Dordrecht.


Photo Information
Despite living in this country for fifty years there are still cities that I've never visited and so last Saturday daughter Shari and I took an awayday to tick another one off the list - Dordrecht, just to the south east of Rotterdam. With its network of waterways and centuries old buildings the city is charming and requires more than one day to see it all. Thus a return visit is surely on the cards. On this street we came across a couple of Canikon groups, one member of which I tried to convert but to no avail! Nevertheless, I think he was quite impressed that I had been using Pentax for more years than he had appendages!
As you can see I used what has become my walk-around lens in recent times, the FA 24-90. Wonderful piece of glassware.

You"ve done a great job there Paul and how clean and tidy it looks, compared to some of our streets. As mentioned above, the bike and streetlamp add everything to the composition..Liked, tommyt.
