Crosby Beach, 11.30 ish? Sunday 20th May – beautiful. Quiet, warm, very gentle breeze. Just had to take my shoes off and walk along the water’s edge. Often call by to see how the Iron Men are doing (Antony Gormley’s Another Place) and it’s generally more interesting with strong clouds and weather. Today, however, was bright and hazy. Couldn’t see Wales at all. But lovely. A wonderful opportunity for some photography. Here are some shots.
When looking back at this photograph of my feet, I liked the play with light – is it coming from the right or left?
I liked the more abstract elements in the picture with the steps- strong diagonals contrasted with the softer, more flowing tones of the waves.
This image reminded me of Lowry and his silhouetted figures. Each figure seems to be in an isolated state. I loved the little boy pondering the water moving around him – it’s so calm you can’t even call them waves.
I wasn’t looking to focus on the Iron Men, but you can just see some of them emerging from the water in the distance.
