Despite being a familiar and favourite walk, the seafront from Eastney to South Parade Pier always rewards patience and observance with something new. Sometimes its just the way that the light seems to draw out hidden colours from the landscape.
Sometimes its a small detail that catches the eye- a painted butterfly in an old gun emplacement.
At other times, peoples’ interactions with the landscape prompt questions of why, and what’s going on. The photographer capturing the image within the image. The ceremony in the Solent.
Sometimes its slowly crumbling structures on the beach. Legacies from an earlier time, slowly fading into grey.
