deeply excited

Eight months ago, back in the depths of winter, I had an email from Caireen asking me if I would be willing to let her use some of my photographs on a new television series she was working on. The brief was for 60 - 70 photographs of the coast, nature at the coast, and seascapes, all with a personal feel. Caireen was using some of her own photographs, and she also asked our friend Ginny for some images. All the chosen photographs were going to be used on the set depicting the home of one of the characters.

The series is called 'The Deep', starring James Nesbitt, Minnie Driver and Goran Visnijc, and the first episode is this tuesday, 3 August at 9pm on BBC1. As I don't have a television I will be glued to iplayer a little later on, hoping to catch a glimpse of our photos, with my finger poised on the pause button...


As a 'thank you' Caireen made me this wonderful framed mosaic of my coastal photos, which I love. For me it captures the essence of my blog and life by the sea. Thanks Caireen for asking me to participate!

As you can imagine, I'm a little bit excited....

I saw the first episode of "The Deep: The Furtherest Place". There were a few interior scenes, but no sign of any quality prints that I would associate with the work of Pebbledash (unless I missed them).

However, I did enjoy seeing Minnie Driver on film again: she is one of those fantastic women who has long legs :)
