I loved the way the bird got in on the act
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Motion.”
It was only an hour, killing time whilst I waited to pick up a print. I wandered onto the pier, which was full of early season punters, I spotted the donkeys in the distance through the railings; I watched as families played and kids dug in the sand; dogs ran for frisbees; the big wheel turned slowly, mostly empty; the wurlitzer spun with its sole couple screaming, old men sat with mugs of tea and doorstep sandwiches; the steps, still wet from the sea, became makeshift seats, the sun shone and it looked like summer was on its way. It was a proper Blackpool afternoon
Old locks, new locks, rusty locks, shiny locks, single locks, double locks, coded locks, frayed locks, unlocked locks, chained locks, padlocks, every type of lock keeping bikes safe in Amsterdam.
I first thought of boats, but then remembered this shot of a paraglider. I love the contrast of the balloon agains the cotton wool clouds – and really, they’re all afloat….
I visited Havana, Cuba, in 2012. As a photographer, it was the most exciting couple of weeks of my life: there was such colour and vibrance all around – the people, the buildings, the cars, the streets – the opportunities were endless.
I caught this old guy, taking a break whilst the hustle and bustle went on around him.
