Quiet documentary image

The light on the beach is almost always interesting and whilst out walking this morning I shot a few frames of a small bunch of flowers tucked behind a memorial plaque to four young local surfers on Boscombe Pier. I guess that I would call this a documentary image and it is yet another different way for me to shoot a beach picture. For me the photograph is a great deal stronger for having the back of the gentleman in the frame.

Tech stuff: Fujifilm X100S, 1/170th of a second at f11 on 320 ISO. RAW file processed through Adobe Camera RAW in Photoshop CC2014.

    1. Over Christmas and the new year lots of small bunches of flowers appeared on memorial benches around the town and along the seafront. I don’t remember seeing as many in previous years. There are literally hundreds of memorial plaques on benches down here.
