Dungeness – The End of the World

Images

This weekend I took my intrepid band of photographers to Dungeness. I had not been before and it was a little bit of a diversion from street photography, but I tried to keep ‘on theme’ as much as possible with William Egglestone’s landscapes as inspiration, while wanting the guys to just fill their boots (and their memory cards) with all that Dungeness has to offer – desert, sea, caresses of fishing boats, a light house, a power station, a quirky community…

I happened to be test driving my brand new shiny and super sexy Fujifilm X-T10 with the 16-50 kit lens. Normally used to shooting with a prime 50mm on my Canon 60D it was a bit of a shock to the system to shoot wide, so the pictures I ended up with are a somewhat different to my usual street style, and not just for content. But I fell in love with the Fujifilm X-T10 and am awaiting delivery of a 35mm prime to get my ‘street’ ON!

Needless to say the group of photographers from my Meetup group proved to be awesome companions on our photographic expedition by train and public bus to Dungeness from London. The weather treated us exceptionally well and while that sky was blue, I chose to shoot in black and white. I cant wait to see what the group came up with from the day, and I will be posting the best ‘sets’ soon. Watch this space.
