#1 You love to be down by the beach huts. You spend your time hanging out on the steps, the decks, climbing balustrades, and tinkering with the various locks and door handles. Come the summer, when the beach hut owners will be back enjoying their little bit of seaside loveliness, I predict you’ll be most put out.

#2 Practising your new found skill of whistling. I’m wondering whether missing teeth are the key ingredient to your mastery. I guess we’ll find out soon because they are growing back incredibly quickly (and not entirely straight; you’re so desperate for braces that you’re willing them to be wonky!)

In the last week or two I’ve been inspired (and fallen in love with) the photography and family film making of Xanthe Berkeley. My photo of Boy2 against the blue beach hut was not originally intended for the 52 Project. Instead, I was trying out a few ideas based on Xanthe’s Color//Colour project; a collaboration with Portland based photographer Andrea. Their project is just coming to a close and the results are simply stunning. I kind of fancied doing something similar myself, just for me. But anyway, I liked my blue beach hut unportrait so I’ve used it here for week 9/52.

Joining in with all manner of loveliness over at Practising Simplicity and Living Arrows (where I first discovered Xanthe. Isn’t the internet a wonderful place).

    • Thanks Meagan ๐Ÿ™‚ yes, Xanthe’s work is so lovely. Have you watched any if her vimeo movies? So inspiring. A colour project is a must!

    • Thanks for your kind comment, Laura x The light at the beach is usually pretty lovely, and the colours down there are gorgeous too xx

  1. I love your beach hut “non” portrait, it made me click through on your thumbnail on Living Arrows. I had seen Xanthe’s pictures coming up in Living Arrows every week, but now have actually started following her blog too (and yours!) The better the photography is that I surround myself with, the better mine becomes (I like to think at least!)

    • Thanks for following, Clare. These link ups are so good for finding other people and for feeling inspired…I’m constantly amazed at the talent and creativity out there…there us so much I want to try so I know exactly how you feel ๐Ÿ™‚
