If it is the last time

documentary photographer in Cornwall

I started this mini documentary series at Fistral beach. The sun was hiding behind the clouds but it was warm. The tide was on the turn and the seagulls flew overhead.

I began to wonder...what if this was the last time?

The last time I saw a beach or was able to walk out in the fresh air. Would I view things differently? Would it affect my photography?

What I found surprised me.

As a PR Photographer, I have learned to work at great speed, but now...as if it really was the last time, I wanted to study every detail; absorb the colours, the smell of the sea, the textures.

And I wondered why we are always in such a rush to experience things when we have everything we need right now. Beauty is all around us, we just have to remember to look.
