It’s a while since I posted an image from my old Print Archive. This image was taken at Budleigh Salterton on the South Coast of England in the late 1970s. It was late afternoon and our children were carefully selecting a few of the perfectly smooth and elliptical pebble disks of which that beach is made. I spotted a pair of women deep in conversation on a pair of bizarrely orientated seats (facing different ways).
I used a wide-angle lens to maximise the foreground pebbles as the lead-in to the seating. The time of day, the position of the sun, all helped to bring contrast into the image. It was a style of B&W photography that I loved, and still do. Shooting towards the sun is guaranteed to create drama.
This image is another from a collection of images from my old Print Archive that dates from the mid 1970s to the mid ‘80s approximately and which I digitized by simply photographing the 20x16inch exhibition prints.
