A slate grey sky made for rather flat light today in Pittenweem. That meant looking for something different to photograph where the light would be less necessary for shaping the subject. I’d hoped to photograph the harbour but the lack of contrast just meant everything was rather uninspiring. Across the road from the quayside, however, my eye was caught by these beer kegs turned into seats with cushions. I felt it was an interesting composition and the creels confirm we are in a harbour location.

This isn’t a typical shot from Pittenweem but it avoids the harbour cliches and it’s a reminder that we need to be open to seeing things differently. In the end I’m pleased that the otherwise disappointing light conditions forced me to spot a different subject.

This was shot on ISO800, 1/40th sec at f9
