B&W Paris

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.

Hope you Like them

Windermere

Wooden Boats

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.

From Wikipedia

Windermere is the largest natural lake in England.[1] 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.
