Lazy Hazy Afternoon
Taking a brief indoor breather from the first Great British Bank Holiday Weekend of the year - this finds us with the extremely illogical urge to spend the maximum possible time twigging about in the sun (after only getting out of longjohns and slippersox a week ago) and reaching critical dehydration and 3rd degree sunburn point within ... what? ... a couple of hours? ...
Never fear ... Us Brits, we work through the pain ... We've perfected Back to Work Lobster Red.
So, while the calamine lotion dries to a chalky finish, I just wanted to post this pic from yesterday ...
It's possibly the most beautiful photo I've ever taken-by-mistake!
Looks all clever clogs misty & slow shutterspeedy, when in reality it's just an extreme zoom, facing into the hazy sun, guessing a bit what was in frame (too bright to see screen, grrr ...) and trusting to intelligent auto!
I love how this wretched wrecked burnt out old skeleton of a west pier still dominates our horizon so hauntingly.
I think my new camera and I are finally getting to know each other a little better.
