Morecambe Bay monochrome

Black and white photograph of tidal channels

Looking back over my collection of digital images I wondered what was the first digital photograph I took that I thought was not just a ‘snapshot’. My first digicam was a Fujifilm point and shoot with 2 megapixels and JPG only capture. I used that alongside my Nikon 35mm film camera to capture family life and holidays. The image above was taken in 2004 and the colour version was nothing special, but a quick conversion to a very contrasty black and white lifted it a bit and showed what I saw in my mind’s eye when I took the picture. The quality is terrible but that doesn’t matter – it showed me the possibilities.
