Winter Weather

Finally the cold weather has arrived in the UK. For some ice and snow, for me biting cold winds and rain …not great holding a brass camera with bare hands!

Brisk

Following morning, calm but very cold on the island. One lonely brave soul walking along the top of the shingle bank in the icy weather to work.

Chilly Commute

This has to be my favorite image. The storm is brewing over the other side of the Thames Estuary, heading south towards me. The sea is getting rougher, clouds darkening, beginning of hard rain and sleet, Storm Arwen is coming.

Bathtub

Rye, England. September 2021

While spending a day in Rye, the wife and I saw the couple buying an old metal bathtub at a antiques shop. At the time I wasn’t close enough to get a shot nor was their surroundings quite right for the picture. It couldn’t of been more than half an hour later as we wandered up the historic 12th century Mermaid Street I found the same couple walking along up the hill complete with the old tub …got them!

No one’s listening

Canterbury, England. September 2021

This guy was very good on his guitar, as the world pasted by and seemed oblivious of his music. I put a pound in his instrument case and he was quite happy for me to take some images of him as he played.
