These were the last pictures I took in Brussels last night. At the Mont des Arts (in French) or Kunstberg (in Dutch), one gets a great of view of the capital city.

Take the stairs to the top and you will see a much better view. At the center is the famous tower of the Brussels Town Hall in the Grand Place. Initially, I thought it was the tower of the Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula, but immediately realized I was wrong as the Cathedral’s tower isn’t pointed.

I was told that Brussels is not like Paris where there is countless material for photography. Well, if one tries hard enough, one can also find lots of photography-worthy places in Brussels. It is all about effort and patience. Seek and you shall find.
