Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
One of Vanessa Morgan’s books, The Strangers Outside, has been turned into a movie. If you want to know what the book is about, it’s better to read my previous post again, because it contains a short synopsis of the book.
Anyway, here is a short clip from the movie:
The name Avalon is actually the name of Vanessa’s beloved cat. He makes a brief appearance in the movie, but as you can see he dies. Don’t worry: no animals were harmed during the making of this movie!
This weekend, Vanessa showed us the holiday cottage where Avalon “died”. It is located just outside the center of a small town, called Sint-Katelijne-Waver:
I have to admit that it was one of the most bizarre places that The Viking and I had ever seen. Imagine a big mysterious building with a World War I memorial surrounded by holiday cottages, which are themselves surrounded by a small river and a forest… As soon as we arrived there, we could sense an eerie atmosphere … Anyway, I took some pictures of the cottage and its surroundings in color and black and white.
