Photographer's Note

I delved into the archives for this photo. I like looking at it, and had thought that I had uploaded it on TE a long time ago. But looking through my Belgium shots I couldn't see it. So here it is, a shot from the winter of three years ago, of the little red boat that was moored for ages in front of the old Gent fish market. I have seen the red boat in some other shots of Gent, and two of my own in my Belgium gallery. I thought it 'belonged' there, but returning a year later to Gent I found it had gone; perhaps it has been returned to its old place. Maybe a member like John Maenhout will know if it has returned.

I remember the month in Gent was marked by many days like this, very gloomy and very cold, but with not a faint breath of wind. It was not hard to find deserted sections of the town beside the river on any freezing morning. I took this photo from just outside our favourite cafe of the time, the Calisto, so well positioned near this curve in the River Leie, and at one end of a pedestrian bridge which can be seen in this photo, along with the fishmarket and red boat, again!
