Some shots from Lille

I was in Lille the last few days for a family gathering. To work off some of the food and alcohol (they know how to feast, the French), I took a walk around the town centre with the Pen-F.

Nice set, I particularly like Street Chess, Kolor, the man carrying the board and Distorted Rectangles.

A lovely set Paul. I like them all but the first one is a cracker.

These are all really good, Paul - wish I had the chance/time/energy to do similar..... someday, but just not someday soon no doubt!

Great set, lovely colours
I'm still a bit freaked out by the Distorted rectangles shot - can't quite work it out!

It's actually just a regular shot of a building taken with the 12-40 that I've then "de-fished".

Nice.

Although I think you should have called the third photo "chat room"

Couple of sets of lovely images. Not sure Siamese consider themselves to be moggies though..... That one was just thinking 'ah finally the staff photographer has arrived'....

Excellent shots Paul, you've really given a feel for the place. You certainly have a knack for making a simple shot look that bit special.
