In Family Bonding, Memory-keeping

Since moving to our new home in Barking the coast between Leigh-on-Sea and Shoeburyness has become a firm favourite. I especially love walking towards the Crowstone at Chalkwell as the sun is setting. The reflections in the tidal pools are a visual gift.

When I returned to my family after my Dad’s cancer diagnosis we walked along the coast from Thorpe Bay while a glorious sunset played out around us. These pictures also turned out to be the last with the 35 mm 1.4 lens that had been my constant companion for a decade, as I dropped and shattered it before we got on the train.

Happily, after Christmas the whole family walked along this stretch together for the first time and I delighted in watching my eldest document the day.

I am looking forward to take many, many more pictures along this stretch. Happy New Year!
