Part 2 of my visit to the Vleeshuis museum takes us to the basement of the building. We find ourselves in a copy of a brass instrument workshop.This setup came from Atelier Van Engelen from the city of Lier. They were a leader of making these instruments until the 1970's. Just a part of their old atelier is shown here.

In another part of the basement the museum created the scene of a dance hall. Almost every neighbourhood had a place like this and the people liked to dance and enjoy themselves.

I believe there is one cafe in Antwerp who still has got an organ. Before they were common in cafes and dancehalls.

Kalliope the forrunner of the jukebox.

The last part is devoted to Bell making. You are shown here how a bell is shaped and casted. all objects come from the foundry of the family Seyghers, they dat back to the 16th century.

This visit to the museum was a big challenge for the low light capability from my camera. Had to go high in the sensitivity, something I do not like. They are bit grainy but very usable.

Such a neat location. I think for the iso level they are quite useable and one thing with Fuji and Olympus is their digital noise reminds me more of grain in film than a noise.

I'm surprised that there is very little noise in these low light shots despite the high ISO. Nice job.

It was a good test.

Loved these photos. Glad you took them in color. The dark and moodiness are really nice. I am not sure what graininess you are complaining about, I think your camera did exceptionally well considering how high some of the ISO's were. Really great series!
