My Walk this Week and the Influence of Angle

My walk this week is one I have taken many times but as always, the conditions are different every time. On this occasion it was the angle from which I was viewing things that had a strong the influence on my photography of the walk.

For instance, it may be obvious to many of you what the image above shows, but as I passed by on Swansea Bay’s wonderful expansive beach, for some reason I thought to myself, “That’s a funny thing to draw in shells on the beach” – I thought it looked like a boot! (I know, don’t ask! Lol). It wasn’t until a came round to see it from another angle that I realised it was a heart which, as everyone knows, is one of the most obvious things to draw in shells on a beach!

So my walk this week along the beach and back through the Swansea Marina is a walk well known to me, but as familiar as I am with the place, I have never found that I have lost interest in it one iota. The patterns and textures, the beach objects and art, the scattering of people, walkers, families, beach activities – all provide an endlessly fascinating and always changing scene.

    • Thank you – you’re totally right. Communication and understanding is the key to everything. Perhaps I should say communication is the key to understanding everything!

  1. I love being able to go back to the same places again and again. You really get to know them and they are never the same. They can never be. The people in them will be different, the seasons will affect the look and sound of them, and of course at the beach, the tides will erase everything cyclically and bring new things too.
