Sun Cloud

A morning view after work walking the dog, looking out towards the Isle of Sheppey sailing club and the old Cheyney Rock Pier, Sheerness, England.

I took the shot having metered for sea in hope of capturing the sun’s rays coming from behind the cloud bank in the sky and I used no filters either! Lucky shot, maybe. The picture didn’t need much editing, just straightening of the horizon and removing a few dust and hair marks here and there.

Causeway light

Warden, Isle of Sheppey, England.
Two hours after sunrise, on the start of what was to be a very hot day. This was the image I viewed over this old concrete causeway at Warden seafront. The light was fantastic that Sunday morning and I only wish I had maybe shot in colour, as the green algae growing on the causeway was glowing from the light behind though the overlapping waves. Still very happy with the result all the same.

Leaving our mark…

‘Leaving our mark on the world for new generations to clean up’.

Which for me sums up the state of some of our beaches in Britain today with all the junk and rubbish left behind from past and present around our coastline.
This is the beach at Warden, Isle of Sheppey, England. The pebble beach is mainly covered in chalk and hard clay from the eroding cliffs behind, which why the old World War Two defences have toppled into the sea, never to be removed. The old motorbike, well you can have a guess how that got there. The same can be said of the sofa behind me in this shot.

The Leica M4-2 has been sent off for a full CLA service at cameraworks-uk.com I’m back to using the old Nikon for the next eight weeks or so.

Tattoo

Another picture from the Leica. I’m finding street photography so much easier with the rangefinder camera.

Image taken on the Minster Leas, Isle of Sheppey, England. First good day of summer weather last month when I saw this couple sitting on the seafront talking, It was then I noticed this lady’s tattoos across her back, her hand gesture and with the older couple walking past, it completed the shot.
