The benefits of not sleeping

The benefits of having a bad night and not sleeping very well is that you get to go out in what feels like the middle of the night but is really 5:30 on a lovely Sunday morning..it was quite chilly and crisp this morning so in anticipation of the supermoon eclipse due tonight I draggedContinue reading “The benefits of not sleeping”

red & black

I don’t take many  photographs of sunsets cause as have said before I don’t feel I can do justice to the beauty of nature but when I was out after dinner yesterday I stopped and had breath taken awayas the sun slowly sank into the sea. Thinking quickly to get something totally different than theContinue reading “red & black”

Sea Fog (fret) & Street Photography

What a fabulous stroke of luck I had earlier this week, after an early morning planning exhibitions and spaces with a talented friend in Blackpool I thought would wander down to the prom and try to capture some street photography, families enjoying the first warm days of spring and the last few days of halfContinue reading “Sea Fog (fret) & Street Photography”

A long walk on the beach in the sunshine and once again I found myself lying flat on the damp sand in order to capture these elegant sand fences. The simplicity and repetition soothes this mad creativity that is crowdingContinue reading “wire & wood”

a post about posts

I love my town, It has to be the best part of the coast and this post is about posts…wooden posts or sand fences used to protect the sand dunes..
