I did not really feel like I had finished with Paris
So I converted some of my photographs to Black and White.
I was looking for that grainy gritty romantic notion of paris I have always had in my head.
I think Paris really lends its self to B & W and I think its always how I pictured Paris before I went there.

Two more Photographs from our trip in August this year.
This was taken on my walk around the Torrens lake last Sunday, and I have included the original Photograph as it was shot
ISO 100, Exposure 1/6 at F20,Focal Length 55.
There was a downpour just before the Photograph was taken, and it gives some really nice reflections that enhance the image !

I took this Photo when I was at Lake Windermere in August
and I was drawn to these wooden Boats all tied up in a row they have a lot of character.
Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial. It has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway‘s branch line in 1847. It is in the county of Cumbria and entirely within the Lake District National Park.
Last Night we decided to jump in the car and go down to Henley for an Ice cream.
I am glad we did it was just stunning.
