photoblog image Lynmouth


Another snap dredged up from 2008. This was taken when we dropped Helen and Andy off at their Honeymoon location and went for a wander around Lynmouth. It wasn't the best of weather!

i like this dated sort of treatment, Bill. does not look like much is going on here.
Bill Phillips: There wasn't wasn't a very nice day!
A nice photo well composed Bill. Don't like the treatment...
Bill Phillips: It was going to be a normal B&W but then I thought what the heckgrin
Avec ce traitement, on dirait une photo ancienne. Je suis sûre que les couleurs étaient belles.
Bill Phillips: It was a very dull day Martine

I suppose you made the best of a bad job, even to the extent of chucking tomato soup over the finished product
Bill Phillips: Well it was going to be black and white but that would have been too easy
It reminds me of an old postcard, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I don't think this part of Lynmouth looked a lot different 100 years ago Ginnie

Bill Phillips: It was going to be b&w but I thought what the heck!

Helen and Andy wouldn't of minded the weather. They were probably tired of the day and slept soundly.
Great composition.
Bill Phillips: They had a great time ...the weather brightened up for the rest of the week as I recall!

I smile at your term ‘dredged’ Bill. Seems quite fitting in this location.
Bill Phillips: I suppose it does chad

I note your comment about the weather, Bill. Was it a dust-storm?
Bill Phillips: Hahahahaha
Well I've got to say I rather like this effect, it ages it very nicely, one wouldn't think it was as recently as 2008, I just find it difficult to think that on my visit to Lynmouth I walked along the bottom of that harbour, and yes, the tide was out smile
Bill Phillips: It must have been a bit mucky Brian!

I just did a Google Maps search for Lynmouth to find it.

The closest I have ever been was the east: Bath or Bristol

or the the north on the otherside of the Bristol Channel in Wales.
Bill Phillips: There was a terrible flood there in 1952 and 34 people lost their lives. When you see it in the Summer it is hard to imagine that it ever happened.
My in-laws showed up at my honeymoon too. smile
Bill Phillips: We didn't turn up we drove them there and left them at their holiday cottage. Helen's sister went down to Cornwall for a few days and brought them home on her way back
thanks for the extra info about Lynmouth
Bill Phillips: My pleasure Alan. I know you are interested in people and places

I expect the honeymoon couple did not really notice the weather... I don't think I've every seen Lynmouth with the tide in.
Bill Phillips:

Here's another one
I like the treatment Bill! I've visited Lynmouth, but many years ago smile
Bill Phillips: It is a lovely place but gets very busy at times!
