Seats with a Sea View

For the latest  Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Any Seating  I’ve put together a series of pictures I took at three of our local coastal resorts, St Annes, Cleveleys and Blackpool, in the off-season months of winter.

Its a great time to wander around with a camera looking at the street furniture. In summer you can’t see the seats for all the holidaymakers sitting on them. In winter the traditional designs of the seaside shelters and seating can be appreciated.

I really like them. I hope you do too.

What lovely photos. I especially liked the one with the two old people sitting on the bench. We make our own plonk called “Two Old Fogies”. Can’t sell it, no one else will drink it, but it does have a label. Would you mind if I used this photo on our label. It is for our own use only. I really enjoy your work.

    Thanks Liz. Yes, do use the picture on a bottle. I’m glad you like it enough to do that! Maybe send me a picture of it? Or a blog post?
    Cheers, Helen

    Thanks Georgie. Not as colourful as Greece in summer. But great to wander around nevertheless.

I’ll definitely take those views. Wonderful entry. 😀

    Thanks Cee. I’ve been going to put these in a post since I took them in winter but never got around to it. So thanks to your challenge they’ve now been immortalised on the silver screen of my iPad .

    Thank you Suzanne. I’m pleased you like them.

Wonderful images. Very arty, the kind of shots I wish I could take.

    HMB · 11 August 2016 at 20:59

    Thanks Suzanne. If you spent as much time as I do wandering around with a camera in your hand on a cold winters day at the seaside, you’d get the same shots! But you write books instead. Now that takes loads of talent.
