OLD WINE


This hand hewn cave in a tufa cliff on the banks of the Loir has been used to store wine for centuries.  The old barrels, the handmade wooden wine press and the stacked dusty bottles all served as reminders of an industry that has flourished in this part of France for a very long time.  I decided to give the photograph sepia tints acknowledging that as red wine matures, it turns brown in colour.
