Wood Slick

This is by far my earliest and largest photographic project.  Most times, its better to show one or two pictures.  I am taking a chance and showing 20 pictures.  The photographs really tell the story and I hope they hold your interest.  I managed to capture these pictures early one morning going along the coast road to work.

The Cargo Ship,  “The Ice Prince” carrying Timber, ran into trouble in rough sea’s near Portland Bill, England in January 2008.  The crew where all rescued by helicopter and lifeboat, before she sank.   Timber, 33ft long planks where washed off the Ship causing a Wood Slick running from West (Portland Bill) to East (Beachy Head and beyond) of the English Channel.  “This is what I saw that morning”.

These shots taken, were on a beach stretch in Worthing a few odd miles West of Brighton & Hove, England.  2000 tonnes, washed up along the coast causing hazards on the beaches and to the shipping lanes.  Anybody lifting timber away were threatened with arrest…

A Clyde view

The River Clyde, heading away from the City centre.  Once the Hub of fine British ship building, a different scene now…

Industry vs Riverside development.

On the Industrial side.  Cranes reaching for the low grey storm clouds.

Opposite Industry, the Riverside development.  Concrete, glass, stainless steel and painted to compliment the Glasgow grey sky.  (It’s not always grey)…

Our Daily Bread

There is so much that we don’t see immeadiately, or ever, for that matter.  Hand painted signs in this instance.  This Art has been handed over to companies that make signs using computor, photographic images and plenty of plastic.  Picture taken in Stoneham Road, Hove, East Sussex, England.

The hand painted signs above, almost lost to time now…

In a few short weeks now, this sign, between the two buildings, will be out of sight and mind when the trees foliage takes over until next fall…

Stumbled across this Lady

More Street Art for your consumption.  It was not my intension to photograph this lady, I just stumbled across her by accident, lucky me!

Another Telecommunications Box, used as a Street Canvas.  This one, I found by accident in Powis Grove, Brighton. Great Art Work.  I didn’t notice the turd until it was too late.  I suppose that could be classed as a “Dog Tag”.

Two Faced…

Found this last week in Brighton, England.  “Two Faced“.
