Quick snaps

Bordeaux
Dave’s shot of the Opera House

I’ve been trying my hand at decent photography lately and it’s a good thing “film” is digital because I need lots of practice!

These are a few of the photos snapped around Bordeaux (city) on various days since my arrival. Fair warning, some of them have been adjusted in Photoshop because the actual photo I took was blown out and details were hard to see. Lesson learned, but also, it’s fun to experiment. One of my favorites isn’t even one that I took! Dave was with me and something caught his eye so he snapped it. His photo of the Opera House at dusk is lovely (no retouching needing!).

This street has a huge bookstore on the corner (nearest me, right) but the street itself is Rue de la Porte Dijeaux, named so for the arch (door=porte) at the end of it
