Ten photos from March 2018 - putting up Weymouth beach, and much more...

Ten photos from last month in chronological order. From Weymouth, Dorchester and Bath...

Clicking on a photo might start a slideshow, depending on your set-up.

[1. Dorchester dog, snow, Belledorm, Goulds, tree, street photography]

(I narrowly avoided getting stranded in Dorchester - roads had ground to a halt; I got one of the last trains before they also ground to a halt. That's the last time I ignore an amber weather warning.)

[2. Hi-vis, Weymouth, sausage dog, crow, boats]

[3. Weymouth, shadows, hut, ladder]

[4. Weymouth telescope, view point, roof, seaside street photography, beach]

[5. Weymouth snails, dog, woman, beach, seaside]

[6. Bath, Somerset, dog, couples, rope, street photography, people of Bath]

[7. Bath, Somerset, street photography, pasties, rug, mat]

[8. Crows, Weymouth, corvids, line, line-up, queue, formation]

[9. Seagulls fighting, Weymouth, screen, gauze]

[10. Roundabout, Weymouth, erecting, beach, seaside]

I must get round to posting some photos from participants in last year's street photography workshops for the next blog posts...

Closing time for Meech's Menswear

A sad sight - a few photos I took in Meech's Menswear in Weymouth, shortly before this splendid shop closed its doors for good at the end of January 2018.

This traditional gentleman’s outfitters first opened in 1928. The shop’s owner, David Meech - son of the original owner John Henry Meech - is retiring.

They can still be found selling online at www.meechs.co.uk, www.farahtrousers.co.uk and www.menswear-warehouse.co.uk
