Picture Post 1030 : On A Summer's Day


If you have ever seen the opening sequences of the splendid 1960 film Jazz on A Summer's Day you will recognise both the inspiration for, and the content of, this photograph I took during a walk around the yacht harbour at Puerto Benus a couple of weeks ago. The water was the most amazing colour and the reflections of the anchored yacht have had most of their harsher colours bleached out of them. And talking of jazz, I have a weekend at the Scarborough Jazz Festival planned. I know it is not Newport, but it is Yorkshire.

  1. Beautiful image. We're watching Ken Burns' Jazz documentary, and it's delicious. Not as delicious as live jazz, but still tasty. Enjoy the festival.

  3. I didn't realise it was a yacht... thought at first it was a building. Must get the eyes fixed....
