Brouwerij de Hoorn

The brewery for Stella Artois. Started in 1923, this old brewery is currently reconverted into a place you can rent for parties, meetings and weddings. At the time of shooting these photo’s, it was abandoned. https://www.arnoraps.be/gallery/brouwerij-de-hoorn/

HF6

This blast furnace was being demolished, so I was just in time to visit this giant location.  https://www.arnoraps.be/gallery/hf6/

Theatre des Reines

This former theatre was on my to-visit-list for a long time. Already tried to get in once, this time it worked. Too bad works were already started, so some cables and floor protection were ruining some shots. https://www.arnoraps.be/gallery/theatre-des-reines/ ‎

Master of Steel

Return of the King

Not a lot of photo’s of this castle, just as I started taking pictures, the owner was shouting from outside… So I had to find a way to escape. He never saw me 😉   More images can be seen here: https://www.arnoraps.be/album/return-of-the-king/

Rusty Dusty

This was huuuuuge. Walked like 15 km only to see everything in this factory. Mostly empty, but did find some nice photo-ops. Special metal wires were made here.   https://www.arnoraps.be/album/rusty-dusty/

Slaughterhouse

A few weeks ago Anya asked if I would like to visit this location. This pig slaughterhouse was impressive. It did make me think for a moment seeing the scale of this, but I still like some meat though. Some people told me this was only a small factory, so there are even bigger slaughterhouses active.…
