This is the first image in an ongoing set of Chateau Chenonceau which I took on my last visit to France in Sept 2011.
.
This fairytale chateau Chenonceau was built on the River Cher and owes a lot of its charm to women.
Built in 1513AD by Katherine Briconnet , then made more attractive by Diane de Poitiers, then made famous by Catherine de Medici.

But my camera is my passion.

    This is fabulous Larry – I really have to get to grips with editing and processing to be able to produce something like this ;)

  • Like I tell everyone Mattie……..without having to train yourself with something like Photoshop, you only have to get the FREE download from Google called “Picasa3” and you can do heaps…
    It’s all done with a slide bar and your own imagination… It’s so easy.
    But if you do download it, just make sure that it isn’t your main photo viewing program.
    B/Mail me if you want to know anything… I have been using it for years..
