A day at Whitby

By Mavis
I've been tidying drawers again and found this image of Whitby Yorkshire . Taken on my OM2 Wide angle 28 lens Kodak Film ISO 100 plus polariser, year 1990 .. I used to stay in Bridlington for two weeks with Wilf at his dear Sister Joyce's house. We went out for day trips most interesting where we found ourselves. This was a wonderful day & we walked & walked !!! Hope you like it.

Well I liked it so much I've used it as my wallpaper . Matt came in & said oh I do like that and proceeded to show me how to do large pics for printing !3rd printer I've had in 2 weeks, no wonder I'm confused. Think I'm getting to grips with it I said you'd better write it down. Then he said you've cut some of this one off. Didn't you put it into 5x7 mode Doh I said. Hate those frames you do he muttered, so here you are just the image as it came from the scan . You get just a bit more for your money . "Know what I mean 'Arry"

A fine wide angle composition, the foreground sets it off nicely.

Takes me back in various ways, this is so obviously a film image. The reality of a generation ago.

What a lovely find for you Mavis and all the happy memories.
Lovely colours and o that was the time when film was king, sad in some ways but now there's always the delete and it does not cost as much as then very nice to see this well taken image, nice one.

All people see things differently.

When Mike the happy snapper visited here with his camera he walked down to the waters edge and took a shot of the colourful buildings across the river and made a very good job of it.

Later in the story Mavis one of my favourite photographers on here - takes a few extra minutes to have a look around and makes good use of the colourful nets captured here to produce what is known as excellent foreground interest and also includes the colourful buildings across the river so walks off with the award for a good seeing eye in this case.

One not to walk past without taking a shot. Smashing.

Oh buoy this is a fine composition and I love the array of colours and foreground detail. I think this one would make a great jigsaw
