Continue reading Seven Photographs: The Exe by Exeter

There is a walkway that follows the river Exe south, out of the town of Exeter. Part of the path follows the old spur waterway, that once fed the mills. Now the water rests comfortably in its banks. By the playing fields, owned by Exeter University, trees are felled. An impromptu memorial, underneath a symbol […]

In the afternoon, when I should be at home, sitting in front of my laptop, madly typing away, or patiently editing photographs, I sometimes go for a walk, usually down the coast, toward Exmouth. Both Lympstone and Exmouth are on the Exe estuary. So my walk follows the edge of the coast. An estuary is […]
