Another honeymoon image for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

The Bouquinistes of Paris are booksellers of used and antiquarian books who ply their trade along large sections of the banks of the River Seine… ‘the only river in the world that runs between two bookshelves’.

An image from September 2000 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

My first visit to Paris (on honeymoon no less) was when I started to make a conscious effort to include people in my images, the couple chatting on the river bank really making this image for me…

Monochrome Monday… Market Day

Nikon F2S, NIKKOR-S.C 50mm f/1.4, 1/500, f8 – Kodak Tri-X rated at ISO 320
Developed in Adox Rodinal at 1:25, 7 mins at 20°c.

I’m slowly gaining confidence when it comes to candid/street photography, it’s a slow process as although cameras are now commonplace, people seem to be far more wary of them.

Market day in Mansfield was a good place to practise though, folks were far more interested in getting their fruit and veg!
