Bellemans is located directly across the old prison Pandreitje

Old prison:
The Pandreitje seen from the old prison in the direction of the Rozenhoedkaai.
In the 17th century, the property lost its original destination and became urban prison. In 1861 the prison was completely renovated and an additional floor was built. The prison remained in use until 1989. Also on this building was the name of the street used and 'he was in the Pandreitje' had the meaning that someone was in prison.
From 1992 the building was demolished at the gatehouse and the director's house. The prison building (which dates from the 17th century, and the upper part of the 19th century) was rescued by a protection decision in extremis of demolition. The underlying prison building was demolished.
Also the largely 17th-century buildings located along the Prison Street were demolished.

From 2000 to 2002 a new deployment was made on the grounds of the old prison with subsequent streets

john my friend hello...very interesting not to your shot..like this angle-POV..with these ladies coming your way! tfs dale

Hi John,
That certainly looks like a classic Belgina pub! Very nice old architecture. Good human presence, both of these ladies walking towards you, and people relaxing on the pub terrace.

Hello John,
The buildings are nice and the photo also captures several persons who make the view lively and interesting. I always like this kind of combination of attractive architecture and people. The light and colours are lovely too.
Kind regards,

Dobro vece, gospodine.
Lep pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i arhitektura, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa prolaznicima i posetiocima puba. Lepa arhitektura i detalji na fasadi.
Dobar tekst o tehnici i elementima snimka.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

Good evening, sir.
Beautiful view of the moment, a good text ...
Good work, nice place and the architecture shown, good contrast, nice colors, nice caught moment with passers-by and visitors to the pub. Beautiful architecture and details on the facade.
Good article about the technique and the elements of the image.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

Bonsoir, cher ami John,
Très intéressante histoire liée à l'architecture. C'est toujours passionnant d'apprendre l'historique des bâtiments d'une ville (c'est plus agréable que nos livres d'histoire scolaires).
Belle présentation, toujours soignée.

Hi John,

The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing a double persoective of the architecture of the building. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Salut John,un beau cadeau pour un barman comme moi...eehe..capture excellente de ce pub dans cette architechture tres jolie,interessantes aussi les notes sur cet endroit,bien fait! Belle soiree' et merci,Luciano

Hello John,

You must have been very discrete for no-one in the photograph seems aware that you are taking a photograph of them, making everything seem very natural.
It's a fine sunny aspect , explaining why customers are seated outside enjoying their drinks and food and helping to giving a warm ambience to the scene.
You have captured some interesting details of the building and textural details of the courtyard.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

A good presentation.

Hello John,
What a beautiful day to enjoy some beer outside, in the sun. This is a great view of the pub showing the facade and its better side with rich textures.

Hallo John,
Prachtige foto van deze oude, witgekalkte, bakstenen pub met een heel mooie trapgevel. De dames in de voorgrond en de mensen die van de mooie dag genieten op het terras geven een heel plezierige sfeer aan de foto. Uitstekende verticale compositie ook.

Salut John,
Un bon angle pour cadrer ce bâtiment, la luminosité donne un certain relief à l'image, bien avec ces présences qui animent la présentation.

Good morning John,
I think I was in that pub, if I remember it well!. Great street scene, I like the typical peaceful mood.


Hallo John,
interesting photo and reportage, well done!

Many greetings and have a nice day

Hello John,
A pleasant animated scene captured under a well managed light. I like the diagonal point of view on the pub and the presence of the two girls walking towards the camera. Also, the well rendered textural detail.

Bonjour John

Une très bonne idée de cadrage. J'aime les deux femmes qui se dirigent dans ta direction en même temps que j'aime ce beau petit pub bien invitant. Une belle réunion des deux.

Hello John,

Good sharpness and the red tile roof contrasts well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. The 2 women in the fg animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs!

Hello John,

good image of this pub, I like the composition with the two women walking, the building itself is interesting, well seen,

Best regards,


Hi John
The olde buildings are beautiful with typical architectural style of the area and the catch light really displays the charms of the edifices to the fullest. Fabulous colours that you managed to get most of it portraying uniqueness of this street corner. Wonderful detailed image, Congrats.
Best regards

Good evening John,
A pub right next to a prison, that's nice, wonder what those inmates would think. But finally - there are no prisoners anymore, otherwise they would have extra tortures...
Nice corner picture where two ladies, probably mother and daughter, stride by.
My best regards,

Hello John
The building which houses the pub has a sober beauty and the human presence complement the composition an adds life.

Tfs & best regards

You managed the really difficult light here expertly.
See you!
