I walked to Newhaven Harbour last night to film the terns, I’d enjoyed Colin Brown’s guest blog on welcoming the terns back to the forth. I didn’t spot a tern but had a good time filming and thinking.
I wasn’t planning to do anything with the film footage until I read Ally’s piece about the memorial benches this afternoon. I was reminded that Newhaven Harbour is a special place for so many people and for so many reasons. I decided to make a film of why Newhaven Harbour was special to me last night, it’s all about the wind….. and the sun. I’ll explain.
The wind has been raging of late both outside in Edinburgh and inside, in my life. I want it to be calm but it’s unpredictable and scary. Last night I was reminded, sometimes you need to stop looking at the wind, stop listening to the storm and look up, look ahead and see the sun.
That’s what this film is about. I hope you enjoy it.
And if you really wanted to see a tern, Debbie Grant took a cracker of a photo of one above Gormley’s 6 Times.
