Saturday I spent some quality time with my 12 - Soon 13 - year old daughter Caitlin.

We traveled by train to the station of Liège Guillemins (Luik), this futuristic train station

was designed by the famous Spanish architect Calatrava and it is a photographers dream, anywhere you look you wish to take another shot. Due to it's attractiveness to the camera, this station has quickly become a magnet for photographers, we didn't count the number of photographers we encounters but there sure were a lot.


While I was using my new 60D I let Caitlin use my 'old' 400D, photography is new for her but I'm sensing some talent there ;)


Shooting a place that has been shot so many times before becomes a challenge to come up with something new, I decided to use my fisheye primarly since I hadn't found any fisheye versions of this station on flickr yet and a place like this is a fisheye dream...


There are plenty pictures of this place to come and my daughter started her own stream to upload her first step in photography (see below).
