    Hi Eddie,

    You can loan my Manfrotto 455B or Berlebach 8083 Report Ash wood with 551 head.

    Even maybe better shooting together. However you're in the Ardennes now and have to go up to the South East of the Netherlands (Regio Oss - Nijmegen).

    I have a shooting Regional (on Sunday morning) with my friend Jorge from Portugal. Around the river Maas. I am sure you would like this too. Further you can always go to Brugge but that's in the West of Belgium, you're in the East now
    And if you want to see old houses, come to Ravenstein, 650 years old in nice style like Amsterdam.

    Greetz,

    Robert

    The Maas is nicer in and just south of Namur, Robert.
    Why don't you and your friend meet up with Eddie there, and then go to Brugge (which is even more beautiful than Raventein) later?

    First, if you guys are meeting up, it's not longer a "loner" tripod. Perhaps a "loaner" now.

    Things can change quickly. Eddie is underway for a nice shoot and I have planned for the next day a shoot in the Belgium Haute Fagnes and Monschau (Germany). From there it's easy to go back to Namen (Namur) again.

    If we want we can do our own film development in B&W, C41 from 35mm till 8x10". I am sure this will be a great week end!

    Greetz,

    Robert

    I will see what we made yesterday and on Saturday. It was a great experience and except from Jorge (my friend) we met AGX(from APUG) , who went to Holland to see and meet our shoot. Lucky for him the town is very small so that he could find us at the end.

    That place, Ravenstein, was new to me.

    The surrounding countryside was charming; I later spent some time driving an top of those winding dykes and through some alleyways.


    By the way, I got to hold an Chamonix field camera in hand first time. An impressing, little (4x5) thing.

    Yes, It's a very nice environment but next time take your (analog) camera with you and make a call to join us.
