Back in Blighty

London may be synonymous with England to most outside the UK, but I spend my time far away from the big smoke. Living in an English seaside town is like living in a time warp.

Sepia-hued days in winter and Kodachrome in summer.

These photographs are from one afternoon, and I feel there’s a risk, photographing here, of producing a Martin Parr-esque view of the place. Although I love his work, his cynical eye makes me feel rather uncomfortable, so I’m going to try to produce work that shows a bit of empathy.

  1. Your photos have a pretty, semi-nostalgic feel to them.
    I too live in an English seaside town and sometimes I think that my ‘summer ‘ photos are so pretty that anyone looking at them would feel horribly jealous. I don’t mean I’m a good photographer, just that some days everything looks so pretty.

    The English sea side at its best when hot is 75F and it is time to don a swim suit and brave the icy water!
