A woman from Southport

Yesterday the Fab Collective went to Southport to spend the day. A few of us set off very early and were rewarded by the train breaking down. That said I loved taking the train up there. Sure it took twice as long but theres something nice about watching the world go by on a train when you’re not in any real rush to get somewhere. I loved seeing Liverpool from the view point of the train. We went through my old haunt of Bootle where I spent a lot of time as a kid hanging out in the Strand. Loved it. We took various shots from landscapes to candids to portraits. Near the end of the day we were in a cafe and this old woman, Margaret Peers, started talking to us. She mentioned that during WW2 she worked in an ammo factory. 5 years ago she made the decision to become a Christian as you can see from the giant bible she carried around in her bag. She had come to believe in something and was ready to be accepted into heaven.

  1. The contrast and lighting in this shot are absolutely perfect! I love the expression on the woman’s face and the lettering on the book. Excellent.
