Bournemouth Beach 1

On Sunday the 22nd of January, Aide Gomez Miguelez and I visited the main beachfront at Bournemouth during the morning. The light did not last long and changed rapidly, and the shoot suffered further from the cold wind, affecting my ability slightly, to fiddle with lens changes and adjustments to the tripod. Fortunately a small number of […]

Below is a selection of material captured from the shoot. The pictures of properties are split according to which property they belong to. […]

After travelling with a group from my university I was able to take some shots of the central bonfire and fireworks display. The Bonfire was easily the most interesting subject at the event, but the fireworks display […]
