Bleak Nobbys

I got this shot at Nobbys Beach a few weeks ago with my Samsung Galaxy phone, and I’m still quite chuffed about it. I feel it has a bit of a  ‘Mark Rothkoesque’ feel to it. The high noise of the sensor just adds to the atmosphere. Not sure if the lifesaver’s board at the right-hand side adds to, or detracts from, the shot.

Anyway this just confirms that an interesting photograph doesn’t have to be an optically good photograph. When I was a youngster in the scouts I learnt how to make a pinhole camera. Now perhaps I should start shooting Newcastle with one of those!
