Walk on by…

Taken in Beuvron-en-Auge, Normandy. While visiting this lovely little French village, some middle aged bikers arrived and started looking around. I was amused with this group as from left to right one would stop and they’d all look, then the first one would move on the next location.

Monsieur

I took this portrait of this gentlemen sitting at a street side cafe in the town Orbec, Normandy. Neither of us could speak each others language very well, but he didn’t seem to mind his picture being taken.

Not something I would normally publish, but I look at this image the more interesting I find this picture. Shot on an overcast morning on Minster beach, England. Annoyingly in the distance I could see Southend across the estuary was lit up by sunshine, but maybe the flat light is the why this image works for me.

For some strange reason which I just cannot explain, the horizon doesn’t look level but if you go to crop the picture and bring the crop line down the horizon is straight.

While the boys play

Bartons Point Coastal Park, Isle of Sheppey, England on a cold Sunday morning. Wasn’t sure if these four were related until I spoke to the women after I took the shot, which it seems they were, waiting around while the men raced their model yachts.
Made for a great street photography shot or should that be ‘Lake Photography’?
