There's been a little hut in this place serving meat or sausages since the 12th century, the current "Wurstkuchl" is being operated by the same family since 1806 and since then bratwurst and kraut are the main dishes. Normally it has seating outside but despite Corona it is open for take away.

As mentioned before I'm working on a project to docuemt all the remaining WW1 and WW2 installations around Antwerp on B&W film. Yesterday I took a bicycle ride to two forts that are a bit further from my home (slightly more than 1 hour cycling) and since I had one empty spot in my bag I decided to also take my NEX6 and PZ16-50 along. That way one outing gives me the instant gratification of digital as well as the delayed gratification of seeing the negatives emerge from the development tank

First Fort Broechem

1: Main entrance



2: However the bridge over the moat is gone



After that I cycled on to Kessel for the second fort of the day. This one was interesting, most forts are usually conceiled by many bushes and trees, but this one is much more visible as the local community is keeping the entire front of the fort free of shrubs

3: The fort and its reflection in the moat



4: Main entrance (note the much nicer gate as compared to Fort Broechem above)



5: The entire front of the fort

LR stitch of 3 handheld landscape oriented shots

All NEX6 + E16-50PZ

What's the motivation to use B&W film for this project?

Hi Sashi, well there's actually two reasons, the first is to use my old film equipment. It's different from digital and brings back good memories from learning about photograpy when I was a teenager. Secondly, I think the B&W type film rendering fits these old structures very well. You can do it with digital but still the atmosphere and mood doing it on film is different. We'll see how far I get, currently I'm not even at 25% of what I need so still a long way to go.
