DOEL, BELGIUM STREET ART: DOEL NO LONGER EXISTS

None of this exists anymore. Not just the ROA piece, but the village itself has been demolished. I took this pic a few years ago:

Walking past this classic Chevy pickup closed in by a wire fence, I just felt compelled with the way the sunlight was hitting that morning, to take a shot. Just feeds my soul with Americana Blues…

I’m a sucker for ‘door art.’ An entrance to anything gives you a sense of what’s inside.
