Bruges in Photographs. Day and Night

It was our first experience of living in Bruges, Belgium, and our first night photo session with tripod.

Later, while checking our photograps, we found that some photos turned out to be paired: day and night.

An illumination of the buildings switched off after this shot. As if somebody on Heaven decided, “Enough! Sleep!” and turned off electricity. He left only night-light, the moon.

Channels and swans. People call Bruges “North Venice.” Maybe, but there are less channels here and all the town is well-kept, whitewashed and cleaned in contrast to littered decaying and falling apart Venice.

This is one of the most beautiful streets-channels of Bruges.

A very nice square with Basilica of the Holy Blood. Here, you can meet little squares at every step.

We thank this was a church. No, it was a restaurant. πŸ™‚

This is a modern building, but it looks like it is about 300 years old.

    Amazing place. But so much water. I think the buildings have to be damp inside. Beautiful architecture though.

    Very well captured. Really like the way you have given the day and night photos of the same building. We’ve been to Bruges and it felt like we were on a memory rewind. I’m yet to get my hands right on night shots. Is tripod the only secret? No aperture changes?

    Thanks so much for stopping by! I love this, I’ve always wanted to hit the same spots after dark and put my tripod to good use…but it’s hard to coordinate when traveling with other students who don’t care, haha.
    I love the shot with the moon the most πŸ˜€

    Beautiful city. Great captures. I find that night shots are always more dramatic. Although day shots with the right light can be as dramatic too. Thanks for visiting.
