Taken at Plemont Bay, Jersey.
Aleatoric, at least serendipitous; accident follows intent, concept and, in this heavily edited reflection upon Jersey's unique, Pan-European beauty, chance worked dreamily and fairly well. The concept was simple, to exploit the perspective that was exaggerated by the close proximity of the wild foliage at the bottom of the photo and to report on beauty and fecundity. As I was editing the photograph, the painful state of the UK's, supposed and protracted exit from the EU entered my mind on numerous occasions, hence the title. Jersey is equally British and French and a little bit Continental European, per se! If Jersey can exist as a multicultural, pro-European, pro-British island state, then it would seem commonsensical to conclude that the UK could co-exist with its Continental neighbours. I am very Pro-European and anti Brexit, culturally, economically and intellectually, indeed I love the global nature of our shrinking world and cannot abide artificial segregation and "exclusivity". I hope my dream of European cohesion and collaboration doesn't become an aloof, beautiful fantasy, and Brexit or no Brexit we can continue to travel between countries freely, retain our unique heritages and cultures, while enjoying our intrinsic differences.
