In the middle of the city, there was a pen. A fenced in pen close to the man made (I'm assuming) lake in the panorama yesterday. Inside the pen was this interesting "deer like" animal. I say interesting as an ignorant Canadian who really doesn't know what a Belgian equivalent to deer (or similar species) are. I haven't spend any time looking it up either so ... I guess I have no excuse.
Here are a few of the interesting things that I came across while wandering through the city of Tongeren. The first is (obviously) of a pond, the second of what I presume is a fountain, the third a cute sign saying "My dog leaves nothing behind" and finally a panorama of an in city lake.
Here are three more images from an evening in Tongeren (Tongres if you happen to be passing through the French part of Belgium ... but that's another story).
These three are from an evening stroll down by a canal that passes through the city of Tongeren in Belgium. Due to the lack of light, I found that the 'de-saturated' worked the best. The old city feeling (completely justified since Tongeren is a part of the "Most Ancient European Towns Network" and was even famous for a Gaulic rebellion agains Julius Caesar) and the black and white / desaturated look really accentuated the feeling.
Here are some of the images out of the plane flying back from Europe. Does this allow me to count Greenland as on my "countries seen" list?
These two are of the beautiful flowers that ended up in the flower boxes on our back porch this year. I waited until just after a light summer rain and ended up with the following.
