This weekend Fraser (my best-man-to-be and
arch-enemy friend of old) visited so we could go wedding suit shopping with my dad, my brothers, and Hannah’s dad. Success – we found some suits in a suit shop! Who’d have thought? I dunno why women make such a fuss about shopping 😉
So with time to spare, and the promise of a nice-looking sunset, Fraser, Hannah and I headed up to Severn Beach, which isn’t a beach at all, but actually a large mud flat strewn with old tyres and lumps of concrete. Fraser is a fan of industrial architecture and Severn Beach offers lots of industrial buildings, an estuary, a railway and two motorway bridges. Civil engineering heaven!
I took two Canon FD-mount 35mm cameras, one loaded with colour film and the other loaded with black & white, and a rucksack of various lenses that can be used on either camera. The interesting surroundings and spectacular sunset didn’t disappoint and I rattled off a couple of rolls of film – Fraser likewise with his pair of Pentax-mount SLRs.
