Exploring the neighborhood

I don’t know how common is the issue of not appreciating the immediate neighborhood where one happens to be living in. Me and Waffle have that issue often. We do explore around, but usually do not bother taking the camera with us, so the wonders of Rupelmonde and Oost-Vlaanderen are left undocumented.

This weekend we found our backbones and did take a dog and a camera and managed to come out alive with some photos. So here you go!

We encountered an adventurous gentleman. He happened to be a grab, far, far away from his home.

Straight lines.

That was surprisingly calm but rich weekend. You do not always need to go far to find beauty and wonder. Just step out of the door and take a different set of eyes with you.

This was us, finally saying the bitter sweet goodbyes to the summer, welcoming the crispness of autumn.
