  1. I love following railroad tracks… and walking on them… a long one traverses the island that Montreal is… it’s illegal to walk on it… but holes… and holes.. are made through the fences… it’s an absolute war of holes… but please, don’t tell anyone…

    • πŸ˜ƒ I won’t! I did it once, only to make a short cut; the police suddenly arrived out of nowhere… I got away with the promise to never do it again.. On these tracks the trains don’t move anymore; only their skin, very slow and beautiful. πŸ™„πŸ‘βœ‹

    • I think it comes from ‘Hohes Venn’ (German) which is the name of the area the trains once drove through. Venn=Veins is a wet kind of landscape that once provided peat. βœ‹

        • πŸ‘ you’re right. The translation ‘Veins’ I got on the Dutch word ‘venen’ has nothing to do with ‘Venn’ because ‘venen’ has has more than one meaning. ‘Moor’ is also pretty close to ‘Venn’.

  3. Interesting conversation above, Harrie, and nice photos, beautiful skies…

    • Thanks Lynn. Yes, those clouds really gave their best that day. This series, with a small Annemieke in the distance, also shows that biking and photography don’t go well together. Stopping every 100 meters won’t get you far; leads to ‘marital disputes’ πŸ˜‰; and the speed of biking is too fast to get hooked on fine details. But good for the People are Small series.. πŸ˜‚βœ‹
