Photographer's Note

Best TE friends, previous week I was in Bokrijk Genk Belgium, in the open air museum.
I try my new lens the 70-200mm, you can see the result, later I come back to these series.
I saw a lot houses and old small farms where I saw old tools that I as child saw on the farm of my father and grandfather.
A lot remembrance came out of my child years.

I hope that you can enjoy of the small farm and the green area

A small history of this lovely open air museum.
On the March 21, 1938 the province of Limburg acquired Bokrijk. Governor of Hubert Verwilghen inspired the acquisition. Verwilghen strived for the creation of a public domain that would combine culture and nature. His vision would be realized years later under the dynamic impulse of provincial governor Louis Roppe. On October 6, 1953 Provincial Council of the Province of Limburg decided to create an open air museum in Bokrijk. With the post-war industrial revolution and the increasing development projects of the Fifties, Flanders' living environment was drastically changing. Agricultural buildings of important cultural and historical value for Flanders were disappearing from the landscape. Dr. Jozef Weyns was appointed to coördinate the project and remained in function as first conservator of the Open Air Museum of Bokrijk. The museum opened to the public on April 12, 1958
