Some images of Brussels by day and by night.

Next to the cathedral pond, some awning covered eateries.

Numerous city landmarks are illuminated during tourist season, adding to the pleasure of a  night time walk.

Brussels was the home of Hergé (1907-1983), creator of Tintin, one of the most famous characters in 20th century European comic art.  Numerous wall murals reflect a graphic art tradition.

Normal scale postering in the bottom corner of the above mural gives some idea of the mural’s scale.

In this clever mural, the imaginary overlaps with the actual.

While in Brussels, I stayed in a hostel.  The above image taken from a window display shows the character of the neighbourhood where the hostel was located.
