If you understand the sanctity of travel, Brussels must be one of your hotspot destinations. Queued alongside travel hotbeds like Shanghai and Dubai, it flies under the radar as monotone with nothing much to offer.
However, Brussels Belgium’s capital city is a fascinating city toned with hip showmanship architectural facades. The cityscape is a range of historic architecture, classic museums, beautiful parks to rundown quirky streets that speak of nothing but a rich multi-culture. Strewn with lively bistros and fine-dine restaurants, the oldies tavern-like brown cafes and the chocolate mellows it down.
Pack a Bag
For an ultimate experience in Brussels, just pack a bag and contact a local photographer who can help you comb the city while capturing moments at the most bespoke spots. Recently, Sara a solo traveler passionate about street photography contacted us for a photo shoot in Brussels. For Sara, it was just a short visit but for us, it was a precious opportunity to capture her experience in the Art Nouveau mausoleum. One of our incredibly talented photographer Vincent was more than thrilled to work with her.
As a photographer, Vincent did not only ensure that Sara had her photos captured in the city’s classical places, but he also made sure they embodied the natural yet casual air of street photography.
The Grand Place
This is Brussel’s most popular tourist attraction which lies in the medieval core of the city and includes the Town Hall and Bread House. Millions of travelers have had magical moments captured around this unforgettable ensemble. The local photographer made sure that Sara wouldn’t miss out on its charm. He picked spots that depicted the bashing exhibitionist allure of the Palace.
Sometimes the charming antique guildhalls provided a backdrop whilst other times, they majestically faded in the background. Vincent managed to capture some great photos highlighting some of the Palace’s design. Most of the spots embodied street photography in the sense that they were taken in candid places with an active background.
Galeries Royale Saint-Hubert
A unique shopping arcade that offers a unique shopping experience multifaceted with house cafes, restaurants and chocolate shops. Brussels is known for chocolates and beers. The Tavern du Passage famously known for a wide variety of seafood and Neuhaus for its chocolate but which better way to capture this than along the Royale. And the waffles are just heaven!
The photographer carefully picked the spots outlying what the Royale is all about. From the arcade, the house cafes and down to the chocolate shops. The street theme was maintained through the shoot, as Vincent captured her shopping experience while Sara playfully posed.
Rue des Bouchers
Just across the Galeries Royale Saint-Hubert is the unique narrow alley colored with pavement tables,
pyramids of lemons and seafood displays of fish and crustaceans. Approximately, there are up to a hundred restaurants along the street. The alley is pedestrianized passageway that is both photogenic and fun to walk through as it is pretty historic since its dates back to the middle ages. Sometimes it is referred to as the Belly of Brussels. The pavement-tables can give a good solid background and the street, a walk down memory lane. The local photographer picked just the right spots that captured just the right amount of history, street and the sunshine.
