The series of photos below depict pre-season preparations at the Belgian seaside town of Knokke-Heist. I was intrigued by the emptiness of the place on the day I visited. Normally, you can hardly move with the throngs of Belgian, Dutch and German visitors who come to enjoy the beautiful, white sandy beaches and fine shopping and dinning. I have a close affinity with the place having first visited its wide and well appointed promenade and beach back in 1988. Since then, I have spent many enjoyable visits and stay overs with my Belgian family and friends. Well worth a visit if you are ever in the area. As this Guardian article from 2010 states: Belgium’s summer beach secrets. http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2010/jul/16/belgium-summer-beaches-secrets
This is a great idea.The Smithsonian in the US is compiling a compendium of the best rock’n’roll photography throughout the ages for eventual publication in a book. Nice to see my first entry has been selected for consideration. Some great photography on display here. Worth a visit. Link to site: Source: No more heroes. | Smithsonian Institution Rock and Roll

Park Life. A park in a Brussels suburb. Peace and quiet? Is silence really that silent? I worked harder on perfecting the sound of this short film than the images. We Iive in a a media saturated world with a never-ending stream of information screaming for our attention. Nature’s whispers can be just as compelling. All we have to do is listen.
