The Typical Tourist Pose…

Himself and I start fooling around with photographs of the unusual border that marks Baarle-Nassau / Baarle-Hertog so starkly. The street near the old “Stadhuis” (Town Hall) in Baarle-Hertog (Belgian territory) is a quiet one that branches out onto another small and fairly quiet street. I photograph him in the typical tourist pose: standing stride the border with one half of him in The Netherlands and the other half of him in Belgium. The silver domed disks in the road showing that the quirky borders are anything but logical.

  1. So, you park the car and cross the street into another country…fascinating! The typical tourist pose is a must take photo for everyone, did you pose too? Thank-you for a fun post.

    • Ellen,
      Himself with a camera? HaHa…. Nope, and I’m the sort of person who always seems to manage to have my eyes closed in photos.
      Anyway, wheelchair wheels or my orthopaedic boot with crutches are not nearly as photogenic as my husbands lovely legs! Glad you enjoyed the post, it was fun to make 🙂
