Wouldn’t have seen this, but the dog needed a walk

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…

Rocking Robin

I do like from time to time, to capture in picture, visitors to my garden.     This cheeky busy Robin hasn’t quite mastered landing on this feeder.  This Robin and its mate are frequent visitors, getting a picture is a bit of a job.  Iv’e managed to capture the Robin in flight, as best as I can.  Hope you like…

Cant wait to see this Robins offspring sometime soon!

Meet the new kid on the block

Got in Last Saturday evening, after watching Brighton vs Birmingham at the Amex.  Just started doing a bit of cooking, when I spotted the new kid on the block.  It is said that there is a decline in the population of Sparrows, we appear to have a pretty good local population, well in our local gardens anyway.  Didn’t take this little one to long to locate the feeder and water station.

Parent, with youngster…

Needing a drink…

First of many.  Nice little chap…

 

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…
