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.

Anticipation

While out walking in Mote Park, Maidstone England on a Sunday morning, my wife pointed these five Border Collies out to me. Turned out the owner was out jogging with them and had stopped to check her phone while the collies eagerly awaited her next move!

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.

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.

Sunday afternoon

I took this shot back in 2013 on warm autumnal day. Taken at Leybourne Lakes Country Park in England, this image for me summed up this lazy afternoon and was one of the pictures at the start of my return to film photography.

Roadside Repair

Taken near the entrance of Barton’s Point Coastal Park, England on a warm sunny September day.

While walk along the sea wall this gentlemen stopped and began adjusting his bicycle. I was going to crop out the crash barrier plus the street lamp but having seen the angle of the curb stones and street markings, the diagonal lines add to this images appeal for me.

Anglers hope

Vierville-sur-Mer, Normandie in France, better known to you as Omaha Beach. This picture I shot as the weather closed in, moments later the heavens began to open. The view is looking out from the seafront to this pier is now joined to what was part of Mulberry A Harbour. Later on having developed the film I discovered I had underexposed the shot by a stop, but all the same I’m pleased with the resulting image.
