First light at Hastings Pier

Took my wife to the train station earlier than usual today. At this time of year it happily coincided with the pre-dawn light. The tide was mostly out as well which was an added bonus.

A gorgeous morning I think you’ll agree.

Hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for viewing.

Happy Mondays @ Hastings Pier 17.09.16

Happy Mondays, Saturday 17th sept. (31 Photos)

Yesterday my wife and I went to see the Happy Mondays perform their 1990 album, Pills n thrill n bellyaches in full, plus some other classics thrown in for good measure. Simply put, they were fab!

We arrived pretty early on in the afternoon while the support acts were on, (one being The Orb who were also magnificent), which meant we were able to get ourselves right up against the barrier.

The rain came down for most of the preceding bands sets, getting both us and my camera rather wet. However it kept on working right through the evening despite getting soaked and not being weather resistant. The dial on the rear of the cam is a bit stiff today but a bit of silicone switch clean spray should hopefully sort that out.

I decided to convert all the pictures to mono,  as I feel it really enhances the atmosphere. As you can see, I took a good few pics of Bez, he’s such a great character and completely knows how to play to the camera. You just can’t stop yourself from taking his picture.

Lovely to see a guest appearance from Dennis and Lois too!

Hope you like them.

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!
