Photographer's Note

The Beguinage 'De Wijngaard' (= the Vineyard)is one of those typical areas in Bruges where one can find more peace and quiet than in the sometimes busy and overcrowded streets of the town center.

The Beguinage is a group of houses around a little garden covered with large poplar trees. It was here that during the last seven centuries lived the beguines of Bruges.

In 1937 the beguinage became a monastery for the Benedictine sisters who still live here now.

PS: To see correct colors on this picture, you need a good calibrated screen because the left part has nice green dominance.

Thanks for your comments.
