Damp Morning

Taken on Sunday, damp morning before sunrise looking down Marine Parade Sheerness, England. It’s a shame you cannot get any detail in streetlights anymore. These new LED lights burn out all detail on film I find.

Down the Terrace

Old railings at Neptune Terrace, Sheerness, England.
Taken two years ago now, this shot was an accident. I wanted to capture the highlights from the sun over the railings but got the depth of field too shallow. Now the more I look at this picture the more I like it.

Beach Hut Living

Minster Leas beach, Isle of Sheppey, England.

I was taking pictures of the seafront when I spotted this couple at this beach hut. This image appeals to me because of the gentlemen mowing the grass, and his wife was doing the spring cleaning, obviously a home from home.

The Governor’s

Three years ago I started taking shots of dogs, inspired by the images of dogs taken by Photographer Elliott Erwitt. My wife and I came across these two ladies with their dogs on Sheerness seafront, England.
These two feisty Chihuahuas gave me a stand off, as they didn’t like the me or the camera! Later after processing I hadn’t noticed their boy who was on the wall bored waiting as we all chatted.

A Summer’s Day

I spotted this elderly gentleman sitting on the seafront looking across the Thames estuary out to Southend on Sea on a very dull, cold July day. Typical English weather, it’s no wonder we Brits are always talking about it!

A-B-SEA

I saw this gifts and second hand shop in Whitstable high street, England back in 2016. Whitstable being a seaside town, it was rather appropriate, if not somewhat corny with these chairs outside this shop.

Racing the tide

Dragged out of my archive, taken August 2016 at Whitstable beach, England. People walking back along a sand bar as the incoming tide returns and that day, oh boy did the sea come back quickly.

Number 3

For the life of me I cannot remember where exactly I took this shot! I thought it was Gacé, France but having looked on Google Street View, apparently not.

Anyway it was taken in Normandy, because I liked the dilapidated beams and window frames of this house and the typical front step of many Normandy houses.
