Trip to the Cotswolds on a showery day
Had a nice visit with family to the pretty village of Broadway, in the Cotswolds, last weekend.
I took a few photos but the light was drab and grey. Then I saw an old Morris Minor which looked great in front of the old cottages, and when I got home it gave me the idea of giving the photos an old world feel.
The textures of the buildings worked well in black and white (an old trick when the light is poor but you need to tweak the exposure of each different colour to get the best effect) and I added a bit of grain and vignette to help get the right look.
This cottage was particularly striking:
The look almost turned this pretty Cotswold village into a mining village!
I just found these pictures today! Thanks so much Tim! Joanne Atkinson Barker and I had such a lovely time in England so many years ago! I dearly loved your Mother!
