Photographer's Note

In Flemish Belgium we get a lot fog the last day, real November weather.
During a bike trip saw I this image to Damme, I took this picture with the bridge handrail as long perspective

History, can you find www.damme//
In 1810, Napoleon tried to link Bruges with the Schelde via a new canal.
This plan was never entirely completed and at present day, the canal goes no further than Sluis. This canal is the famous "Damse Vaart".
Unfortunately, this canal was dug through the center of Damme, this meant that a lot of buildings had to be demolished. The "Korenmarkt" and a lot of beautiful gentleman's houses dissapeared.
The 3 streams that juncted in the center of town, "Lieve" (Ghent-Damme), "Reie" (Bruges-Damme) and "Zwin" (sea-Damme), and the port of Damme were filled up with the sand of the new canal.

I wish all visitors a very nice day.
