This just won’t do. The intention for this series was to show how I expand my horizons; from being city-bound by a debilitating disease to slowly being able to visit neighboring cities, towns and nature reserves on my own. Alas, subsequent infections in March left me nearly neighborhood-bound.
I intend to continue this series for at least the remainder of 2010, but maybe I should change the formula. Instead of just taking some photos of landscapes and birds, maybe I should try to look at Ostend from a tourist’s point of view, of someone who has never seen Ostend before. Maybe I should include some movies instead of just a slide show with photos.
Let’s see what April brings. But for now back to March.
In my previous article February 2010 in Pictures I complained that there was still no sign of Spring. Well, the Black-Tailed Godwits have arrived, 3 weeks late, and birds have started singing, so I guess Spring has finally arrived.
The photos taken in March will bring you some more birds and pictures from the motorway into and out of Ostend. The motorway was very quiet as it was already close to 4.30 pm. Could this be an indicator for the state of the economy in Ostend?
The last photo is from roadworks near my home. They have been at it for a year now and it’s about time they start wrapping it up. It will be an improvement for cyclists.
I must confess that I have been outside of Ostend in March; my father drove me to Neder-Over Heembeek near Brussels to a clinic for tests. On all occasions I forgot to take my camera with me. In April I will go house-sitting in a neighboring town for 4 days and I will try not to forget my camera.
All photos were taken with my Canon Powershot S3 IS. For the long distance shots I used the Canon Teleconverter TC-DC58B 1.5x with the Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC58E.
