Propped Up

I love leading lines and perspective. Images that literally seem to draw you in the picture. For me this is one of those images. This is Botolph Lane in the centre of the city.  A very narrow road, this takes you from Trumpington Street through to Pembroke Street. A long wall along one side (the impressive Botolph Church located behind it) and a row of mismatched terraced houses of various shapes and sizes on the other. A handful of small business tucked in-between the residential dwellings (mostly student accommodation). Although I never actively try to plug places in Cambridge too much I must mention Christine Patisserie which is located Katy the Trumpington street end. Containing a veritable feast of cakes and sweet tooth indulging goodies this is a great place to go for a mid morning cake and coffee or lunch time sandwich! Anyway plug over. 

I tried this image in both colour and monochrome finishes and settled on this Lightroom filter which gives the image a very slight blue tinge. The bike in the foreground helps to give the image an initial focus point.
