26 fridays/week 14/midtones

West Wittering is our closest beach and we truly love it there. It is not wild or especially beautiful nor is it reliably hot and sunny (and when it is you can’t move). It sits on the English Channel and for me could not be a better location for this weeks subject – midtones. So often our trips there have been… well.. grey. Luckily this has never influenced our enjoyment,    not one bit.

both these images bring me a quiet joy for different reasons.

he had been in the water for hours alone with the waves. happy. and thats where he wanted to be left.  and not photographed. for me this picture is filled with his love of the sea and that feeling of  being completely alone in it’s vastness. what i love about the sea also.  it is filled with that bliss-filled solitude that can only be experienced when playing with the salty waves. where the rest of world can just go away.

the second image. taken later in the day, with his dear friend.

pamela joye - indeed. the sea. the beach. a place where mid tones are in abundance on the right kind of day. and i’m one of those that so loves a gray beach day. there’s something quiet about it that’s appealing. and that’s exactly how these images feel. quiet. observant. vast. and a longing to hold onto this time together.

Sara Kelly - These are so quiet and so isolated. Not really lonely, just contemplative. It feels like his mood matches the day, and the photograph matches both.

linda - Hi Lili, lovely images. I can feel the wind, hear the crash of the waves, and the hope that this day will never end. Beautiful in every way.
