Down on the dunes

A few days ago I was invited by a contact on Instagram to participate in an exhibition he’s planning of pinhole photography in Estonia. The plan is for the exhibition to feature images taken in deserted cities – a very common sight right now. While I have some pictures that might be suitable this gives me a good reason to get out and document our village with my pinhole camera.

I took a long walk this afternoon to do this, but the pictures won’t be ready to share here for a week or two. However, I do still have the pinhole photos I took on the beach at West Wittering a month ago.

The seaside is a great place for pinhole photography as there is always some movement in the waves and clouds which translate well into long exposure photos.

While I was there I also took some photos of the beach huts. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite get my framing right for one of them and chopped off the top of the roof. Framing pictures when using a camera with no viewfinder is always a somewhat hit and miss affair!

Thanks Tom. These were taken about 10 days before we went into lockdown so I won’t be able to get to the sea again until the restrictions are lifted. It seems like a different lifetime ago. Stay safe x
