A few from the isle of Aix, a small island (a 2 hours' walk around it, at a leisurely pace) just off the coast west of Rochefort and south of La Rochelle.

Hollyhock abounds...


2 do fortifications...






...and, of course, bicycles!

Some lovely monochromes. Great eye. I really like 2 and 3. I like 1 too, but I find myself wondering that the funny horizontal line in the sky is? Is it just a con trail? I would be tempted to clone it out and see what that looks like.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Thank you all. David, of the three, I miss the sun (and its warmth) most! Flan and LennyB, that's pseudo-polarizing in pp, but I liked how it worked. And 7 might be my favorite there too, Lenny. Kris, a contrail most definitely. Didn't bother me, but now that you've put your finger on it... (and there's one in 3, too).
