Obligatory Snow Blog Pos…

…no, I can’t stay cynical over this: IT’S SNOWING! IN BRIGHTON AND HOVE! WOOHOO!

I’ve only been living here for around a year and a half, so had not yet experienced Brighton and Hove in the snow. Today… that has changed! I decided to take my camera with me and take some photos of my adventure.

Photos qualify as creative and thus as an excuse to write this blog post, right? Good.

I’ll try to be as “arty” as possible when describing them:

Here I highlight the true equalising force of the blanket of snow – regardless of that covered, be it on living plant life or pebbles formed of rocks millions of years old, the same beauty is portrayed once snow is… WOOOH IT’S SNOW AND IT LOOKS COOL!

I view these photographs (or digital wonderment captures, as I call them) as one single piece, as they illustrate the power of framing and position to evoke a sense of scale of an obj… LOOK I MADE A SNOW MAN ON THE BEACH! He’s called Samuel. And he’s very pleased to meet you.

Using the snow as my muse I carefully reposi… HOW CRAZY IS ALL THIS SNOW? OH MY GOD YOU GUYS! AND LOOK, YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE THE SEA WITH ALL THE SNOW IN THE AIR! AND LOOK AT THAT SNOWY MOUSTACHE! HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS!

Er…

Semiotic?

Yes, that’ll do.

Also, I attempted to make a video with a live commentary of my experience of it pelting with snow on a windy Hove seafront. This went… about as well as could be expected:

The full set of my snow photos is on my Flickr photostream.

Right, I suppose I should get on with some work now, really 🙂

SNOW!

A Trip to Brighton Beach

Yesterday morning I packed a sketchbook and pencils and headed off to Brighton Beach.

You’ll probably be utterly gob-smacked at this, but in my opinion trading my laptop and office desk for a sketchpad, pebbles, waves, sunshine and a gentle breeze was a brilliant idea.

I managed to get a fair bit of planning for my future Voice Over world domination (read: “reasonable success”) done, along with a little bit of pencil sketching and a fair few photos.

I thought I’d share some of the photos with you, as I attempted to be a little arty with them.

I call the series “Photos of Some Pebbles on Brighton Beach”. I think it’s pretty catchy:

1/4: Pebbles
Pebble Photo 1/4

2/4: Hillside
Pebble Photo 2/4

3/4: Out to Sea
Pebble Photo 3/4

4/4: Rubbish
Pebble Photo 4/4

I think I prefer 3/4, but I’m not sure. Whatcha think?

Toodles,

Pat
