Rough sea at Seaford in August 2009

I could not believe my luck, I had to drop Ruth at Seaford so she could help at work, leaving me to go to the beach on a very windy day to find it was high tide. The sea was incredibly powerful and I had to be careful to keep the lens pointing away from the wind so as to avoid spray messing it up. The serated breakwater looked like a computer memory chip with the water flowing over it...

My dad

Sadly, he passed away on Saturday 29 August 2009. He had dementia and it reduced him to a shadow of what he was. His trade was as a carpenter and he was old school, very few power tools, mostly hand tools. I hope to keep some of them but I would struggle to do them justice!

Wood saw from the Great War

This wonderful object was used in the First World War by the grandad of my managers wife and is perfectly usable even though its nearly 100 years old!

Dad building his porch in the summer of 1986

I`m glad I took these photos as it gradually took shape, and the last photo was taken recently.

Sunset from Alciston

Three photos stitched together. Taken with my new 16 - 45 lens.

Our old house demolished by a bomb (1943)

We`d seen a photocopy of this photo but not the original so thanks to Mumsie for finding it for us. It is taken from behind our old house, 3 Brightland Road, and shows it totally destroyed. It was sad to find that Henrietta Hellebon aged 46, was killed in the blast.
