The odd shot

Every now and again an image comes along that just seems to reflect a place, event or period in your life.

While putting together a few more images for the new B&W section i thought about a photo i took while on Anglesey, North Wales in 2003. As i wandered along the coast i came across a pair of boots that had obviously been washed overboard from a boat and found themselves on the pebble beach. How far they had floated is anyone's guess but they could have travelled miles along the welsh coast with the strong currents that flow in the Menai straits. The fact that the boots were still together obviously gave them buoyancy.

The photograph wasn't the best taken that day but for some reason i always remember it and it always brings a smile to my face. The pair of boots were left for the next tide to take and who knows....maybe someone else photographed them further down the coast, washed up yet again by the tide.
