Polluting the Sea

Leica

Living next to a sea that never sleeps, each day brings another tide of plastic.

Thrown away and discarded, and happy to ignore their own waste.

Watching or Waiting

Leica

Is it a pastime or just an occupation? Watching. Waiting, or just hanging about.

Waiting for the next wave or the next passing cloud. Its something we all do with relative ease.

I see the sea on the seashore…

Leica

Walking along the sea shore in Helensurgh, the sun is out and the sky is blue.

Winter has gone and its like a new start.

A new year ahead, with lots of things to plan and do.

Leica M240, 35mm Summicron

A look…

Leica

Observation. Watching people and watching what they do.

Have you ever watched people through a window, from the outside looking in?

Going that way…

Leica

In Glasgow there are some great murals.

Painted onto buildings and under bridges. These are in an underpass, near Glasgow’s Central station.


Waiting…

Leica

Waiting.

Its one of life’s little occupations and part of every day life.

A spare tyre

Leica

Sam, my dog, made a massive find on the beach. A tyre.

How does a tyre end up on the beach? In Helensburgh?

 Its strange that an every day object can create so many questions.

There’s a always a story to every ending.

Street Beggars

Leica

In Glasgow there are quite a few street beggars. Going back a few years you would maybe see the occasional beggar, but now they seem be on most street corners.

The genuine, and I suppose the ingenue.

Whatever they are, its sad that people do have to beg. They shouldn’t have to, but when you think about it, we don’t live in an ideal world.


Clouds over the Clyde

Leica

One of the nicest things about living near water is that the weather changes quite frequently.

Sometimes for the better, sometimes not. I could spend all my days just looking out to sea and watching the sea,  and the weather changing over the River Clyde.

A day in the rain

Leica

 

Rain, rain go away, come back another day…

I quite like the rain. It washes the grime away. And I like the sound of it beating against the windows.

Glasgow, or any city come to that, are not at their most glamorous when its raining but sometimes the rain can bring some unexpected opportunities for a few pictures.
