Saturday was a perfect summers day, just the day for a trip to the seaside! I am normally quite easily put off these things by the thought of weekend traffic, crowds etc but I was on the verge of going totally loopy from staring at computer screens all day and night – I needed to escape, if only for the day!
We decided on Brighton (also referred to as ‘London by the sea’ in case you don’t know it) it’s about 60 miles east along the coast from us but is a totally different place in so many ways. We arrived to blazing hot sunshine, very happy,laid back people and colour everywhere!
Canon 5D MKII + 50mm f/1.4 lens
Every corner we turned there was something interesting. Literally. Every corner.
It’s a place where you can exhale and just be yourself – no matter how society normally sees you.
Don’t these girls look GORGEOUS! I am a bit of a scaredy-cat asking strangers if I can take their photo, but because I was using the quirky old Polaroid (and I noticed they were drinking champagne) I plucked up the nerve and got them to pose for me.
Oh, and you can shop! Yes, I admit, I would have gone in many more shops than I did given half the chance, but seeing as how I am trying to DE-clutter my life it’s probably as well I was with my
mean sensible husband 😉
Most photos here taken with Polaroid SX-70 + 600 film (+ND filter)
What a fab dress! If I wasn’t convinced I’d look like an oven-ready chicken in it it’s just the sort of thing I would wear.
I can’y wait to get my Lomo-LCA prints back from the lab (guess I need to send them there first). SO much colour for that film to suck up. I do love colour.
