Loches

While my parents were here, their excitement about Loches inspired me to take my proper camera around town to snap some pics, instead of always relying on my iPhone. I love the convenience of the iPhone of course, but I brought a new(ish) lens with me to France and I have not once put it on my camera since we arrived. So, I decided to trip around town and give it a test drive. The photo above was taken from our doorstep, looking up the hill. I will miss this when we go back home.

A quiet moment on the street in Loches.

I love the way that black + white photography brings out the texture in the stone buildings, and enhances the contrast with the roofs. I think when we come home to Victoria I’d like to take some more time to learn photography. I’ve got a few goals that I’d like to work on, so it’s time to make some strides towards them.
