Not drowning but waving.

Here we have the view from Brighton Pier taken on the Bank Holiday a couple of weeks ago. As it is very close to a sewage outfall most people presumed  the pretty patterns to be the result of human bowels, in fact ( I was reliably told) it is an algal bloom.  I must admit  even armed with that knowledge I would have hesitated at the waters edge, though mind you as I have not swam in the sea for many years I would have done so anyway. Makes a nice little snap but only works with addition of the old photographic cliche of the poignant lonely person.  Algal Bloom….sounds like a character from Joyce’s Ullysses  ( I never got past the first chapter ! )
