Bishop's Waltham Palace is a moated Bishop's Palace ruin in Bishop's Waltham, Hampshire, England. It is a scheduled ancient monument.  It was built by Henry de Blois in 1135.  Later used by the Bishops of Winchester as they travelled, along with Farnham Castle and Wolvesey Castle.  The palace was visited by Henry V of England, and used by Mary Tudor just prior to her marriage to Philip II at Winchester Cathedral.  The palace was destroyed in 1644 after the English Civil War.

Kids - Leica M9, Voigtlander 75mm, F2.5

With the launch of the New Leica M9 Monochrome, I thought I'll shoot B&W over the weekend.  It was very bright and sunny, so I used a B+W ND filter on the Voigtlander 75mm and shot it wide open at f2.5, ISO 160.  These are black and white straight out of the camera Jpeg not Raw with almost no post production.
