Against the wall

I took this image sometime last month but had not got around to using it. I had looked at this tree many times and thought there is a shot there but just couldn’t get the composition right until sun was at a low angle between the buildings opposite.

Our spot

Plage de Deauville, France. This was the only couple to pick a spot on the sand here by the promenade. Everyone else was down by the waters edge, perhaps they just wanted somewhere quiet and who can blame them.

Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH on Kodak Tri-X film rated at ISO 800.

I’m losing my M4 for a few weeks due to a light leak, so back to the repairers.

Only the Bones

I could never get this scene quite right but this is my third attempt and I happy with the result. A hazy, overcast day at the far end of Minster Leas, Isle of Sheppey, England there is what remains of these old metal barges of which I think there’s seven or maybe eight hulks slowly succumbing to the sea. Also the posts in the background maybe part of an old pier as they are too tall to be old groyne posts.

Note to self and other dog owners, don’t let your dog take his ball with him when you go to the location of your shoot… as the little monkey wouldn’t stop barking for me to throw his soggy ball!

Cycle

The newly repainted Cycle lane catching the early morning sunlight along Sheerness sea wall, England. I was taken by the way the white lines were glowing in the light against the dark, weathered concrete.
