Although it may not look it there were a fair few people around at Birling Gap. In this part of the beach however they were mainly naturists so the only thing to be self concious about was the rather odd activity of moving around and dumping oneself in short lived and rather odd positions for sunbathing, all done in the name of art of course. I kept the camera itself relatively discrete behind a rock because let’s face it, clothed or unclothed, the process of being observed taking self portraits is just a little embarrassing!
In the face of grandeur (2010)
Despite some people being about, there was a chance to get close to the cliff face and get this image. But one frame only! Under the circumstances I’m really pleased with the outcome.
This is a rare clothed self portrait to record the occasion of birthday number 54 today. Got an expresso machine & have overdosed on frothy capuccinos. Need to ground myself…. The pic was not taken today but Friday – which reminds me that I must stop fiddling with this computer & get out!
They were so in their own world that they did not spot me capturing their happiness. The vending machines were selling “sexy undies” – “knickers for a nicker” and “pouches for a pound”.
Mrs H. goes where I fear to tread
Today we ventured to the beach, unaware that Brighton had been taken over by hordes of bikers for the annual Burn-Up. Yards away the beach was a peaceful haven.

A portrait of Mike posing nude at his home with his art. This image is his art as much as mine.
Closing Down (Nude – 2010) I returned to my place in London yesterday for the penultimate occasion to clear out the last bits and pieces. I took the opportunity to use the empty spaces.
