    Very evocative, particularly – for me – those of Paris, my favourite city (sorry, London!).

    How sad I won’t be in London until a few days after this exhibition ends. I loved Colin’s work for your blog. I wish the project every success.

    Colin certainly had style he is not with us now but his work lives on. Several images here I just love, we see lover’s in that magical moment of their embrace. Colin has taken us momentarily into their private world, he seems to speak to us by saying – I just had to take these pics they were electric. Follow bloggers I hope will understand my picture joy. Poet John PS – Sometimes B/W pics have the edge for serious studies.
