The English Riviera

20130523-204529.jpg

As an add on to the day job, last Sunday I skittered down various motorways to Torquay for a monday AM meeting. The weather was quite clement until about 30miles from the coast when it became what I can only describe as mizzely.

I’ve never been to the English Riviera before that I remember, but it turns out it’s rather nice. If you squint tightly it does look a little like Monacco from a certain angle. The pictures I managed to take are decent enough to warrent their own post so here you go.

The following are Hipstamatic pictures, some varying light conditions raging from dull and rainy, early morning misty, sunset shiny to massively over filtered. Enjoy….

Small text break here. I’m really pleased with the last two above. The next one below is a little odd. I spotted this lying on a merge near the big wheel. A dead gull isn’t anything strange by the seaside but the precision of the twig and its almost runic symbolism make this more than passing road kill.

Another odd little seaside aside was the little clutch of original Mods and scooters gathered outside the bay side Harvester…. Enjoy here.

    Thirty years ago I spent 2 years living and working in Paignton, South Devon. Do they still sell Dogbolter beer? It was evil….

    Just a note, Adrian, to say again how much I admire your work, both photographic and artistic. You’re amazing. I’ve added your site as a link on my website (or will by tomorrow) and would be honored if you would add mine to yours.

    I particularly liked the composition in the first three photos: somehow the arcs in two and three really work.

    Keep up the incredible work,

    George
