Hello there and thanks very much for stopping by!!!

I am MsDeGraeve or more commonly called by friends,Raven or by family Stacey :)
I am from the Great Pacific Northwest of the US and currently live in Belgium. How I ended up here is a long story.
As far as me is concerned...I love things are decaying,abandoned or basically a ruin. Creepy is cool. Goth is fab. Old rocks. Flowers are awesome (thanks Daddy) You get the idea. :) Since I live in Belgium there is more than enough to go around. But, that being said...I do also like life in motion,arts,colour and whatever else strikes my fancy.

About the Doel 2020 project that is current project(amongst others): Doel,Belgium is a small,little village being threatened with total destruction just because it happens to be in the way of the Port of Antwerp. This has been ongoing since the late 1970's and as of late coming to head as recently 2009. In the village's heyday 3000 or so souls called it home. Today, less than 50 families remain. Those families solider on,remaining, to take on the Belgian gov't. It remains to be seen if,finally, the village can be rebuilt and renewed. The street art that covers most but not all of the village came about around 2007/08 after the village was mostly abandoned. I say mostly because folks do remain.

If you are an Urban Explorer and wish to visit...please,please and pretty please...respect the remaining residents privacy :)

For more info on Doel: www.doel2020.org/Teksten/engli…

Also, I am activist on several causes in addition to Doel.

I love photographing the local and VERY creative street art as well.

Anything else you would like to know about me or my photos..please drop me a line.

And finally some do ask me ;) I have educational background in History with emphasis on WW II and 15th-17th centuries ARt History. Bit of an art nerd if you will.

NOTE:ATTENTION URBAN EX'ERS :)
I will part with a location in my photos if you do the same for me. If you wish to know a location please send me a message. Otherwise, a general location is all I will give in the description other than the more famous ones,of course!! Happy Exploring!




NOTE: To the Benelux folks...I do read & write in Dutch fairly well,but, zero on the French. Be kind :)

Cheers!
Ms. DG
