Something strange on the beach

I was cycling along the cycle path to the Longrock area of Penzance on Sunday, when I noticed something distinctly unusual happening on the beach.


When I got a little closer, it turned out to be a very long row of people.


The person on the right hand side of this photo was standing at a tripod, so I assume that this was part of an art project, rather than a spontaneous “line mob” on a showery Sunday afternoon.


If anyone knows anything about this, I’d love to hear about it, and see the end result. Please leave a comment if you can.

[Update] Simon Reed suggests that this was one of artist Hamish Fulton’s Communal Walks, and I reckon he’s right. Mystery solved. Thanks, Simon!


Digging for Bait, Swansea Bay

I often see silhouetted figures out on the edge of the tide digging for bait, toiling away filling buckets of ragworms and lugworms. I’m glad that I was able to capture this image, my first with a telephoto lens (Canon FD 70-210mm) – I like the bands of colour and the tiny contrast of the yellow bucket in the centre of the frame.
