On Standby

I had arranged a trip to Bournemouth for my girlfriend’s birthday. The sun was out but only just and by the time we arrived on the beach the weather decided to turn grey in a typically English way. But hey, we were still going to enjoy ourselves no matter what. I think the deserted beach and reflection of the pier evokes a mood worthy of the conditions. The yellow of the lifeguard’s board on Bournemouth beach seems to shine in the grey weather.
