06.11.14 - Wet Cobbles

This is from my guided photo walk round Lincoln last night, experimenting with a low perspective and close-up point of focus. This is the first time we've had a walk with a bit of rain for several months, which most people might see as a negative, but I love because of the magical effect it has on the cobbles. Just a tiny bit of moisture makes them highly reflective, their colour changes and they lift the scene to a whole new level. The building on the left is the famous "Jews House", the oldest continually inhabited house in Britain, built in the 12th century. The building on the left is much younger, built in the 17th, it is a beautiful part of town.
