Details

Update:
Already more than 50 Happy Shutterconts singed up. We are going to beat or record!

This time, we will have something new: Upon arrival at the meetup location, ask your organiser for the secret code. You will need it later.

Our walk will be a little bit shorter than previously announced (around 4 km).

We will roughly take the same route as described by Oliver here: http://www.gpsmycity.com/tours/art-nouveau-on-the-go-1015.htm (http://www.gpsmycity.com/tours/art-nouveau-on-the-go-1015.html)l (the app seems to be broken on the iPhone?) to see some very interesting parts of town, have great opportunities to take nice pictures.

And - again, the very balanced mix of creativities and skill levels! Be ready to ask questions and provide answers and have a great afternoon out.

After the walk, we may go for a snack and/or drink to share some final thoughts.

Weather:

after some rain and thunderstorms on Friday and probably Saturday, Sunday will be overcast with sunny spells. No hard shadows ;-)

Our Plan

We will have an approx 6 km walk during which we will see some of the most famous Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels and - as usual - have to great opportunity for photography related chats.

Hint: it's not a bad idea to carry the manual of your camera if you are going to ask some specific questions

Is this meetup for you?

This meetup will be as nice, entertaining and educating as all out other meetup so far but to avoid any disappointments you should notice that we will not be able to visit any of the buildings from inside as part of this meetup.

If you want to see more

if you want to see the building from inside, you have to get tickets ( one weekend 20€ / four weekends 55€) from the organisation which is responsible for Biennale Art Nouveau Event in Brussels and pre-register for the visits (Photoresk has no affiliation with them) and create your own itinerary.

Finally: a little warning COPYRIGHT

the copyright rules are quite different in different (even EU) countries. Belgium has become famous for the restrictive application of architects rights. I am not going to judge here if individuals who are shaping our living environment have the right to protect elements which are in public sight as their property but I suggest everybody to have a look at the Atomium web-site since the same applies to many buildings in Belgium.

However, this should not stop you from taking pictures - but you should be aware and consider what you will do with the photos later on
