The Hooley Brewing up!

The Hooley Brewing up!

Our ‘West Pier’ what’s left of it hanging on in , before todays Storm batters our coast again. The Brighton pier formally ‘Palace Pier’ in the background.
This shot was taken this morning, lying flat on the beach with the dog and his lead wrapped around my leg with my Sony DSC-H20 from a mile or so away in Hove ‘Actually’.
Lucky shot, because the other shots were blurred due to high winds moving me about.

Coned out of his head!

Coned out of his head!

This isn’t the best photo in the world of Cone Head, but I snapped it on the hurry. Should it stay or should it go, the cone that is! This statue and cone is a popular subject at the moment. Being a grumpy old git, well not that old, this always makes me smile when I see it. It is a constant battle between the authorities and Joe public. It gets my VOTE to stay, it needs to stay. Its a Glasgow thing…. and that’s coming from a Southerner

Life in a glazed brick wall

 

England, Worthing seafront property.

Three floors up.  Victorian white glazed brick wall ( with grime ).  Airbourne seeds or maybe bird droppings with seeds, wedged into the mortar courses, the right conditions and a Fern of sorts is produced, growing happily between courses.

Clad Whale?

Is it a Whale or a Transport museum…

It was such a grey day, the flash kicked in.  Views of the Clyde and buildings in the window reflection, heading towards the City…

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…
