Averbode Abbey is a Premonstratensian abbey situated near Diest in Flemish Brabant.
The Abbey was founded about 1134–1135 and has a very rich history. (wikipedia)
Even for people like me whom are atheist it is an interesting place to visit.
Nearby there is a garden with Stations of the Cross created in the early 1930′ and made and sculptured in and with cement. It seems to be an art form that existed in those days.
I visited the place a few weeks ago on a Wednesday morning. There were hardly tourists, the sun was shining and it was warm and I had a great time.
And how I enjoyed shooting with the Olympus OM-1n. Cocking the shutter with my thumb, carefully composing, the almost inaudible click, yet warm and sexy.
Having a handful original Zuiko lenses with me increased my pleasure and shooting experience even more.
I’ll be doing several posts on this topic during the next couple of days.
