I still haven’t finished the bit-by-bit upload of pictures from Holy Island but the Cornish idyll required prompt action so I shoved up the lot earlier on, of which this is my favourite:

yesterday's racing crabs are recollected

Much crabbing was, um, crabbed. Many crustaceans were removed from the water, given temporary accommodation in a bucket and then returned to the sea either by being emptied out all in one go or by being forced to “race” down the beach, only for the entire process to be repeated the following morning. Oh the joys, for boys, of simply messing about on, in or near water.

The rest of the set is here, and for those who are not yet weary of my marvelous short films (surely everyone) there’s the excellent “five crabs and a piece of bacon” awaiting your viewing pleasure beneath the fold. I particularly recommend close attention to the non-vocal soundtrack. (Apart from the irritating high-pitched whining which was produced by the usual terrier suspect.)

  1. It’s all utterly wonderful! Joyously atmospheric. Full of the smell of seaside.

    I think a change of equipment every now and then is a really good thing, you start doing stuff with a different feel. And the video series is just fab.

    Some great portraits of the boys.

    I hadn’t realised how much The One Who is Not Yours looks like his mother – I guess because in person I have viewed him from above, not full in the face.

  2. Aaw, shucks 🙂 thanks! We were so lucky with the weather – it only mizzled for about half an hour in all the time we were there.

    I should probably have explained that not everyone will be able to see all the pictures in the set – most of those of the children are marked as visible only to my friends on flickr.
