    Posted: 06 September 2017 at 20:27
On Sep 6 Neil (owenn01) and Pieter (pegelli) met for a day to visit some exhibits and museums around the battlefield of Waterloo, south of Brussels. Neil had to be in Leuven on business the day before so this was a great opportunity to meet up before Neil had to catch the Chunnel back home.

As with any meeting, we start off with the group shot (which is actually the last shot of the day before we both departed for our way home

p1: In front of the 1815 memorial


fltr: Neil & Pieter

Waterloo is worth a visit now that they've opened a decent visitors centre and put in decent parking.

Before I saw the images I thought you were referring to you and Neil.

Looking forward to following this thread. Did you guys participate in a re-enactment of the battle by chance?

No re-enactment from our side (or any side). It was just a quiet wednesday with very little visitors, which suited us fine for a day of photography.

p6: Eagle



p7: Dutch hat



p8: A staple in the plinth of the Lion



p9: Apocalypse


All A7; 6,7,8 with Rokkor MC 58/1.4, 9 with Nokton 35/1.2 II

Great images so far, Pieter!

I am trying to play catch up at the moment: hopefully something in the next day or so to start my ball rolling as well!

Best regards, Neil.

No hurry Neil, as a pensioner I have a clear advantage in speed of delivery over those who still put in a daily dose of hard work.


p10: Panorama building and the Lion mount

A7 + MC Rokkor 58/1.4


p11: The lion overlooking the battlefield

A6000 + E18-105/4


p12: Modern spiral staircase between the (underground) visitor center and the panorama building

A6000 + E18-105/4


p12: And somehow spiral staircases provide a big attraction to photographers, and Neil is no exception

A7 + Nokton 35/1.2 II


p13: Medicine field kit

A7 + Nokton 35/1.2 II


p14: Doctor's field kit (Imagine what the saw was used for )

A7 + Nokton 35/1.2 II

Yeah, rub it in .
Kidding aside, some great shots Pieter. I also checked where Waterloo is, never knew that. Learned something today thanks to this series.

Lucky Neil is using that neck strap - wouldn't want to drop that bit of kit

I'm a bit disappointed there was no re-enactments but I suppose Pieter is a little tall to play Napoleon.

That cloud formation behind the lion monument in #9 is quite fortuitous and well seen giving a nice ominous bit of drama.

For me #10 is the pick of the bunch so far. Fantastic composition and nice use of light and shadow.

Obviously the saw in the doctors field kit would be for amputations but I also shudder to think what the hammer, chisel and other instruments would have been used for too.

Great thread so far and come on Neil you are falling well behind now and we would love to see your contributions other than your modelling.
