Polperro from the seaThe pictures in this web site were all taken by me over a number of years. Polperro is a place I keep returning to because of it's unique atmosphere. A combination of being a world of it's own, away from the noise and hustle of the rest of the world. Where you can walk without considering whether it is safe to cross the road. A place where you can wander and find interesting and intriguing corners wherever you turn.

Some of the pictures here are general images of Polperro and some are close up glimpses of detail. I particularly enjoy abstracting bits of this location. These abstractions, I think, help to complete the picture of what it is that makes Polperro such a special place.

Polperro nets and floats

 

 

 

I really get great satisfaction from finding something like this on an early morning walk around the harbour. These nets and floats had been placed along the quayside temporarily and presenting such a wonderful set of images. As is so often the case this was just a brief moment these objects were not there for long.

 

 

Polperro Hole in a Rock

 

 

 

This rock can be found on the easten side of the harbour mouth. The green of the growth on it contrasts superbly with the darkness of the rock beyond.

 

 

 

There are such a wealth of objects that turn up almost on a day to day basis and often they present such great opportunities for a really interesting picture.

Steps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And off the beaten track there are other great locations. Steps are becoming a bit of a theme in my pictures. I have always had a fascination with steps, tracks and passageways.
