An Empty Beach On A Dull Day Can Be Quite Inspiring!

For whatever reason i quite like to not have people in photos a lot of the time. Maybe it’s the desolate non human element?
The other day whilst up in Filey, on the Yorkshire coast, with my mate Gary it was really good to see the almost empty beach on dull and drizzly afternoon. There were a few people around but mostly it quite desolate which i found inspiring, no one to distract the photo. It’s interesting here to note that in my last post it was actually a woman walking her dog that really made the photo, so it’s a lot about seeing what is going to work best, but i do really like emptiness of people.

The greyness of the day screamed black and white to me.

 

I loved the empty greyness of the beach which really complimented the sky.

I liked the way these old wooden posts lead the eye to the post just visible in the distance. There's also a lot of contrasty effects going on with the posts, pools of water, the sand and sea in the distance, and then the sky.

About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
