35mm: Holes Bay

Holes Bay is part of the area of Poole that has had a bit of a transformation in recent years. Part of that, is the building of a new bridge “Twin Sails”. So named as the road across the gap is divided diagonally, so when raised, it’s two triangles resemble the sails of a passing boat! Good old Wiki has a page here! I had just missed an “opening” so couldn’t wait around for the next!

I made one photo of the nearby Sunseeker boat display area. As a garage displays cars for sale this is the equivalent for boats. Further on I spotted a seagull sculpture, then it was back to the car and end of the roll!

I recently watched on You Tube an old BBC documentary, on Ansel Adams. Part of a series of Master Photographers. It’s highly recommended and here should you wish to watch it. When it got the the part about “tell us about the photo” the interviewer mentioned camera etc. Adams response was: “well yes I can tell you what camera, film and processing, or Chatter as I call it”. So from now on I think I’m going to adopt that at the end of each post where suitable:

Chatter: Leica M6, Summicron 50mm f2, Delta 100, processed in Ilford DDX 1+4 10.5 mins at 20°.

    1. Hi, I’m assuming it’s supposed to look like that and not in the process of falling down! As the bridge is supposed to look like sails when open, I’m guessing the fence is the waves?! I think I prefer the shot without the car and the one with the seagull – not sure yet! Cheers Andy
