A truckload of flowers

Spotted whilst I was wandering this morning. Wanted to get in and lie down but I've seen enough cop shows to be pretty scared of getting trapped in the back of a lorry.


I got up early to go and get this sunrise eagle-eye shot of the pier. I was lucky today because there was no-one around. Normally on a Friday morning there's some folks loitering around, but the beach was mine today.

It's very difficult to predict what's going to do numbers to use the parlance of our time. That's why I believe you shouldn't care about such things and just make what you want. Build it, and they will come, as they say.

I struggle, and have struggled, with calling myself a this and a that. Having a camera doesn't make me a photographer in the same way that having a bike doesn't make me Chris Hoy. But I do feel, as I am increasingly able to use photographic equipment to make images that I see in my head first, that I may be on my way there.

Relax, I'm a little way away from an insufferable Twitter bio claiming "polymath" and "autodidact", but gaining some confidence in my ability to make things with a camera feels good. And it feels great to do it with flagrant disregard for how it will be received. Just to make something to make it and shoot it out into the world, like the first photo of a dog in space.

Please like my photos though, I live for your approval

More People By The Sea

The sun brings lots of interesting people out.


Had a savage hangover this morning so dragged my stupid ass out of bed and took my camera for a walk into Brighton. Took a tonne of photos but they were mostly crap. Got a few I liked, though. Including this delightful little piece of football-related imagery.

Then went into town and picked up some new trainers I'd ordered. I wanted something a bit ridiculous and I think I nailed it.

Misty Seafront Walk

The sea mist has been pretty intense this last week. Makes things look very creepy, and gives a nice flat light for taking photos of people, so that's what I did.
