Literally a view looking down the main street on the Isle of Sark, just beside Guernsey. Its not a big island, there arnt a lot of full time residents either, and the streets and roads are just dirt tracks, but to me, this all adds to its charm.

Ive given this image a bit of TLC and some old school effects to hopefully further enhance this old worldiness.

Taken with my Fujifilm S7000

    This has been given lovely treatment Chris. I had forgotten how small the road is! Mind you, chances are the art of NOT getting run over is limited to bikes and tractors. LOL

  • Haha Hmmm well funny you should say that! Not long after taking the photo i very nearly got run over by an old woman on a mobility scooter thing! She came out of nowhere at warp speed, i literally jumped thinking it was a tractor (dont ask!!) and she just laughed!… and her laugh? It would have sent shivvers up the spines of even the most evil Jame Bond villan!!
