Well if you haven't heard me babbling on about the great weather recently you've maybe just ignored me or are following me for no other reason than being another lost sheep so you'll not be interested in this post in any shape or form anyway.
As we all know when the sunshine comes out here in Northern Ireland you'll find most people inevitably flock to the North Antrim Coast. It's the place where you're most likely to see people lose their inhibitions ever so slightly and the majority generally don't really care who's pointing a camera in their general direction either as long as you don't go overboard. To be honest I'm not a big fan of invading someone's personal space and whilst I love the genre of street photography I think some of it is over-rated. I think a lot of it is dependent on where you are in the world and also how brave or stupid you may be. I'd say if you took the same approach over here in certain instances you would get what's commonly known as a good shoe'ing! Enough about that though.
Coincidentally I had just read an article in this month's Lonely Planet Traveller mag which features Martin Parr and his images were in the back of my mind when I was taking some of these shots but at the end of the day it was really nothing more than a family day out and another opportunity to get the camera out and capture some memories. It was a glorious day and we were witness to a brilliant sea mist that drifted across for about half hour which made for a very surreal looking beach at one stage of the day. Enjoy.
