The Beautiful Murray River South Australia.
I added a little bit of grain to this Picture to give it that film noise characteristic.
A few more Photographs around the Town of Renmark South Australia.
Renmark is a town in South Australia‘s rural Riverland area, and is located 254 km northeast of Adelaide, on the banks of the River Murray. The Sturt Highway between Adelaide and Sydney runs through the town; Renmark is the last major town encountered in South Australia when driving this route. It is 31 m above sea level. It is the oldest European settlement on the River Murray. At the 2011 census, Renmark had a population of 7,491.

Days Off so we headed off to Renmark a town along the Murray River and a chance to relax and take some Photographs.
The Murray River (River Murray in South Australia) is Australia’s longest river. At 2,375 kilometres (1,476 mi) in length, the Murray rises in the Australian Alps, draining the western side of Australia’s highest mountains and, for most of its length, meanders across Australia’s inland plains, forming the border between the states ofNew South Wales and Victoria as it flows to the northwest, before turning south for its final 500 kilometres (310 mi) or so into South Australia, reaching the ocean at Lake Alexandrina.
Being one of the major river systems in one of the driest continents of Earth, the Murray has significant cultural relevance to Indigenous Australians. According to the peoples of Lake Alexandrina, the Murray was created by the tracks of the Great Ancestor,Ngurunderi, as he pursued Pondi, the Murray Cod. The chase originated in the interior of New South Wales. Ngurunderi pursued the fish (who, like many totem animals in Aboriginal myths, is often portrayed as a man) on rafts (or lala) made from red gums and continually launched spears at his target. But Pondi was a wily prey and carved a weaving path, carving out the river’s various tributaries. Ngurundi was forced to beach his rafts, and often create new ones as he changed from reach to reach of the river.

Something Happened here !
Years gone by
Time fades all the memories
Flashes of a past
To decayed to recall
Once high spirits filled this space
Now only silence to take its place
The faces of the past all faded to grey
The memories of this place have all been taken away.
Haikyo (廃虚) (literally “abandoned place”)
I did not really feel like I had finished with Paris
So I converted some of my photographs to Black and White.
I was looking for that grainy gritty romantic notion of paris I have always had in my head.
I think Paris really lends its self to B & W and I think its always how I pictured Paris before I went there.

I took this Photo when I was at Lake Windermere in August
and I was drawn to these wooden Boats all tied up in a row they have a lot of character.
Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial. It has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway‘s branch line in 1847. It is in the county of Cumbria and entirely within the Lake District National Park.
