Loved your Ethiopia photos. Been to Jinka a number of times over the past 19 years and surrounding areas, and well as to most other areas of the country. Your photos are strikingly beautiful. I thought I might spot someone I know in the crowds at the market, but didn't.

Héél mooi werk, vooral de omgeving van Kessel-lo en de Torlieberg in welke buurt ikzelf woon en schilder. Proficiat.

Hi Monique,

Thank you for sharing all those varied and interesting images of your travel.
You've got a good point-and-shoot camera there and your photos could be sharper if you were to use photoshop or any picture editing software.

Guest 20-Jul-2009 04:54
Fantastic galleries. I'm waiting for an opportune 'between-jobs' time to follow the silk road west from xian. So, your Xinjiang pics etc inspire me! 07-May-2009 07:37
Very nice pictures, nice world, hope we enjoy this world and your work for a long time
Carry on Monique

Best regards and photographies

je suis passé visite ta superbe page bien garnie des jolies photos et ce qui m'a plus retenu c'est la photo de mon frère africain qui s'abrite sous un arbre qu'il a présenté avec un decor de choix mais j'ai plus à vous dire sur dialogue sur msn .A très bientôt

Thank you, Monique, for taking a look. I only had a brief amount of time to look through your galleries and comment, but I plan to have a longer look soon. I liked what I saw very much - what a lucky girl you are to travel so extensively!
Guest 23-Jun-2006 23:26

Je pars en Ethiopie en septembre, ce pays me fascine. Est il facile de voyager? de faire des photos ? de rencontrer les gens du pays?
D'avance merci et encore bravo!!

"Travel Photos " interesting term when applied to these galleries in particular.I see more than just this I see a true artist ,whose love of places and people have enabled her to capture the essence of the places she has visited .Her Ethiopia work is bordering on brilliant in a few exceptional images.Keep it up Monique , we who have the privealedge to view your work are better off as people for seeing the images.You,thru your efforts have also given the countries and their people a great gift.You have shown them in their best light .I love your stuff
Eric Naeyaert 18-Nov-2005 14:09
Dag Monique!
Ik kwam nog eens even surfen op je website. De kwaliteit en de orginaliteit van je foto's vind ik fel verbeterd. Ook je site zelf werd aan een grondige opknapbeurt onderworpen, zie ik. Doe zo verder, Monique! Je kan er alleen maar voordeel uit puren! Genegen groetjes, Eric.
charly 02-Nov-2005 19:33
Dag Monique,

Je kunt werkelijk wedijveren met de beste fotografen. De close-ups van de gezichten zijn sprekend en mooi in beeld gebracht. Het is een plezier om door in je gallerijen rond te neuzen.

Leo from China 24-Nov-2004 08:20
Dear Ms. Monique,

I followed your link left at and found your travel galleries. Here we have an overwhelmingly LARGE number of travel photos, and each of them is unique in their aspects. It will take one maybe weeks or even month before finishing studying of them. I will come back again to take a good look at them at anytime in the future. Best luck to you and your travel photography.

Dag Monique
Schitterende foto's -en altijd het juiste moment getroffen! Het valt me hier weer eens op dat de mooiste dingen niet voor geld te koop zijn: natuur, mensen, vreemde culturen...geen louis vuitton handtas te zien. zalig.

Hey Monique:

What a pleasing view for the eyes... indeed, incredible pictures which support an incredible history of the Bishnoi People!!
