Summer Snacks Off Limits For Winter At Severn Beach, Gloucestershire.

Well a fun day was had by all today. I woke up and marvelled that the sun was shining and so decided on a trip to the seaside....slightly more distant than I would have liked but a two hour drive later we were there on the north coast of Somerset at a place called Minehead. I had packed two cameras, the Holga and the Hasselblad, unpacked the car loaded up with film only to find that I had forgotten to bring the bloody light meter! The exact words were F#@k, Bo##$c?s and T#ts! Then, surprisingly for me I relaxed and thought....hell, I have the Holga that I point and shoot with no control, I've been taking photographs for over 30 years, I'm shooting on negative if I can't shoot without a meter I might as well drown myself at sea....and I'm here typing so I guess I didn't do that. It did kinda put me out though I have to say.

Today's photo was taken the last day the sun shone prior to today at a sleepy neglected place called Severn Beach. For a little more information on the place click here. It is a place that we visited often as kids as it was the closest place that could be called the seaside....well when I was 10 I was so easy to convince ..now I look and wonder how I was so gullible.

OK guys Holga shots are at the Photomedia Centre 2006 Holga Show. Get over there NOW! Go on, get over there. Then use some of that Christmas cash to buy yourself one.
