Seaside attempt 6
Of all the 89 pictures I took in Eastbourne this has to be the most boring – even more boring than the ones I’ve posted so far. I’m thinking of entering it into the ‘Most Boring Photograph (Amateur) of 2009’ competition. I’ve studied it closely and, try as I might, I can’t find anything interesting in it. It’s a picture of a lamppost – a favourite subject of mine – with a bit of sea, a bit of beach, a lot of sky and path, a shadow, a railing and a bush. The shadow of a seagull (or possibly a pigeon or jackdaw) was entirely unintentional. There are no images of Jesus or the Virgin Mary in the clouds or shadows. It’s not even an interesting composition. I used to get into trouble at college for taking pictures like this.
