He Sees: Blue Haze Bruh

Happi - stones

“I should perhaps warn you that I am about to faint from anxiety and general depression, though. The film I saw last night was especially grueling, a teen-age beach musical. I almost collapsed during the singing sequence on surfboard.”
― John Kennedy Toole

Blur can be the enemy of the studio photographer who is looking for sharp focus and crisp details. It is an exciting challenge to capture the perfect shot that cheats depth of field and freezes the scene without movement.

To unwind from the need to be focused on focus, a trip to a faraway place out of your comfort zone is a great way to relax.

Happi - sticks

These photos were taken after a long drive in stormy weather in late Winter, at a place called Happisburgh (haze bruh) in Norfolk (Stephen Fry land).

It’s on the East coast of the UK, where the sea is attempting to reclaim the land and the people who live there are engaged in a constant battle to stop it from doing so. King Canute might have some advice about that.

Human nature versus the elements is an epic battle to behold, and magnificent to photograph.

It’s a very beautiful place to be, to visit, to witness and endeavour to capture.

“Ignatius, what’s all this trash on the floor?”
“That is my worldview that you see. It still must be incorporated into a whole, so be careful where you step.”

    • One of my favourite novels of all time. A wonderful writer and the inspiration for my own novel. Such a shame that he never lived to know how much his writing inspired others or indeed that his writing was appreciated by anyone.

      • I agree Stephen. My husband and I always quote each other favorite lines from novel. “Fortuna is spinning downhill….” “He must be lashed till he drops,” etc. I can only imagine what it would have been like to have Jonathan Kennedy Toole as a close friend. He would no doubt entertain endlessly with his sarcasm/humor/wit. Heartbreaking to know he was really crying on the inside…
