A nose around Hastings pier

After a long period of fundraising and hard work, Hastings pier re-opened to the public earlier this week, just in time for the holiday weekend and Hastings annual Jack in the green celebrations.

We popped on there earlier today to have a nose around and of course,to do a bit of photography. Got a few candid shots I’m pleased with too.

For more info go to http://hastingspier.org.uk/ or just get yourself down there to take a look. It’s bank holiday weekend, so no excuses!

Btw, if like me you’re into good coffee, then it’s definitely worth grabbing a cup at Billycan coffee. Situated on the left and serving coffee by Union Hand roasted. Nice!

Mono Monday-Chillin

Title-Chillin’

Ok ok so it’s Wednesday but better late that never. Lots of things going on at the Wares houshold over the past few weeks which has put me slightly behind on a few things, one being this blog, however things should be settling down again so on with the show.

Today’s shot was taken at Covent Garden London on a photo day I took with my cousin Steve. Covent Garden is a great place for photographers who want to hone their people photography skills as it’s such a vibrant and bustling location with lots of things going on at pretty much all hours of the day. Amongst all the hustle and bustle I did manages to spot this fella taking some time out while listening to some sounds and having a wee smoke. I quite like how the harsh light has produced great contrast in the background.

When I’m out doing people photography I like to have the camera switched on and ready to shoot at all times. You never know when a photo opportunity will present itself.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mono Monday ‘Tenderness’

Title ‘Tenderness’

Candid photography is not something I usually do but when I saw these two I just had to get the shot. Taken on the Millennium Bridge, with the Tate Modern in the background. I think this type of subject lends itself perfectly to being presented in black and white, giving it that ‘timeless’ quality.
