Photographer's Note

The unthinkable happened. I left on a (short) in between trip and forgot my camera! Busy packing, getting the car ready, etcetera, etcetera. There are no excuses.

In my opinion, for good pictures you need three things and they are, in order of importance:
1. a good eye,
2. good light and
3. a half decent camera.

Now I had to make do with two out of three and take pictures with my wife's old mobile phone, quite a challenge!


THIS PICTURE shows the entrance to the basilica grounds in Echternach. I thought it might complement the previous, rather less straight forward picture which I posted from this location. I was mainly attracted here by the pattern of the iron gate against the blue sky.

ECHTERNACH is a city in Luxemburg famous for its procession, which has even become a kind of proverb in my native language (Belgian-Dutch). Three steps forward, two steps back. We move forward, but at a pace which is often frustratingly slow.
