TAKING PHOTOS OF PEOPLE TAKING PHOTOS OF A SUNSET IS MORE INTERESTING THAN TAKING PHOTOS OF THE SUNSET!!!
YET ANOTHER NICE SUNSET ON BRIGHTON BEACH
I was down at Brighton seafront the other day, walking the dog and checking out what there was to be checked out.
When you live by the sea, it is sometimes nice to visit it of an evening you see.
As seems to be an inevitable inevitability, there was a really lovely sunset. Not sure if there is always a nice sunset on Brighton beach, or if there is always a nice sunset on any beach. Or perhaps I am just lucky and always see a nice sunset when I visit. Or, bare with me here, perhaps there is something about my magnetic field or sunny aura that creates a nice sunset!!!
Anyway, as mentioned in a previous post, I have had my fill of taking photos of it. Done and done – can’t be bothered no more.
WATCHING OTHER PEOPLE TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS IS SOMETIMES MORE SATISFYING THAN TAKING THE IMAGE YOURSELF
BUT…what I have always been interested in, is watching other people taking photographs of the sunset. Brighton is particularly fruity for this hobby as an army of semi-professionals seem to descend every evening and carefully compose their scene which comprises of:
A) The Sunset – preferably reflected in the sea
B) The dilapidated West Pier glistening in the evening light
C) Some seagulls either flying or standing in the shores of the water
D) Maybe a person silhouette
E) The high rise buildings of shoreham forming a backdrop
Get all five and your on to a winner.
So, my new favourite thing to photograph on Brighton beach is not the lovely sunset – but the lovely people taking a photograph of the lovely sunset.
See – sometimes people are more interesting than places!!!
