Which Way photo challenge – January 29 2021

The Which Way photo challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. 

I loved Ghent and on my wonderings, I visited the Stam Ghent City Museum where fascinating exhibits are to be found. One of my favourites was a whole bunch of aerial photos of Ghent’s stitched together and placed under perspex on the floor.

To walk on it you needed to wear booties that the museum provided. That. is such a stunning way to get the whole visual perspective of a city.

The museum removed this exhibit last year to make way for something new and sold all the panels to interested parties. If I lived in Ghent I would’ve bought one 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Play With

The splashes of colour come from the clothes of people of all ages playing with the white Legos. At the end of the exhibits at the STAM Ghent City Museum is a huge table piled high with white Legos.

All those white Legos, so inviting, no matter how young you are

What is it about Lego that is irresistible, and invites us to connect with our inner playful child…?

Interesting structure

I admit that this was the first time I’ve seen so many white Legos – most unusual.

I wonder which building this is supposed to be?
