Super shots Paul. Honfleur is a wonderful place I visited once whilst passing through Le Havre enroute to Paris. I like the results from the Twist 60. Martin

Thank you Martin. I stayed a few days in Honfleur while doing some work on the refinery in Le Havre. It will always stay in my mind because my colleagues and I made an excursion to Etretat and I got food poisoning (probably a bad oyster) and was violently ill all night and the better part of the next day. As a result I didn't get to see much of Honfleur. This year the wife and I visited Honfleur and Etretat on the last day of our summer holiday.

And that Lensbaby Twist has captured a special place in my heart. So easy to use and nicely swirly.

Lovely set! I went there in 2010, here are a few shots I've posted here before, just for fun.

How strange - my daughter lived in Vernon for a year and had a similar experience in Etretat.

Perhaps they don't take the well being of their patrons as the highest priority. I like to think it is coincidence though.

Hi Paul,

A lovely series showing us both wide views and those all important details of this wonderful and enchanting place. Such a pity that the weather wasn't playing ball with you as a little bit of sunlight would have made the location come alive in terms of colour etc. Even so, there are some fine studies in here of French provincial life and I particularly like #'s 9, 15, 16 and 17 as small slices of that life.

Thanks for sharing and best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

Thanks Neil! A lovely city indeed. Most of the images were taken on Friday before the week-end crowds streamed in. On Saturday there was a Porsche club meeting (could not find a single 356 and 911s were mainly recent, not interesting to me). The weather was better but the city was swamped with tourists.

Very nice series Paul! I love the street details, but the night shots with the almost perfect reflections in the harbour are great too. The light in the church was very nice as well. If I were made to choose, it would be #4 and 17. TFS
