Inspired by Ann Teliczan’s Michigan Sweet Spot photo blog I’ve decided to start sharing my favourite photos on a regular basis. My library of shots I consider worthy is not that big yet so this will be a weekly photo blog for now. The pictures posted will not necessarily be taken on the week they’re posted, in fact, they most probably won’t be. I’ve set up a separate category for these posts within my main blog so they will show up in the regular RSS feed but it’s also possible to subscribe to just the photo blog category.

Now lets get the show on the road! The first photo I’ve chosen to feature is one I took while on holidays in Belgium last Christmas. I’ve captioned it “an evening stroll”. Some of you may not know that I was actually born in the Village of Duffel in Belgium. Duffel is bisected by the river Nete and there is only one road bridge across the river in the village so it’s vital artery for road and pedestrian traffic. This photo shows that bridge silhouetted against a fabulous winter sunset on the evening of the 28th of December 2007.
