Homeless man in Rue Hamon, Caen, France.
Most of the homeless in France I have observed seem to be older people, unlike here in the United Kingdom where it’s most homeless people are of younger generation.
Seeing the reflection in the shop window, and catching the passerby oblivious to the man sitting on the pavement, made for great street photography picture.

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.

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.

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.

Sitting waiting for wife at Sheerness railway station last summer, I noticed the design of the old benches opposite the station. Unimaginative title I know, but fun all the same.

Another picture from the Leica. I’m finding street photography so much easier with the rangefinder camera.
Image taken on the Minster Leas, Isle of Sheppey, England. First good day of summer weather last month when I saw this couple sitting on the seafront talking, It was then I noticed this lady’s tattoos across her back, her hand gesture and with the older couple walking past, it completed the shot.
