Pigeon Post

Pigeon post

Got up early and went out for what ended up being a four hour walk with the camera around Hastings today. Didn’t take as many shots as last week but still think I got a few I’m pleased with. Noticed this tucked away up on the west hill.

Hope you’ve all had a pleasant weekend.

Another shot from last weeks early morning photo walk.

I believe this site was temporarily used as an allotment and the reason for the word grow being on the fence, rather than it being just some random word someone decided to paint. The site now lays empty.

Boyley’s cradle

Boyley's cradle

This is the first cradle (the big round bit) to be built in the UK and can be found at the Boyley skatepark, White rock gardens, Hastings.

The park is named after local BMX rider Richard Ball (known as Boyley) who died in a motorcycle accident in 2002.

Skate till you break

Skate till you break

Got up early today to take a photo walk around Hastings. I decided to wander up to the local skate park as I’ve not really taken the time before to go shoot there. Took a bunch of shots before I found this piece of busted board, happy with my find I proceeded to take a number of compositions with it. This is one of my faves.

A word of warning though, Chuck Taylors’ are not best suited to slightly wet concrete, as yours truly went and slipped and bashing camera and knee. Luckily I seem to have gotten away with minimal damage to my camera but not so for my jeans which now have a lovely hole in.

As much as I love to shoot a colourful landscape, so too do I love to shoot a gritty mono.

A walk around the backstreets is well worth the effort as it can lead to some interesting shots, if mundane and dirty are your kind of thing.

Its amazing what you can find when you go off the beaten track.
