Brussels


Brussels

We visited Brussels a couple of weeks before Christmas. Travelling by Eurostar is very easy from Leicester since the Leicester to London train goes into Saint Pancras station. We just had to change platforms to get the train to Brussels.

In the Grote Markt, there was a Son et Lumiere show every evening. This was mostly automated but on Saturday night there was a live show. This photograph was taken during the performance. Most of the show took place on the balcony of the Hotel de Ville. Towards the end of the show, there was a coup de theatre when this stage rose from the square with the singer on top. He threw confetti in the air creating the effect seen in the photograph.

There are other Son et Lumiere photographs on my Flickr photostream.
