Namur, Belgium

united_kingdomThis weekend I’ve visited Namur, a francophone Belgian city. It was sunny in the morning, but shortly after the typical Belgian clouds covered the sky. I don’t like to shoot in this kind of weather because the photos tend to look dark, gray and sad, but in some of the photos the clouds give a pinch of drama, so it’s not that bad after all.

The city of Namur is crossed by two rivers (Sambre and Meuse) with houses along them. On the hill there is The Citadel with a free entrance and from where you can see the whole city.

 romania_flagWeekendul acesta am fost prin Namur , un oras in partea francofona a Belgiei. Am prins vreo jumatate de ora de soare, dar apoi cerul s-a inorat si pozele sunt gri si nefericite. Dar au si norii farmecul lor in poze, dau un plus de dramatism.

Orasul e strabatut de doua rauri (Sambre si Meuse), cu case de-a lungul raurilor si o citadela unde intrarea e gratis si se vede orasul de sus.

Felicien Rops Museum

united_kingdomFelicien Rops is a Belgian artist and in this museum in Namur you can find his work, mostly drawings based on sex, death and satanic images. The museum is not creepy. On the contrary, it can be funny and you might find yourself giggling a lot 😀

romania_flagFelicien Rops e un artist Belgian, multe din lucrarile sale avand ca tema principala sexul, moartea si imagini satanice. Dar nu e nimic de speriat, ba din contra: lucrarile sunt haioase si am vazut grupuri de 50 -60-70 de ani hlizindu-se in fata schitelor in creion. 😀
