Here are some more from my trip to the UK and France in 1959 (These days they call those trips "Gap Year Tours" - to us it was an excuse to get away from our parents and to head off for the 'Exciting Adventure").
Leaving UK and the White Cliffs of Dover
Nord Pas de Calais - bad exposure but it was a stormy day!
Many of the remnants of the WWII German defences were still
visible but most were barricaded off.
City Hall, Calais
Church de Notre Dame, Calais - not far from the WWI cemetery
WWI cemetery, Calais
Bridge over the Seine, Paris
Old buildings, Plaine de Monceaux, Paris - 66 th administrative
district of Paris located in the 17 th arrondissement .
Under the bridges of Paris, River Seine - not a good exposure
but I wanted to capture the strength of the river's flow.
Eiffel Tower in the distance - Taken from the rooftop
restaurant/cafe I worked as a kitchen hand
Returning to Dover - I had never realised how starkly beautiful those
"White Cliffs" actually were until I saw them for myself!
Considering I was not much more than a kid, I was using a pocket Minolta camera with black and white film, my only other 'photography experience' had been with a Brownie Box camera, I reckon I did pretty good. I'm glad I've started converting these images into digital formal 'cos the old hard copy versions are about to 'expire'!
