When the tide goes out on a gently sloping sandy beach accompanied by a subtle on-shore breeze, and water gets trapped in the sand’s wrinkles, and the light is just right, then there are images to be found.
This was shot on B&W film on the coast just north of Blackpool in the 1970s. It’s still one of my favourite images that did rather well in exhibitions; the result of right place, right time.
I have simply photographed the original exhibition-sized print and just tweaked the digital image in Photoshop. It’s another Post in the ongoing Print Archive series – click the link to see others – or click here to see the first Post in this series with an introduction to this process of breathing new life into old work without resorting to the complicated process of negative scanning.
