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!

Lets make Tracks

I like heavy plant, this was begging to be snapped…

It’s in Hove Actually!

Walking the mutt this morning, I found this in Hove Actually!  Perhaps the Artist lost his / her Sat Nav, or they just fancied tagging somewhere in Hove…

England.  Brighton Actually, found deep in Hove Actually!

Two Dog’s

I didn’t go looking for this building, Iv’e past it more times than I can remember and not really taken any notice of it.  How could I go past and not snap it up!  It was an old stable sighted high up on a hill in Brighton.  Could be Regency but probably Victorian. Beuatiful cast moulded dog heads in moulded frame fixed to the stable doors.

The Stable doors, I think its only storage now.

End of stable building.  In contrast to this building, a new trendy development has been constructed opposite this image.

These are great mouldings fitted to the stable doors, let the mouldings do the talking.  Lovely local history…

Folding Door

I like these folding doors, could do with a bit of TLC or not!  Rustic charm.  Hove Street, Hove.

Just liked the contrasting colours and materials…
