A day at the seaside

By franken
I suppose that I'm lucky to be able to stroll over to the seaside. I live about a mile from the main beach at Barry Island. I'm not that keen on going there in the summer months, Autumn and winter are my favourite times. These were taken yesterday.

Particularly like the balance of #4/#5. Now, if only they had sat at the other end of the bench Smile

Nice varied selection of images.

Love the variation of these shots but got to go with V4.....
You should have put this up as the main pic & called it "The Overhang"
I wonder if she realised.......

Some superb chances for candids (even in summer I suppose - but I know what you mean about resorts in season)

I agree that 4 is good, but V2 is the one for me, with a crop to the top. He must have been reading the news to her when she nodded off out of boredom!
I, too, live by the sea, but avoid the "commercial side". I might just venture down there, though, having seen these pictures.

Loads of subject matter on your doorstep Ken, very well done, like no 2, so relaxed and totally oblivious, fine images, Adrian

A great fun capture Ken, I miss the sea, it's such a performance to get there now my dog is so old and I don't like putting him in kennels all the time. So yes you are lucky that you can go any time and get colourful shots like this, nice one,

V5 is my favorite...such good tension between the subjects. V1....is the fish holding a machine gun in self defense?
