The Old England Building, a beautiful Art Nouveau building that houses the Musée des Instruments de Musique.

We also visited the EU Parliament, elections have only just been held and now begins the next five year term.

The train station was very quite as all Belgian trains had stopped due to a 24 hour strike.

Looking down from the viewers gallery of the debating chamber known as the Hemicycle. Signs at the beginning of the tour said there was no photography allowed, on our visit, there were more cameras and flashes going off than on a busy day at Tokyo Airport.

Flag wavers and fireworks entertained the masses in the Grand Place, as part of a re-enactment of life and celebrations in medieval times.

This was the sight of the Expo held in Brussels in 1958. There is a great ride to the top in a lift that has a glass roof, the photo on the right is a view up the lift shaft as we were coming down!

The largest covered arcade in Europe (bigger than Milan) An amazing building to walk through. We had waffles and coffee while admiring the view.

I have been taking photos for quite a few years, I started out with a Panasonic Lumix. I upgraded to my first SLR, a Sony A350 in 2008. I recently upgraded to the Sony SLT A99-V and I’m hoping that due to my recent retirement, I will get to spend a lot more time taking photos and being involved in all things photographic. I also use a Sony RX100 which is a great little camera that I can easily carry around with me all the time. I live in Adelaide, South Australia and I enjoy traveling both in Australia and internationally.
