Salt & Vinegar by Chris Lord

The downpour outside had become merely drizzle. The chilling wind only an occasional gust. Now after filling themselves with hearty fish and chips they began to feel warm and comforted. Yvonne gazed out of the window at the free flying seagulls begging for food across the street. Charlie thoughtfully gazed at Yvonne as he sipped his hot coffee. He reached into his trench coat pocket to pull out a packet of Woodbines. As he struck a match to light her cigarette he thought with a new desire that soon it would be time to return to their cheap but cosy bed and breakfast…………

Oscar’s is by the river in Littlehampton in the South of England. The Fish & Chips were pretty good!

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at
