From a quick walk along the Swansea lakefront earlier. This was my hour’s exercise for the day and I thought I’d take my camera with me for the sunset. I was still able to keep my distance from people and being able to take a few pictures definitely helped my mood. Photography is a bit like therapy for me that way.
Hope everyone in lockdown is doing okay.

I had a photoshoot scheduled in Swansea yesterday afternoon but it was cancelled at the last minute. Unfortunately I was already in Swansea when I got the call so rather than just go back home I decided to shoot the sunset instead.
Originally I was going to go on to Caves Beach for the sunset but on the way I found the remains of this little pier hidden behind some houses. I loved the decay and texture and some silly litterbug had even left a bike in the water too.
I spent all of golden hour in that spot and it was a lot of fun. Ironically I used to go to Swansea quite often while we lived at Caves Beach but I’d never shot here before. I guess it shows how sometimes you need to look at somewhere with new eyes to really see it.

A hungry gull
Sits watching me;
I give you food
But you still want more
I had some time to kill while I was in Swansea recently and went to sit by the lake for a while. This seagull decided to take an interest in me while I was there… it was quite persistent and apparently very hungry! I thought it came out quite well in black and white.

Sitting with my thoughts
My mind wanders to past times
And where you are now
I was in Swansea for an appointment this morning and had some time to kill, so I went for a quick walk along the waterfront near the bridge. It was very peaceful and the water was this incredible clear blue. Definitely a nice start to the day.
