On possibly the last nice day of summer, we took our bike to Park Spoor Noord (Antwerp, Belgium), where they have a wonderful very shallow pond for kids to play in.
It is surrounded by bars where you can get a cold beer, a glass of wine or even a sensual mojito cocktail.
Perfect open urban space (on the site of a decommissioned train emplacement) for a relaxed indian summer afternoon.
No place to take the big camera with heavy lenses. I travelled light with Panasonic LX3.
It still allowed me to catch a bit of the action, with mainly two guys playing samba style soccer in the shallow pond.
(I did get quite wet. I kept the camera almost dry.)
There was also live music.
Technical note : most images were shot with the Dynamic B&W mode of the LX3, but they were RAWs so I reprocessed them to dynamic B&W in Lightroom3.
I did however also use the "Grainy Film" scene mode, which defaults to small size JPG at ISO 1600.
This accounts for the strange EXIF on ssome of the images.
