[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mechelen is a small village in the deep south of Dutch Limburg. It shares its name with a historical city in Belgium, or Flanders, well...it's in the province of Antwerp, which is the central region of the old Duchy of Brabant really.

This was a bit of a surprise for us.

Though it shares its name with this more familiar town in Belgium, it doesn't have many things in common with it. But there is a bar that sells the Belgian Mechelen's beer.

This was another surprise for us.


This picture shows a detail of a local house, not a particularly special house, but I like its geometrical simplicity and the way things come in pairs.

Mirror vision...

Hello Benny,
I think someone with raised eyebrows and a funny hat is watching me. Simple but interesting composition with fine lines and details and a great light.

Hello Benny,

You spotted something which I often see, faces in buildings!
Here, we have a very happy building with raised eyebrows and eyes arched with humour.
Its a very well composed and clear shot.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

To me a very graphical photo, a bit of minimalism the quality of a poster, the color palette is reduced to two colors, very well observed
regards Ryszard

Good morning Benny,
Funny detail, a well observed upper house wall. Good shot!


Hi Benny
This dead straight on shot looks so pristine depicting all those shapes and extremely strong in graphic elements - resemblance of sleeeeepy eyes!!

You have a great contrast to blue sky and your crisp detailing is applauded. A very accomplished shot with stylish result!
Best regards

Hallo Benny,

Minimalistisch maar een kwaliteits foto.
De witte gevel en de twee zwarte ogen (raampjes )en de donkere schoorsteen, is een heerlijk contrast.
Dit alles tegen een mooie heldere hemel.
Mooi foto werk, bedankt.

Prettig weekend,

Hello Benny, I was in Mechelen in Belgium but not in this Dutch village. Very simple composition but with these strange small windows and strong colours - very attractive. Marvelous blue sky.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Hallo Benny,
Ik had nog nooit van het Nederlandse Mechelen gehoord.
Bij het zien van dit beeld denk ik aan twee verschillende dingen. Het doet me enerzijds denken aan de ramen in de vorm van ogen die we in bepaalde centraal Europese landen en heel veel in Roemenië zien en anderzijds aan de ogen aan de buitenzijde van boeddhistische tempels zoals in Nepal.
Een heel aantrekkelijke compositie van geometrische vormen.
Prettig weekend, Paul

Hello Benny My first impression was for a double bread oven masterly captured with fine details in highlights. Unusual design, for shure, and pleasing visual balance. Cheers
