Tobay Beach #2

Yesterday I offered the first of the five pinhole images that are being offered this week and began my explanation, so you may wish to reference that.

Arriving at Tobay Beach, we pulled the car off to the side of the road and walked toward an entrance point to the Atlantic side of the beach – across the road was the bay side. The others wandered onto the edge of the beach while I continued on to the lifeguard stand, which was also at the edge of the beach but was further from the entrance point. I had only taken a few images when I saw one of the larger waves on its way in. As it crashed onto the beach I realized that although most of the waves had stopped about 50 feet away from me, this one was going to be much different. I jumped onto the lifeguard stand several seconds before about two feet of water crashed below me. The others had their own concerns, which I will mention tomorrow. I completed shooting until I finished the roll of 120 film I had in my pinhole camera.

    Hi there,
    I absolutely love this picture, and was wondering if I could have your permission to use it as the basis for a projection in a media design for a theatre show I’m doing. I’m from the Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, and the production is of Howard Barker’s “Victory”. You would absolutely be credited in all of my copyright documentation. Great work!
