deserted buildings - Orford Ness

It’s been two months since I deserted my previous photo and poetry blogs to make this hybrid. In practical terms, one is easier than two and in creative terms, there is a synergy  to be had from working both aspects together here. In short I am happy with the changes!

Meanwhile I am deserting this blog for a short seaside holiday break – the UK weather is unpredictable but still I shall be trying out my Spectra polaroid, as well as taking along the Lumix camera and enjoying some much needed quietude…
…Meanwhile enjoy some ‘Silence’ from D. H. Lawrence:-

Orford Ness - deserted ordanance
“Sounds wave their little wings
A moment, then in weariness settle
On the flood that soundless swings.

Orford Ness - Suffolk
Or the wind shakes a ravel of light
Over the dead-black river,
Or night’s last echoing
Makes the daybreak shiver:

shingle beach - Orford Ness
I feel the silence waiting
To take them all up again
In its vast completeness, enfolding
The sound of men.”

  1. Hope you’ll enjoy your vacation, Laura! You can have your own “The Great British Seaside” exhibition afterwards 😀 – did you get to visit it after all?


    • The exhibition was too expensive! Am going to try and emulate but will never be on a par with Martin Parr! (the spectra film stocks were recently unavailable so only have a few shots to play with) the weather is improving here though
