A cottage garden in Stratford-upon-Avon. If my memory is correct this is most probably Hall’s Croft – the home of Shakespeare’s son-in-law, visited during a driving tour of the UK in 1987.
Taken using an Olympus OM2 loaded with Kodachrome 64; digitised in 2011 and restored using Aperture software.

    beautiful, I love the 1970’s colour tones in these images John =- great shot to boot

  • Hi Rinky. I am afraid that the soft tones are more due to age than anything else.
    Even though I have kept all of my slides in proper slide boxes the colour of some batches of Kodachrome have faded noticeably.

  • Thank you for your kind comment. I am glad to find another user of Olympus DSLR’s. We are fortunate to use a system which generates such excellent image colour.

    A lovely capture, John!

  • Thanks Pat.
    This was a memorably lovely village – full of very photogenic cottages and so many historic shakespearean homes.
