    John, you do so well finding leading lines. Good photo.

      Thanks John. I must have walked past this place a hundred times and never thought of photographing it but yesterday the light and the lines just seemed to be perfect. It was raining though and I was a little worried about getting the camera out!


      • John Ferebee says:

        I suspect where you live you’ll need to overcome that concern to some degree:-). Have you looked at the new Sony full frames that are getting all the attention?

        True, it does rain a lot around here. Maybe I should have bought a waterproof camera! Since buying the RX1R I haven’t even thought of looking at new camera’s – my bank account needs time to recover!

    Great sense of peace and tranquility. Nice one John.


  5. Terrific image John and the toning works a treat. I have noticed you shot this with Sony RX1R…Interesting!!
