A weekend in Southport

A little bit of everything last weekend in Southport both in terms of the weather, which was cold and also photographically with a bit of street photography, a few sunset photos, a visit to an art gallery and a firework display.

I guess it’s the variety that makes Southport a good destination for a short break at this time of year. ┬áThe AtkinsonWhitworth gallery was a great spot to shelter from the rain and enjoy the latest exhibitions. ┬áThe costumes of Vivienne Westwood pictured below formed part of an interesting display. I enjoyed the portraits of various celebrities wearing the same t-shirt against a plain grey background. It was interesting to see how they each posed and managed to make the t-shirt their own.

There was also a fabulous art exhibition featuring painting by Nahen Shoa called ‘Black Presence’ which is also worth a visit.

Here are a few photos…

In Pictures: Cornwall Beaches

I’ve not posted anything on the blog for a while but thought it was about time to add something new, so here is a quick post with a few photos from a recent visit to Cornwall.

The beaches are beautiful. Some have a rugged beauty, some have gorgeous sand and gentle lapping waves and others are great spots for capturing a sunset. Here’s a selection of pics from Newquay, St Ives and Godrevy.
