Booksellers Along the Seine

Challenge No. 34 - Debbe's Pick - Try Something New in PhotoShop


I have been experimenting with the idea of an ink or pencil sketch and giving it a painterly look. My last few images reflect this new-to-me process.


Still pulling out old travel photos during the rainy days here. The bookseller stalls are permanent fixtures here. The tops fold down at night to cover the items for sale, which means they are always damp and cold, being along the river. The booksellers do not have to carry the items back and forth. They just bring a chair, unlock their stall, put the top up, and hope for some sunshine.


Same as me, hoping for some sunshine today. . .
