    SA-first saterday in november

    Sint Amandsberg
    The Ghent diocese was looking for extra territory outside it's own frontieres - that is the reason why SA was founded and named after Sint-Amand - preacher of the word of God in the 7th century.
    At the corner of "Antwerpsesteenweg/Visitatiestraat" you will find the Neo Gothic cityhall builded in 1880 by the architect De Noyette.
    The picture shows a local market in november

    Black and white

    All Saints - a day of rememberance.
    I went to this God's acre and was certainly not the only one.
    This black cat seems to me a symbol of life and death - sun and darkness
    In terms of the Yin and Yang expression - in which i believe - The perfect circle of contradictions.
    White and black - but the most important is the center - the balance between both.

    Campo Santo

    This graveyard is famous because many east flanders people of the political-cultural and religious scenary are buried here.
    Campo Santo is located in the center of my little town, on a sandy hill .
    The picture shows the "Amanduskapel" (1720) functioning actually as a little exhibition hall

    Please knock first ..

    The specific beauty of many "Beguinages"
    is the way the private rooms of the religious inhabitants are protected by walls - the doors and the symbolics of their believe.
    "Always welcome stranger -But please knock on the door - except you are the lord himself"
