JHM New site Aug 2017 – 2018

Fifteen-year TE
We are back a year later, December 15th. Fifteen years ago, I posted my first photo.
Meanwhile, much has changed, the world is shocked daily by people wanting to hurt others, which affects honest citizens.
The members on TE that are still really interrupted on this site are small.
Photographing and a good text teaches us so much about the world.
I'm not a traveler, so I have to look for other members who travel and show images where I can learn something.
Different people help me with that.
For me, maybe it's my last year, I'm getting older and older, I hope this is not yet visible, but my health often plays tricks, and these are signs of age.
We all want to grow old, but nobody wants to be old!
Still, I always want to make a good picture, but this is really subjective because this one is beautiful, the other is not enough.
I hope that I will be able to write a new intro next year, I'm still there and let us all show in peace and friendship for each other.
TE must be the site of peace-loving people, women and men, old and young, with a mind of good understanding

Ghent music on water in center from Ghent

2009 on Saturday afternoon I was in Ghent saw these musician middle on the river give a serenade, a lot tourist could enjoy of this lovely weather and the nice music.

I found this article about Ghent.
National Geographic Traveler Magazine is a reference for anyone who enjoys travel, fine photography and insightful journalism. At the end of November 2008, the magazine published a top 109 of the most authentic destinations worldwide. The historic city center of Ghent ranked third!
What a surprise! Not that Ghent is an authentic, real city filled with excellently preserved buildings, monuments and art treasures, but the real surprise is that the city is recognized for these qualities! And there’s more. Ghent is praised for its “brilliant mix of a wonderful past and a contemporary, vibrant city”.
Ghent can boast the title of highest-ranking city, being preceded only by Austria’s Wachau Valley and the area around the Rideau Canal in Ontario, Canada. In Ghent’s wake are prestigious destinations such as Lyon, York, Dublin, Istanbul, Cape Town, Munich and many others.
