The Hastings Half Marathon 2018

A post of 26 photos. I've failed to photograph this annual event for the last couple of years - maybe, partly, because last year I was having an incredible time at the Photography Show in Birmingham. This year, it was absolutely freezing and I wimped out before everyone had gone past. However, it was nonetheless inspiring to... Continue Reading →

Or, maybe, there are so many dress up events in the town's social calendar (bonfire night, Mayday, pirates day....) that this... Continue Reading →
