Jodie

Photoshoot I had with Jodie on 8th June 2009.

All shot with natural light from a window in my house. The lens flare in the first one (which you can click on for a better view) was Photoshopped in.

Gulls

I spent some time in town on Sunday, just taking photographs. At the harbour, there were huge amounts of gulls ..... all different ages and varieties.

Here are two of them ....

Memories .....

Just up the coast from where I live, there used to be a fantastic outdoor swimming pool/paddling pool/boating pool complex. The pool was tidal - filling from sea - and always freezing cold. We didn't have a car when I was small, so we very seldom managed to get there, but when we did, it was fabulous. It closed a long, long time ago, but you can still get into the complex to look around. Tim and I went there on Sunday - the first time I have been back since I was 11 years old! It still looks as I remember it, except that it is very run-down and the water in the pools is very dirty, not having been filtered for years and years. It's still a great place to visit though.

As usual, remember to click on each pic to get a bigger version!

This arch is just outside the complex.



This shot shows the various areas within the complex. Because of foreshortening, the true size of it all cannot be appreciated. Suffice to say, it's rather large! lol The area where the cliff is reflected, was the boating pool and the area of water beyond that, was the actual swimming pool and it's huge!




Tim, with the old Art Deco-style building that used to house the shop, restaurant/cafe and toilets. So sad to see it in the almost derelict state it is now.




I saw this flower (Sea Thrift) and wanted to take a pic. As I focused, I noticed a (rather horrific-looking) fly on it ..........
