I don’t go for a walk that often. But when I do, I try to bring my camera with me. Most often, the camera stays in the bag without being used. But not today.

Next to our ‘Kruiskerk’, a 12th century church, there was this great horse. He (or she?) promted me to stage a photoshoot (Hey! That’s why I brought my camera anyway). Halfway the shoot, the horse walked towards me so we could ‘chat’ a bit. Also, this resulted in the photo above. As you can see, the medieval church stands in the background.
