Beach life at Bulverhythe

I suppose one would have to know a little of the history of British seaside towns, and specifically St Leonards, to fully understand the bedlam of Bulverhythe.

The Victorians, with their increased wealth and free time, raised the profile of the seaside and, during that period of social revolution, Decimus Burton raised the profile of St Leonards on Sea.

The ‘trendy’ area was a couple of miles to the East but, the plebeians were getting free time too and needed somewhere to go.

This area continued to develop and in 1933 a wonderful Lido was constructed which was enjoyed right through until my childhood. Then, after a period of neglect and no investment, the venue was raised to the ground in 1989. The great wasteland that still remains today signalled the end of tourism for this part of the coast however, locals still like to keep their chalets here as it is a dog friendly beach and the parking is not as extortionate as elsewhere. Some of the colonnades of the lido building can still be seen along the cycle track.

Do I need a Lee Big Stopper? I’d like to have seen some of these with a longer exposure. Getting that balanced, minimalist look is not as easy as it seems.

For some lovely examples of monochrome imagery, see Leanne’s weekly challenge here

I grabbed these shots of a storm rolling onto Bexhill beach back in June – can’t believe I forgot all about them. Excuse, again, the inconsistency in the processing – it’s where each image takes me – and, fickle friends they are, each direction is not always the best – LOL

Rye Jazz Festival in Mono

It’s that time of the week, and it’s that time of year again. Rye Jazz Festival is going from strength to strength every year and, despite a dreary day with intermittent downpours, it seemed a good time was had by all on the Saturday.

Something else that is going from strength to strength in terms of the quality of images, is Leanne Coles MMC. Don’t miss out taking a look at all the cool entries here.
