Start to finish, this post was an exercise in speed, largely with my upcoming RTW trip* in mind. The working plan will be to try and post something daily, which I know will oftentimes mean a very quick turnaround. Right now my computer is stuffed to the gills with gigabytes of photos and video from the spring and summer months to sort through and organize. So, to kill two birds with one stone, I decided a little practice in speed was in order that would also help de-clutter my hard drive.
These were part of a batch of 50 or so shots I snapped during an hour-long early afternoon stroll in Brussels in early September. I gave myself 30 minutes in all to first whittle those down to 11, do some very quick post-processing and publish this post. The only ‘theme’ I was trying to stick to was to include photos that weren’t typically Brussels-esque. I even included a self-portrait with latex chaps.
Why 11? Because this experiment called for more than 10, and less than a dozen.

I’ve visited the Belgian capital regularly for most of the past decade. For more pics check out my Brussels set on Flickr.
