Seaside...



I love the seaside! I love the fact that you can see all kinds of people going about there business and it provides so many photographic opportunities for us that I heartily recommend that you grab your camera and set off in search of some interesting characters.

On this day, it was a bit fresh and there wasn't as many people around as I would have liked but, this lady was made of sterner stuff and sat herself down outside a local cafe. I managed to grab this as I sauntered past...

I'm having a change around....

I decided that my old style of blog was just that....old style. So, I've decided to try out a different, cleaner look which I hope looks better.

Brighton Pier - Fine Art Dahlings....


I put a white frame around this (you probably can't see it but trust me, it's there) and decided to call it fine art. I guess that's what all the fine artists do.....

And the moral of the story is....



New York sometimes gives of a peculiar light caused by reflections off of all the tinted glass on the surrounding buildings. This isn't it but, I was stopped in my tracks by a really strange light cast across the street and I have to say, hand on heart, that I have never, never seen such a light. 

I didn't know where to start photographing. Turns out, I didn't. My sodding battery packed up on me!

I always, always carry a spare but this time, my spare was as dead as a dodo. Turns out I picked up the uncharged one (I have to get a system) and strolled out blissfully unaware. 

I could have cried....

Central London


I found this when I was out and about in Central London one day. I half expected to be approached by a security guard asking me what I was doing but, no. I wandered around for hours on end, right through the heart of London's financial district and didn't get bothered once.


Most security guards seem to be getting the hang of what they can and can't do these days. Message seems to be getting through.

Bill Stickers



Years ago when I was a kid I would often see signs stuck on a wall that said ' Bill Stickers Not Allowed'. I always found that a bit amusing because obviously, someone had stuck  up a Bill (poster) telling you that you couldn't put up a poster!!

And, in my strange mind, it amused me to wonder if there was someone called Bill Stickers and how he must have felt. I wondered if this guy was the Bill Stickers in my ramblings....
