully you can find some cool bridges to photograph as you proceed with your trip. Surely there are some interesting ones in the Netherlands. I guess we all have our favorites. I love photographing details of doors, shutters and store windows. Looking forward to seeing what you find!
