Lockdown let-out, grandparents, grandchildren, ankle deep bathing; ice cream vending, fish, chips, flags and fags; motorbikes, motorhomes, winter coats, T-shirt zone; sun, prams, double yellow lines, windbreaks, break wind, dogs, and breathing. Easter.


After several more months of the 3rd Covid lockdown, Easter weekend was the first time many people were allowed to venture out for a day trip to the beach and with the sun shining it was consequently busy. I like this image as it represents the colour of a summer blue sky, the purity of fresh sand to walk on, the expectation of a second step, the subtle crunching feel of underfoot damp sand grains rubbing against each other, and because it was the minimalist imprint of what looked like a slightly over optomistic womans summer shoe in April.
