So I went down to photograph the fishing boats this week - these 3 are local icons, bringing in fish and shellfish for the local community and beyond! I couldn't resist a "fine art" makeover to this shot as I think it really helps create a moody atmosphere. Let me know what you think!

New Pier Train!

So I've been wanting to get a shot of the new Southend Pier train for a while.
