On Friday, Jenifer and I found time to head down to the coast. Despite the bitter cold, we had loads of fun capturing the surf at Climping Beach. A longer post from this shoot is in the pipeline, all about shutter speeds and waves.
Time to catch up with my 365 redux. 365/37 and 39 are from 2009. Neither awfully good, but it seems I don’t take many pictures on 6th and 8th February in any year except for the year of my original project 365. In keeping with my ‘rules’, I have attempted a better edit at least. 365/38 is from 2014. I enjoy flipping reflections and cropping out the ‘original’.
A couple of years ago we spent the weekend at Climping, near Littlehampton in West Sussex. On the west bank of the Arun at Littlehampton we found this old RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) lifeboat, gently rotting on the shore. I have always been interested in the story of the lifeboats and their crew. If you’re not from the UK, you may not know about this organisation staffed entirely by volunteers who freely give their time and risk their lives to save those in peril on the sea. The bravery of these men and women over the centuries is remarkable. I can’t believe no-one has made a blockbuster movie about them yet. I wonder what stories this boat could tell if it could speak.
