There is the old saying that a picture’s worth a thousand words. I think we underestimate it. I see value to stories and am starting to think that I should maybe take a moment to listen…
I have leading lines addiction and a bit of a wander around Gloucester Quays only reinforced that conclusion…
I.. Just.. Couldn’t.. help myself!
There is no greater beauty that seeing nature at work, right in front of you.
The tiny maelstrom caused by the receding wave on the beach at Kimmeridge bay, a brief moment on a beautiful afternoon but, within that small current lies the nature of the universe. The significance of that is not lost on me. I could walk less than 15 steps from this point and see an ammonite, fossilized in the sedimentary rock for hundreds of millions of years. It’s perfectly proportioned segments spiraling away from a midpoint, governed by the very same laws that created this scene. From the mini maelstrom to the source of every photon captured.
This, for me, is why I do what I do!
The Universe know’s what it’s doing, let’s treat it nice and let it do it’s thing!
I need to cover a couple of caveats before I get into this blog post.
Firstly, I am a Landscape photographer and, on occasion, will hop over a gate or two to get a different composition.
Secondly, I will always be respectful of the land and those who tend it.
Thirdly, I’m really not very good at confrontation, and if my friendly (yes, I know you’re going to have a pop) “Hello!” is met with a passive aggressive. “Can I help you?”
“No, not really…” (I’m stood in this wonderful field with a camera and I know what I’m doing) was probably not the right response. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I think he thought I was someone that I’m not and my back was put up (wrongly because it was his land after all) by his demeanor.
It wasn’t all bad though, we had a moment of reverse selfies…
I wonder what he’s going to do with the photo of me?
Oh, and the dog scared Bejesus out of me too!
