Last weekend our photo group was in Brussels for a photo-walk and I decided to only take my Leica M 246 Monochrome with me. And we had an enjoyable time. Never been to Brussels for a city-trip before, although it is only a two hours drive from Düsseldorf.
Spots for streetphotography in Bruxelles
Where have we been? We had a 16 km trip through central Brussels, which took us 6 hours. Besides the city centre we were in Molenbeek, Red Light district at Bruxelles-North station, Stalingrad, Sablon and some more places. In the evening we went to the Kirmes and the next day we were at the area around Stalingrad including Saint-Géry.
On the first day until the afternoon I had my Leica M246 Monochrome with me with the 35 mm Summilux asph. FLE. The rest of the trip it was the same camera with the Noctilux 50mm 1.0.
I made my mind up not to to take the SL with me as well. Maybe in retrospect this was a wrong decision, as Bruxelles has a lot of colorful photo motives. Not at least the paintings on the houses and the houses itself.
But nevertheless, this is, what I saw in Bruxelles in one and a half day – in black and white.
Thanks to Patrick de Baene for a great tour in Bruxelles city centre. My feet are still aching 😀
