Trams at Place Royale in Brussels.

Using my first Lumix LX7, I made this series of photos of the route 93 trams passing Place Royale in Brussels, Belgium on August 18, 2014.

It was dusk and the light was fading rapidly while taking on that royal blue hue that last for just a few minutes.

Effectively making photos at dusk is always a challenge. I had the camera set to ‘A’ mode (Aperture Priority).

Rental Tram Hoboken? It’s not what you think!

In February 1999, I made a day trip from Brussels to Antwerp, Belgium.

While in Antwerp, I took the number 2 tram to its terminus at Hoboken.

You mean there’s another Hoboken Terminal? In a manner of speaking, yes. But no copper clad Bush train sheds at this one.

When I saw this PCC departing for central Antwerp, I was amused by the National Car Rental advertisement at the back of the car. That same day I expose a view of a similar tram advertising ‘Diesel’ apparel.

Exposed on Fujichrome Sensia II (100 ISO) with an Nikon N90S probably fitted with a 80-200 Nikon zoom.

Brussels Trams at Schaarbeek: 1999 and 2017.

Here are two views made at the tram terminal in Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek in Brussels. The top was exposed on Fujichrome with my Nikon N90S in 1999, the bottom using a Lumix LX7 in April 2017.

The building in the background is the old SNCB railway station house, now part of the Train World railway museum complex.
