[ mort subite, bruxelles, belgique - 14. 15. 16. avril 2011 - gf1 with 20mm | 1:1.7 ]
A classic for everyone who is visiting Brussels.
Specialties : gueuze, lambik, faro, and many other superb beers.
Good choice of snacks, also.
Were you there @ 0700Hr in the morning ? The place is usually very crowded. But you seem to have been there when it was almost empty.
Have a nice day,

The black and white looks so… silent (in the meaning like silent movies or dramatic scenes).
But loved the chairs. Even though there's nobody sitting, it felt like the place is very busy and moving.
Nice collection. Captures a great feel of the place.
I especially love the double portrait framed through the beer taps.
Thank you for all the "Thanks" and the individual feedback.
Yes it's a special place - it's not so touristic as it seems... it's a real traditional place with an unique story behind this more or less morbide name.
I like the comparsion with a silent movie - and it was not early in the morning... on every of the three days of my stay in Brussels I was there (at different day times) and enjoyed the different beers and the different moods in this old style ale-house.
Cheers and thank you !
[ PS: Low light shooting is such a pleasure with the Lumix 20mm | 1.7 lens ]
I had to go back to see the image/portraits between the taps....very well done and I do sometimes feel that B&W is more dramatic than the actual colour, sorts of dating the place and time. Of course, I am old fashioned!
nope . . . what you see are two of the many chairs :smile:
