Pretty special date today as it is 8/8/8. According to the newspaper lots of people want to marry on this day as well but there is also another cool event if you’re into photography. I’m talking about the ‘24 hours of Flickr’.

I am just back home and trying to fight off this jet lag thing. After being away for 3 weeks in the US it feels good to be back home again. Now trying to sort out the huge backlog of email and startup working again. Before trying to resume regular things here I want to share the pictures that I took in New York City.

I don’t know about you, but I always loved the fact that I can customize my Mac easily. I am talking about changing icons and desktop backgrounds and even themes from time to time with help from ShapeShifter. Today I want to focus on the desktop aspect. There is so much choice out there that it can become a struggle to find high quality looking desktop backgrounds.

Last month a remarkable building was inaugurated by Spain’s Queen Sofia. I’m talking about the new Valencia opera house “Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía”. Its nautical forms suggest its closeness to the sea and its setting in the former bed of the river Turia. The metal roof is like a feather held up by two supports.

On Wednesday we had a few hours left to stroll around Paris a bit. Paris is such a beautiful city. It is a busy city with wide lanes and a lot of cars but the way everything is arranged you still don’t get disturbed by it. Sorry for my UK buddies but I personally find it much nicer then London, hard to explain but it has a sort of a romantic sense to it and we only scratched the surface. In London you get the feeling that traffic gets priority over the pedestrian. It gave me the feeling of being sucked in a hectic pool sometimes. In Paris they spend more thought in making it as comfortable as possible for the pedestrian, like wide sidewalks with trees etc.
So have a look yourself on my Flickr page. Hope they can make you daydream a bit ;-)

Never did a guest post before but that was until I received this from a Dutch friend. Text and picture is from Taco Meeuwsen. Hope this one will put a smile on your face ;-)

I am probably the last of the bunch but my pictures are finally available on Flickr from my trip to London. So if you are interested in a visual journey of my trip please check out my 2 sets:
Luckily I had a little help from my boyfriend to put them online because it is business as usual again here. Hope you like them.

Yesterday we had our first ‘real’ snow of this Winter. Obviously not as much as Dan from Simplebits, but still enough to take a little break from the computer. Only a few minutes away and yet a completely different surrounding, great for uploading the batteries of creativity. Hope you’ll enjoy my Flickr Winter gallery.

Since I began our visual journey of Belgium you’ve seen Knokke and Ghent. Time to move on to other nice places in my country. Yesterday our Toyota dealer (De Prins, Machelen Zulte) set up up a 4x4 event that explores the Flemish Ardennes. 60 Toyota jeeps joined the adventure. Our RAV 4 took us to gorgeous places that are otherwise off-limits. Not that we destroyed nature or so, all off road trips were on paths that are being used by farmers to reach their fields. My responsibilities as a co-pilot were to give directions from the road book. A challenge for me since I sometimes have trouble with left and right (I’m both left and right handed) :-) Between stages there where tests like driving on a course blindfolded.

Yesterday evening Kenneth (our PHP programmer) invited us to go sailing with his boat. We explored the lovely downtown of Ghent. The first two photos are actually a funny story. The shots are taken from the restaurant/bar boat across Decascoop (big cinema complex). We dropped anchor right next to it and ordered some drinks through the window, so it was a kind of a sail-in :-) Kenneth also used the window to go to the restroom as you clearly see on the picts :-p
