An Old Love Affair Rekindled

I had some errands to run this morning, the sun was out, it was glorious!

I wasn't quite ready to go home so I took a walk along the pier, it's been a while!
During the winter I visited the pier alot it was like a love affair, just the pier and me before the crowds arrived.

Over time I stopped visiting, busy with other things. My son is getting older and his needs have changed, toddler group has been our thing in the mornings.

I took some new photographs. It seems the pier and I needed a little break so we could see each other with fresh eyes.

....I have fallen back in love again.


  1. I hate the Palace Pier, or did because I had always associated it with small children begging to play on the noisy machines. And bad pubs and over-priced donuts. But I've never really been there with photographers eyes, and your pictures inspire me. Jon.

  2. I agree, Jon. It's a tacky, nightmare of a place but try it first thing in the morning.
    It's quite surreal with music playing over the loud speakers and empty of people.

    Thank you for your comment!

  3. those photos display nostalgia and whimsy -my favorite combination!

  4. I really like your photos. I'm a sucker for medium format film and I like the subjects.
