Delicate Steps…

ISO 200, f5.3, 1/50 sec, 75-200@157mm

Delicate steps with tenous balance on early morning, rain-slicked cobbles.

This image was taken in Beaune, France, the wine capital of the Burgundy region. I took this shot while attending the annual wine auction of the Hospices de Beaune. During this event, the entire city is transformed into a celebration of all things wine. Perhaps this contributed to his unsteady gait?

This was one , if not the first, image that I manipulated with Silver Efex Pro, which I am finding is a wonderful program for creating B&W images.
