St.Monans Pictures

here are some more pictures of St.Monans taken when i was acting as wedding photographer.

this picture show the minister, who was an incredible 6 ft 7, blending into the church doorway, with a fiery burst of red hair.

this image shows the surreal fog, that comes from being right beside the sea. this was shot in the town of Elie, very close to St.Monans.

we were sitting on the beach in Elie and heard noises from the water. suddenly a boat came out of the fog to cries of turn round, turn round, from the frightened passengers as they approached the shore.

this is a pic of Bulbgirl making her way carefully over seaweed covered rocks that jut out into the water, with canoes passing by in the background. the light on the east coast is quite different to Glasgow especially with 'the har', the bizarre fog that we don't get on the west coast. as a student in Dundee a decade ago, i remember on a couple of really hot sunny days, this strange fog would just quickly roll in from nowhere.

Happy Couple

on friday 13th Bulbgirl and i went to a wedding. it was in Fife. St.Monans to be precise. my friends Steven and Susan were getting hitched in a place that is dear to their hearts. they don't come from that area but have been there often enough on holiday to fall in love with the place. i can see why. the town has a very dream-like quality.

they are both talented artists and are well matched. here are two paintings by Susan. one is a portrait of Steven, and the other is a selfportrait:
