I have been many times in the past (and most probably be many times in the future) at the Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium, and always wanted to capture the beauty of this magnificent place in images. My favourite time is dusk, when the square is illuminated both by the setting sun and the artificial lights of the buildings. I tried to capture the essence of the place with multiple image panoramas, which will allow me to to print really large prints, as well as single shot images of specific details.

This is “Dimitrios”, a shipwreck stranded since 1981 on a beach near Gythio n southern Peloponnese, Greece.
Its rather bizarre to see it perched on the beach.
With my black and white interpretation I tried to strengthen the surreal feeling it generates.
Self-portrait in the car under the milky way.
(could not find any interesting foreground element for the milky way, so I thought "why not myself in the car?" - certainly not the most interesting foreground, but that's what I had available at the time :-)
