Fishy Business

I’ve finally started to have a good long look at the photographs that I took on our family campervan trip over a year ago now. Some are ones that jumped off the back of the camera at me, and others have been a bit of slow burn. I’ve created a page solely for the photography from that trip (no campervan talk) and I am in the process of slowly adding photographs to it.
To “celebrate” this fact, I’m giving away prints and postcards of photographs that I publish on the site.

Whilst preparing for a talk that I was giving at this year’s Patching Art’s Festival, I came across what I guess can best be described as an accidental project – a project that I didn’t consciously make, but on reviewing (some many years later) does actually hang together quite well as a collection.

Lathkill Dale Mist, Peak District

Monday saw me out on a long walk from Monyash, across to Alsop and then looping back round and up the entire length of Lathkill Dale to get back to where I started.  I wasn’t out for the photography per se, but I did take the big camera and tripod and was glad that I did for one shot alone.

Gibraltar Point, Skegness, Lincolnshire

With a stupid o’clock start (0230hrs) to catch the dawn light, Rob Knight (from https://www.rkphotographic.com/) and I set off in the dark to Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve near Skegness.  We didn’t really know the weather forecast, but I was hoping for some muted pre-dawn light as opposed to anything dramatic (perhaps the lack of sleep was influencing my hoped for choice of light).

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Last week we quickly ventured up to Scarborough, a seaside spa town in North Yorkshire. Having first stopped for coffee in the picturesque market town of Malton, we arrived in glorious sunshine, but as soon as we stepped foot on the beach a fog rolled in off the North Sea, which set the atmosphere for the rest of visit. I hadn’t anticipated doing any photography and hadn’t brought a camera – so had to make do with the camera on my phone. Proving that the best camera you have, is the one that is with you.

Cornish Boat Decay, Roseland Peninsula

Cornish Boat Decay, Roseland Peninsula

in one of my earlier posts (here), I briefly discussed the freedom that actually carrying your camera brings versus keeping it tucked away safely in your camera bag.  It allows for a level of creativity that perhaps you don’t get when you use your tripod.I came across this abandoned boat up a creek on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall in amongst boats that were in a lot better condition.  It was oddly scaffolded in to place, so despite its decay it was sat upright thanks to the scaffold structure that ran through it.  I was drawn to all the wonderful intimate details that time had inflicted(?) on the boat – I could have spent a happy afternoon going over this boat, but my family were already 15 minutes ahead of me, so I had to leave to catch up :/
