19/12/2021: A first version of an Autumn walk

 

We celebrated my mothers 70th birthday in October of this year. For that occasion, me and my two sisters got together to eat and enjoy a walk in nature. We chose the town Wortel as our getaway. It is a funny name. It means carrot or root in Dutch. 

Wortel is a village in the Belgian municipality of Hoogstraten and was established in the early 19th century by the Society of Benevolence as a farming colony for the able-bodied working poor. It was meant to provide employment during a time when poverty rates were very high in the Low Countries. The landscapes are very interesting, carved by humans ... long straight lanes with very symmetrical plans.

Here is a first version of an image I took of that Autumn walk, a memory of a family moment.

 

 

Let's keep in touch!
