Belgium - Brussels by lux69aeterna Belgium - Brussels by lux69aeterna
The Grand Place or Grote Markt in the historic center of Brussels, Belgium. Brussels' magnificent central square, Grand Place, tops every newcomer's itinerary. It boasts the country's finest baroque guildhalls, the beautiful Hotel de ville (building on the left), museums, pavement cafes, chocolate shops and intimate cellar restaurants. Hidden at the very core of the old town, it's revealed as you enter from narrow side allays - a discreet positioning that adds charm. The Grand Place takes on different auras depending on the time of day and the season. In the morning the superb guildhalls at the bottom end glint in the sun, at dusk the azure sky makes a vivid backdrop to the illuminated buildings. For three days in August, a carpet of flowers covers the whole square.

Nikon D80, Tokina 12-24mm, B + W UV filter, tripod.

Great shot of a beautiful city. Those buildings are amazing and you captured them perfectly.

So tragic what has happened there, it really is unbelievable how frequent these terrorist attacks are becoming. Too many innocent people dying for no reason at all.. I will never understood what kind of human beings can do such things.

Thank you a lot for your kind words Harvy... I live with the hope they can arrest a lot of them so there can be some peace... I'm in Ecuador but i read the news a lot and they arrest people every day... So we'll see :)

No problem

Yeah they are likely to be arrested, but there is just no punishment that can do enough justice for what these 'people' have done.

Hopefully they can catch the terrorist that is on the run... Even if this might bring another attack, it's important to catch him alive...
