(I'm still inside the cloister )








(but not alone! :-))




(chips! high fence :-S)



one side


the herb garden is actually mostly what we would call an 'artsenij' garden, plants for phyto medicine/doctors. (and actually still in use, digitalis/fox glove and lily-of-the-valley for instance are important in allopathy, but synthetic versions only, because of registration (!). hence side effects? and homeopathically of course, but a totally different story).
so most of these plants are better not used for your supper.
unless you want it to be your last supper?
(given the time of year... :-)).

even the 'tap', copper/bronze oxide, once popular as a pigment in art painting, known as Schweinfuttergrun, now forbidden because of its toxicity, is something you wouldn't want on your plate either?


and another







I didn't take any pics in the church either, but while walking out





(but then, I didn't come to the meeting to take pics, I came to see the people I became quite familiar with over the years (so familiar they are actually in my ..... ).   
so embarrassed to admit there was no effort whatsoever trying to come up with a single decent pic.
-earlier brief attempts in the cloister in the last post in the cities-of-the-world/Walcheren thread-)





that would be us invading the church :-)
(big church, still couldn't believe the number of people that were coming out! (after the service). did anyone count?).





I never knew the church was part of the abbey complex. and what's more, didn't even know there were 3 churches there! asked a friend (who is so much into religion they even have their own church), but even she didn't know where the 3rd church, de Wandelkerk, is! (unless they turned it into a café? as they were all drinking coffee in a rather fancy place).








heard the 'wings' of the organ can be operated.
do they mean they flap while the organ is being played?





out, out! everybody (kicked) out!





some of us found it hard to part






are we waiting?









(ridiculous crop of statue 'faith' above the Gistpoort, 1 of the abbey gates. shot from across the street. given up on perspective ;-))

Nice set Ine!

This is why I found it hard to part

In fact I was almost left behind in the cloister. The man wth the famous shoes had locked the door already, but was kind enough to open it after my knocking

And these lamps were on top of the pole in the last couple of pics from Ine's previous set.

Hey this one was shot with Ine's Trioplan 50, not really the best situation to shoot bubbles

@ Fred_S, really like "doubt" on the fish market (or grain market)
@ angora, nice cloister shots!
@ Snegren, really like S15, good use of WA and perspective
@ Fred_S, my Koepoort will still need to be processed, but it will come (some day   ), indeed quite a coincidence on the bridge gear, almost identical shots without standing next to each other
@ angora, those murals are in parking garage Geere
@ Fred_S, I like your colour version of "endless", now I have to come up with a 3rd PP option
@ angora, I'm not PP'ing and posting in order, it's random order on which images I pick to show here. Btw, very good reportage on the cloisters and church
@ Fred_S, see p27 on an entirely different take on the lamps in front of the church entrance


p27, new lamp, old tower

A7 + Heliar 40/2.8


p28, Indeed, Dyxummers seem to like to stand in passageways

A6000 + Metabones speedbooster + OM Zuiko 100/2.8


p29, Spijkerbrug and Sint Joris

A7 + Heliar 40/2.8


p30, gear detail 1

A6000 + Metabones speedbooster + OM Zuiko 100/2.8

A6000 + Metabones speedbooster + OM Zuiko 100/2.8


p32: gear shadow

Wonderful images everyone, and such a pity I couldn't stick around for longer than I did. In the three hours with you I only managed a few images, mainly for my stubborn approach to patiently waiting outside the church with my macro lens to snap an action shot of a spider hunting flies. In fact I had hundreds of shots of this brick wall, but none with spider and fly together. This is as close as things got...

0. Spider in hole


But I did manage some other photos in Middelburg, firstly with Snegren at the Zeelandbrug...

1. Artist at work


2. Into the abyss


3. Light


Then enroute to Middelburg stopped to snap the mist...

4. Misty


5. Misty reeds


6. take off


Finally in Middelburg, but still pre-meet...

7. Windmill


8. Blossom


9. reflections


10. Daffs


And finally the full meet starts...

11. Biscuit


12. Gear


13. Fly


14. What you lookin' at


15. Peeling and fly


16. There's always one...


17. Shooting bolts


18. Shooting bolts? What a good idea..


19. final scene

Convincing Comeback Simon

The morning shots are beautiful.
Both bridge shots (1,3) and mist shots(6) are great.

I missed your struggling with the spider (wonder that you found it in the first place)AND I didn't know any Dutch spiders that jump out of a hole to catch their pray. Maybe they don't exist and you waited in vain

shot 16: too many flies
What made them gather? I learned from somebody of Health inspection that the gathering of (only) two flies indicate some dead mouse or rat. What was it here

17&18 (bolt shooting )

And a very warm version of the old street
Be yourself, there are enough others Comment yourself there are enough interested readers

Despite your shorter stay, a very nice set indeed Simon.
I like your bridges 1 and 2, the misty shots and the old street most. TFS
