Regina Bruggia by Strooitje Regina Bruggia by Strooitje
Part of a serie : strooitje.deviantart.com/galle…

Regina Bruggia, or the Queen of Bruges

She weares the Belfry of Bruges as a Pharao crown.
The Belfry of Bruges, or Belfort, is a medieval bell tower in the historical center of Bruges, Belgium. One of the city's most prominent symbols, the belfry formerly housed a treasury and the municipal archives, and served as an observation post for spotting fires and other danger.
The belfry is also known as the Halletoren (tower of the halls).
The halls were a medieval marketplace where a lot of good were traded, hence the treasury on the 2nd floor.
She watches over Bruges and the trade that made the city rich and famous eventhough dark clouds seem to threaten the modern day economy...

I've heard that before... It's probably her face that has still the look of a child, while her expression radiates great worries...

Grappig, dat van die ogen. Mensen lijken dat ineens veel te zeggen.

Ja, ik ben best ge´nteresseerd, maar ik heb geen idee hoe dat in zijn werk gaat.

Awel, ofwel spreken we eens af en neem ik de fotos, ofwel leg ik je uit wat ik juist zoek en neem je de fotos zelf...
Naargelang je het liefst doet
Zit je online ?
Anders spreken we af in de damn Belgians room ?
