Bike Reflection

Honfleur, France. It had just rained when I noticed this powered bike leaning against this sign post and liking the reflection across the paving stones I took the picture. The clippings in the granite stones gives the reflection it’s distinctive look.

Cane & Wicker

Honfleur, France. Outside under some trees behind the L’absinthe Restaurant where these tables and chairs not in use. I was taken with the pattern of the seats, they way three tables were aligned, plus the curvature of the stone paving. The composition was just right for me, so I felt it was worth a few frames.

The Waiting Table

I took this picture while we waited for our lunch, from under the front canopy of the restaurant along ‘Quai Sainte-Catherine’ at Honfleur, France. I liked the view of this shot panned out from the table to the other patrons and finally the boats in the harbour. I had to bracket the shot with five exposures being a little uncertain of the reading with my Weston Euro meter. Between the dark shadows under the canopies and getting a happy medium with the bright sunlight in the harbour and without silhouetting the people opposite. I’m very please with this image how it came out in the end.
