Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable new year. This is one of those image, that having grown up in the states, just fuels my calling for travel. I shot this image from the hallway of a tiny little hotel in Bordeaux, France. I’m pretty sure I could travel this great nation, and never find a scene like this from any hotel windows, let alone an open window without glass. I can feel the wanderlust kicking in……next stop!

Here’s the original image prior to the magic of Silver Efex Pro 2…
