coastlines 2 / 海岸線 2

April 22, 2011





19 March 2002, UK
‘Coastlines’
Photography: Richard Cooke

Another five stamps complete the set.  Again, a variety of coastlines are shown – characteristic chalk cliffs, sunbathing people on beach, beach huts lined up, sailing boats, and a coast road alongside old mining industry.

Although I am not a great fan of stamps with photography, I have to admit photoraphy has the power to stop a moment and show us documentary fact.

この「海岸線」切手は10枚で1セットです。残りの5枚も載せます。切り立った石灰岩の崖、ビーチで日光浴する人たち、海辺の小屋が並ぶ海岸、浅瀬を迂回するボート、古い採鉱跡地。

写真が使われた切手はどちらかというと好みではないのですが、写真は「瞬間を切り取って」事実をみせてくれ、自分の住んでいる地球のことを教えてくれることに改めて気づきます。
