Kanegem, het is een tijdje geleden dat ik daar nog voorbij kwam, u ziet ieder dorp heft zijn mooi stadhuis, zijn mooi dorp, en zijn beroemdheden.
Den Briek zal wel de meest legendarische zijn, van de eerst heb ik mijn twijfels de tweede ken ik niet.
Uw foto is mooi scherp en heel licht van kleur.
Prettige zondag met veel zon, genieten maar,

Hi Tars !!
You have been a member for a long time, it is time to star presenting more photos.
This church is really elegant and imposing....... I like the style of the roof and the colour of the walls.
You took the shot from the perfect POV on a nice sunny day.
All together...... a very appealing image.
Have a nice week end.
Greeting from Australia.
