Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside…

2 Aug

The second week of our mini-moon…

Sun-soaked days. Me with my cameras. Him with freckles on his nose.

Going nowhere fast… just wandering, wondering, pondering.

Watching the waves rise and fall…

Rolled up jeans and bare feet, shoes dangling from our fingers…

Playing the 2p falls without a care in the world.

Seeing the sun set on the sparkling sea…

Strange how much brighter everything seems.

*****

After leaving the Isle of Wight, we went to Brighton…

And there I did some more snapping with my Diana.
I’m still getting to grips with my little plastic wonder
but I have to say I’m rather pleased with these shots…

The next one is my favourite I think and
my first attempt at double exposure…

Ok, maybe this is my favourite shot…
my now husband silhouetted against the sun.

I picked up these Diana shots on Friday
and if you could wish yourself back somewhere
we’d have been there in the blink of an eye.

Think the time has come to start
planning our actual honeymoon.

    Beautiful Dianas! She does love a fairground. And I like the eerie feel of the top two taken on the beach. You’ve inspired me to bust mine out again… x

    Aww, Brighton looks fab.

    The next time I see you, I’ll bring my Diana and you can show me how to get the film out without ripping it and losing all of my hen weekend photos…

Leave a little love...
