MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 3 #10

Runswick Bay

One of the nicest places we visited in North Yorkshire during our 1970's holidays was Runswick Bay. This is probably one of the "standard" shots taken of the place but I feel it is none the worse for that.

This is a lovely little place with loads of photo opportunities in the little streets winding their way up the sides of the cliff. There is a website for the village which can be found at http://www.runswick.com/

Well we reach the weekend once again, just one more week of this very long series to go, have a good one, back on Monday.

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)

It really has that 70's Country Sea side feel.
Agree with your analysis
Cheers

Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Rob, this is a place I would like to go back to, I'm sure it won't have changed too much.

It's the kind of place I'm very attracted to, Brian, much more so than the "cig bities!"
Brian Walbey: It's a Maureen and me sort of place Ginnie, or at least it was then, I hope it hasn't changed too much. Thanks for your comment.

Very nice Brian: I confess I've never heard of this charming place
Brian Walbey: A few miles north of Whitby Chris, which is another great place, both are well worth a visit. Thanks for your comment.

Looks nice Brian. I confess I have not heard of the place!

I wonder if it has changed a lot since those days. Have you been back?

Love that little Tinkertoy tractor, Brian.
This must be the rare oceangoing model. [grin]
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Ray, they use these tractors to drag the boats in and out of the water at low tide. Thanks for your comment.

Very nice, Brian. Looks a bit like a late 1950s seaside postcard.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Alan.
Looks like a 'must visit' kind of place. Lovely photo Brian

Its nice to see Runswick through the eyes of a photographer and not a travel magazine. Its so different... lovely image Brian, looks like a nice, quaint place
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mia. It is a long time since we went there , I hope it hasn't gone too much in to the 21st.century.
