It’s been a very wet summer here in the UK. July was the 6th wettest since records began in 1891.
I seemed to have spent many days watching the rain create rivulets on the window by my desk.
We need water. I like water, but not too much of it.
I’ve been thinking about the times in my documentary photography career when water really added to the occasion or became the subject itself. Water sometimes has that magical ability to sprinkle a little extra into an image.
Here’s a selection.
In 2013 I had the absolute pleasure to document the city of Hull’s entry into the P1 Powerboat Championships. Named ‘One Hull of a Boat’, the racing vessel was bought by a large collaboration of Hull businesses. A challenging summer of high-speed action on the Humber estuary, now recalled with great fondness.
