Taken at the same beach as my previous upload, a rather strange concrete wind-break and some medieval-style wooden benches. Reminded me of thrones with their very high backs.

The weather here continues to be foggy, misty, 10/10ths low cloud coverage and generally miserable...dreich... so I was grateful for the days in Folkestone which enabled me to get some half-decent images.

Many thanks for all the recent comments.

Thanks for bothering.

Love the shallow dof and the harsh work done on this shot. Suits perfectly.

They can't be thrones, there's no hole for the chamber pot! TongueGrin Definitely something Norse about the image though... could quite easily see Noggin the Nog wandering into view.

Clearly I have misjudged Folkestone - this looks most interesting, I can imagine it used for an arranged shoot. I like the way you have used the curve and (surprise!) the extreme dof. Very graphically mysterious.

Not thrones you'd want to sit on for any length of time, a bit hard on the bum! Good use of depth of field, the mono conversion making the scene look very stark Wink

Ooh this is good. Empty chairs always seem to be living in a sort of sad limbo, waiting to be occupied again. These are really quite eerie. Gazing out to the left, towards the past, memories, regrets. Beautifully done, at all stages, the taking and the making.

I see exactly what you mean about Noggin, Dave! There is a distinct Norse feeling here.

Deserves the Award, Malc...( sorry but I've already given mine Blush )... excellent in every way.
Somehow I'm not sure I'd want to be there in the dark.
