Belgium - Brussels by lux69aeterna Belgium - Brussels by lux69aeterna
The Grand Place or Grote Markt in the historic center of Brussels, Belgium. Read further for some infomation, taken from a Lonely Planet guide.

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.

I was searching for inspiration today and that usually gets me looking at cityscapes and sights from many cities - and then I ran into your gallery. I really like your photos. They seem to capture a bit of that I-don't-know-what that forms the spirit of the place.

I can really dream myself in Brussels now, for example.

Thank you a lot miss :) And looking for what kind of inspiration exactly?

You can honestly dream about the Brussels' Grand Place... it is really one of the most beautiful squares in the world... For me it competes with the one in Cuzco, Peru...

You can call me Sarshi, everybody else around here does :)

Well, actually, nothing cityscape related. I'm a writer, but I haven't been writing very much (or very well) lately and cityscapes and certain songs put me in that dreamy, imaginative mood where I feel I can really touch a story, feel it, get into it. Your photos make me wish and dream and feel - I can go places from there.
