I love old black & white postcards and the thought that someone went around the UK taking photos of places that some people had never heard of, let alone visited. In days before the car was common place and most travelling was done via steam trains puffing up and down the countryside, someone was out there tugging around great cameras. I have to thank them, as in some posts I like to add some early before images, especially if a building or a view has changed considerably. But its easy now, with the aid of a car, lightweight cameras and not forgetting phones, that so many people use now. Which brings me to the fact that I have nearly come to the end of sorting through my old iPhone photos and I realise that those old black and white postcards did and do have an effect on the way that I take photos. I just wonder what makes other people, take the images that they take.
Below are just some of the postcard type photos that I shot of the Welsh coastline in 2010, which were taken with my old iPhone, plus a couple of shadows 🙂
