An Evening Chat in Ghent

One of the highlights of our trip to Europe for me was an evening/night walk through the city of Ghent in Belgium. I have a plethora of photos from that evening that I’ll be editing over the course of time.

The walk through the city at night was uncomfortable at times because the kids were quite tired and we were slightly nervous about having them around so many intoxicated folks. However, people were still polite and the city at night was incredible! It was photographic heaven.

I made this photo in the Graslei/Korenlei area of the city shooting across the Leie towards the Sint-Michielskerk Cathedral (photo location). As this area is very popular and busy we endeavored to move through it relatively quickly. However, we still took some time to admire this area of the city under bright lights. It was very satisfying to find this group of three people sitting near the canal and conversing on a nice evening. I call this photo “An Evening Chat in Ghent.”
