<<< o >>>the end of term 17 comments + add yours

I know I've been promising something different for a few days now but, once again, I didn't manage to get out. Tomorrow though should be a different story entirely as I'm photographing the TVR Back Home 2006 meetup which will include a speed demonstration from the 900bhp Cerbera Speed 12. It should be fun.

As for this shot: I guess I was drawn to this one because it's the end of term and the idea of simply buring exam papers on the beach (rather than marking them) is quite appealing ;-)

How unusual...a Harry Potteresque shot on the beach! Nice one!

That piece of paper brings back some horrible memories.... shudder. Lovely tones in this one though.

Ahh the good old trip to the beach for a fire and some book burning.

Hey David !
I really aprreciate this shot. I like the sharpness in the middel of the image and the colour suits, too. Interesting.

What a mixture of emotions this conveys...on the part of the student and the observer! High marks to YOU for noticing the shred, preserving it and sharing it with us. The photo is perfect in every way.

I love this since I did exactly the same a few weeks ago after the summer exams. SO satisfying and a wonderful photo.

Interesting. I can't wait until an off the beach shot tommorow though!

Oh goodness, IB exam papers do not bring back pleasant memories. This is quite the shot, however.
