A lot of my photos are quite colourful, or at least depend on colour to work. But our constricted life can be rather dreary and uninspiring just now, so that prompted me to set myself a challenge to find some understated images on my doorstep (metaphorically rather than literally – the beach is just over a mile from the house). This set was all taken on my local beach over a couple of days, and celebrates all things off-white, grey, beige, ecru, taupe, buff and fawn!

Sgraffito – Laura is cute!
