24.   Bruges,  thirty years on
24. Bruges, thirty years on

I've photographed this scene since we first visited Bruges in the 1970's,  and it remained virtually unchanged for many years.  For black & white, its been best when damp and a little gloomy, as here. But on my last visit, in 2006, the nearest house was for sale, and the bicycle was never there whenever I walked past. The cobbles had gone, replaced by tarmac. I'd come to think it would remain forever.
