Let’s start this post by saying that on one such bright day I shouldn’t have used a fast film. But I did, because the film was already in the camera – I had loaded it at the end of my gloomy holiday in the West – and because on the day in question I didn’t want to go out with another camera.
I got a little bit of white clipping here and there, but I think that was kind of inevitable shooting so close to the sea bouncing all the light.
I love the soft appearance of these ladies admiring the seascape from the East Pier of Dun Laoghaire Harbour, but most of all that I accidentally caught one scratching her back.
The more I look at this sculpture of a sea urchin (Ed. Mothership by Rachel Joynt), the more I like it.
So I broke the rules and increased the exposure but don’t you agree with me that nothing says Summer like slightly overexposed images?
