Brighton in the Autumn

A couple of days away by the sea was the perfect way to recharge in the middle of a pandemic! I’ve always liked taking pics of old sea side towns in the winter and have a soft spot for Brighton and the Sussex coast.

The Scallop at Aldeburgh

Is one of my favourite sculptures, designed by local artist Maggi Hambling dedicated to Benjamin Britten (composer who spent much of his life in Aldeburgh). It stands approx 15 feet high and can be found on the beach just up from Aldeburgh town. I love how the light changes how it looks, how clouds can darken the shadows and the sun can make the surface glimmer. As I stood setting up my camera children scurried and peaked out from under it, couples leaned up to take a selfie against it and families gathered around it.

Happy Halloween

The cracks are starting to show…

A devastating life changing event, a driver under the influence drove in to him and knocked him off his push bike and crushed his right leg which resulted in major surgery implanting a metal rod and everything in his life being put on hold. Everyone can understand and talk about the leg break, the steel rod and the healing process but the unseen is the psychological damage and torment of someone else taking away some independence and choice and changing your body and your life forever.
